How to save money on Christmas gifts
How many times have you spent more than you could afford on Christmas gifts for your family? How many times have you bought gifts that were not what you were looking for and also paid large amounts of money for them?
It has happened to all of us too many times.
Well, you can SAVE money on all your Christmas gifts by:
1. Make a list.
It is always a good idea to make a list of all the people you will be giving a gift to.
Make sure you know what their interests are to receive a gift that they will appreciate. It will make it special for them and for you.
2. What to buy for someone who has everything?
Baskets, candles, a good book or a store certificate can be the perfect gift for that special someone who has it all.
3. Advance purchase.
Don’t wait until the last minute to go Christmas shopping because you’ll end up paying high prices for things you don’t even like. This is especially the case with the most popular Christmas toys because many people look for them in local stores, and since quantities are limited, you won’t find them unless you go early Christmas shopping.
If you decide to go to a local mall, be sure to do it during the first two weeks of November. You will avoid most Christmas shoppers and are guaranteed to find what you are looking for at lower prices.
4. Take advantage
Pre-Christmas online sales.
Most stores offer deep discounts online (up to 70%) on toys, clothing, accessories, gifts, candles, and more before Christmas during the months of October and November. They even offer free shipping with your order.
5. Shop from the comfort of your home.
Every year more people shop online to save time and money. By shopping online, you will be able to view every item in each gift category that interests you without the hassle of searching an entire store or waiting in long lines, only to find that what you are looking for is not available. or it is too expensive.
You will also receive the items you purchased ahead of time, giving you time to pack them ahead of time.
The holiday season should be spent with family and friends rather than worrying about making time for holiday shopping.
Have a great vacation.
