If there’s anything Christmas movies taught us, it’s that there is a list and no, we don’t mean the naughty or nice list – we mean a shopping list. Each year, we all get to play Santa for our family and friends but sometimes buying the perfect presents for our loved ones can be a lot of pressure, so how do we deal with it? First, it’s important to remember that it’s not about the money but rather the thought behind the present. Here are 3 easy steps to get you through the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping.
Step One: Plan Ahead
It never hurts to have a plan. Write down what you had in mind for each person on your list as well as where you’d be able to find them, this way there will be zero chances of distractions.
Step Two: Visit Online Stores
Whether you’re somebody who prefers to do all their shopping online or in stores, checking a stores website (or even calling) to see if they have what you’re looking for can save you hours of aimlessly walking around.
Step Three: It’s all in the wrapping
Gift giving goes beyond what’s inside the box, part of the holiday spirit is unwrapping the presents so be sure to add the extra effort and time into wrapping. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy but a curled ribbon and a nicely written card goes a long way.
Happy Holiday Everyone!
