Simplify Holiday Gifting
Holiday chaos is in full swing. If you want to eliminate some stress during the holidays, plan out your gift-giving strategy. Here are a few tips:
Make a List and Check It Twice
Having an organized list will make shopping simple. As ideas pop into your head, add them to the list. Try an app like Giftster to keep track of ideas, purchases, and budget.
Check to see if your friends and family keep an Amazon Wishlist. It’s a great way to buy gifts for that person you have no idea what to get. Always a good idea to keep your own list too–it makes gifting and receiving so much easier.
Don’t Follow the Crowd
Shopping online is the obvious choice, but if you go to the mall, avoid weekends and take advantage of extended holiday hours during the week.
You don’t have to purchase a unique gift for each person. Buy some general gifts that you can give to several people, then buy a few extra for last minute gifts to have on hand.
Avoid Shopping for Yourself
That impulse purchase is the goal of the store. Keep to your list and let your shopping be for others. Remember it’s better to give than to receive.
Give Clutter-Free Gifts
Rather than a trinket, give an experience. Spending time together can be more valuable than an actual gift.
