Helpful Holiday Shopping Tips!

Some people are finished shopping. Others haven’t started yet. Most people fall somewhere in the middle. Whether you need to start shopping or if you need to grab some last-minute gifts, keep scrolling for some not-to-be-missed helpful holiday shopping tips!

Helpful Holiday Shopping Tips

  • Make a list. This tip comes straight from the big guy at the North Pole. If you’re afraid you’ll lose a handwritten list, use the notepad app on your phone.
  • When you cross the last person and gift off your list, stop shopping and give yourself a congratulatory pat on the back. This helps prevent overspending and leaves room for you to treat yourself to with a little gift from Santa or a delicious holiday treat.
  • Avoid endless online browsing by setting a timer. Knowing that you have a limited amount of time helps prevent falling into a rabbit hole of irrelevant items that nobody really wants or needs.
  • When you’re at a loss for what to give someone, give them a gift card to a small business, like an indie bookstore.
  • Buy stocking stuffers that pair with gifts under the tree. For example, crayons and markers make inexpensive stocking stuffers if the gift under the tree is a coloring book. A bookmark makes a great stocking stuffer if paperbacks are under the tree.
