Some advices for you on shopping Christmas gifts and other holiday giftsPosted on November 30th, 2012 | 1 comment
Quite soon, the 2012 Christmas is arriving. As the most popular holiday of the year, one thing is unavoidable. That is to give Christmas gifts to friends or family members. For me, it was once a really hard task as I have little idea on what to gift and don’t like shopping to get gifts. Because of the allodoxaphobia, I always don’t know what to choose during shopping. For years, I have been afraid of Christmas and other gift giving holidays.
Things get changed since my friend, Damon, gave me some suggestions on Christmas and other holiday gift giving. Now, it becomes quite easy for me to shop the right gifts for my friends and family. He gave me some advices on shopping holiday gifts which are showed below. Hope you can also get some inspiration from these suggestions.
Firstly, you should set the cost limit, which means how much you plan to spend on the gift. You should do this on your own budget. Of course, if you want to make some DIY gifts, like DIY DVD discs from Christmas movies, you can only spend a few dollars on gifting.
Then, make a list. You need to create a list on who and what to gift. A list would help you remember what to buy during shopping, either online or in physical sops. Make sure each person you will give to is on the list. Be sure the items you choose are not above your spending limit. Also, set the cost limit on the list for everyone and every gift, in case of impulse shopping to get overspended.
Of course, you also need to learn how to bargain. Bargain with the seller to get a lower price will help to save you a lot of money.
Meanwhile, you need to start the preparing work early. Christmas, and other gift giving occasions, occur on the same day every year. Besides you, other people also purchase gifts for giving. An early preparing work would make it much easier and relaxed.
Shop online if possible. Nowadays, the online marketing is also very popular. And it is also very common for online shops to make big discount before various gift giving holidays. Some would even give free giveaway gifts. Such kind of campaigns would also help to save money for you.
