    Christmas is right around the corner. It is hard to imagine celebrating Christmas without thinking about giving gifts. Christmas is the season of sharing and togetherness, and it is celebrated with great enthusiasm and by giving Christmas gifts. As the gift-giving season is upon us, it is a good time to remember that gifts are a powerful form of communication. This Christmas make your loved ones feel special and show your love by giving the best gift.

    Finding presents for your loved ones shouldn’t be about stress… Follow these important holiday shopping tips, to prepare before wondering how much the damage will be done this year, ha..ha..ha…

    1. Make a List => Like Santa, you want to make sure you don’t forget anyone.

    This is the most basic and most important thing that you can do to organize your Christmas shopping. Drop down the names of people you are planning to give presents to in a notebook you can carry in your bag. You can classify them according to groups such as family, friends, and co-workers to avoid leaving anyone out.

    2. Value, Not Price => Make sure to put a reasonable cap on the amount you are willing to spend.

    The value of a gift depends on what it means to the recipient, and how much thought and love went into its selection, not its price tag. Nobody wants to be broke during the holidays. Remember that your presents don’t have to be expensive,  it’s the thought that counts.

    3. Make Schedule to Shop => Especially if you plan to shop with your girls.

    Don’t think that you can finish it all in one day because, traffic conditions and the number of people who go to the malls at this time of year. If you think that the presents you are giving out can’t be found in one place, group them according to where you can get them.  Spread your task over a span of days. This will lessen your stress and give you more time to do other things.

    4. Wear comfortable shoes => Remember Santa is not in high heels! 

    Keep your feet happy during a fun-filled day of Christmas shopping. Keep your bag lightweight because you will be carrying shopping bags as the day goes on.

    5. Shop Online => Browse for a good deal, and your presents only one click away!

    Who said Christmas shopping needs to involve traffic jams, long lines, and crowded shopping malls? If you are considering doing your shopping online, this means you won’t even have to leave home. Make sure you take the cost of shipping into account when you’re doing your research. This can add up, especially if you’re ordering from several different websites.

    Ok shoppers, take advantage of these Christmas shopping tips to avoid holiday stress. Start your shopping early in the season and stick to your list, trust me in the end of the day,  your wallet and bank account will thank you for it, ha..ha.. ha..

    Happy shopping for your loved ones…
