Whether you’re looking for monogram necklaces for your sisters and BFFs, or if you’re hunting for gift certificates to local venues, it’s easier to spread your efforts out over the course of a few months instead of cramming everything into a few short, traffic jam-packed weeks. Many shoppers report feeling overwhelmed and rushed, with a to-do list a mile long and not enough time to take care of the shopping, the wrapping, and the shipping, not to mention other holiday essentials like enjoying festive fun with the people you love!
