Do you notice that every store on the planet is ready for Christmas well before YOU are ready? Does it "sneak up on you" every single year? How soon is too early to start Christmas shopping? Early Christmas shopping saves all that last-minute rushing around. If you have a plan set you can be more effective, save money, and enjoy the Christmas season more.
Yes, We Said SEPTEMBER!
As many as 1/3 of smart shoppers start their Christmas shopping in September. What do they know that you don't? They know that shopping early takes away about 99% of your holiday STRESS and we can ALL use that!
Hate crowds? If so, getting your Christmas shopping done early is a good idea because as we all know, the closer we get to December 25th, the busier stores and malls become. We also think this is where Wicked Wonders VIP Bling SHINES for you! Since we are online, you can shop now....on your couch....in your PJs, whenever!
Here are some of our favorite tips to help you get your Christmas Shopping done painlessly and ahead of the curve!
Know who you are buying gifts for. Some people only shop for close family and friends. Other people put together Christmas gifts for just about everyone they know. Regardless, having a jump on the season keeps your wallet from taking a nose-dive in December. Thankfully, here at Wicked Wonders, we can help you fulfill a ton of wishes all in one convenient online boutique!
.Set a budget. Christmas presents should be built into your household or personal budget for the entire year. This is much easier as opposed to just trying to find the extra money somehow every November or December. You can always start by saving a small amount every month or by purchasing a few gifts every month. Keep a general idea of how much you will spend on each person. Whether its for a close family member or a coworker, we have options starting as low as $5.00 (and we even offer gift boxing!)
Keep track of presents. Don't lose the present or forget who you bought it for (us Moms are classically known for this - LOL). Its smart to have a designated area for presents, such as a tote, section of the closet, or attic (lock it up to keep nosey noses out of your stash). Be sure that gifts won't be ruined by variations of temperature, humidity, mold, mice, and so on (a place inside your home is recommended since it is temperature controlled). Write the name of the designated gift-receiver on a removable sticker (post its work perfectly). Bonus, if you change your mind, it's easy to re-designate. Cross their name off the list as soon as possible to avoid forgetting that you already bought them something.
Wait too long and it might be gone! If you have a specific gift in mind you might want to shop early if there’s a chance it might sell out during the busy shopping season. All stores, ours included, sell out of items MUCH faster in November and December so try to forget about
procrastinating. With our convenient shopping portal, there is no reason to wait for any boutique gifts you plan to purchase.
