When it comes to Christmas shopping, there are two kinds of people.
One starts their shopping in October, and the other leaves it to Christmas Eve.
If you fall into the second category, don’t worry. We’ve got a challenge for you this year. Why not think of it now, two weeks before Christmas? That way, you can crack a beer or kick back with a glass of wine and enjoy the Christmas spirit, no stress.
Let’s unwrap our gift giving tips.
Nothing feels as good as giving a gift
Maybe you leave your present buying to the last minute because you’re always unsure what to buy everyone. Avoid wandering aimlessly around shops and create your shopping list, now.
Ask yourself these questions.
Is there something they’ve been talking about?
It could be their favourite band coming to town, a theatre show or a new restaurant. Think about how you can incorporate this into a gift. The event doesn’t have to happen in December or January. You could buy a ticket for it for any time in 2019. They’ll love having something to look forward to.
Did they do something special this year?
How was 2018 big for them? Did they go on a big trip, graduate university, land a new job or get married? If so, why not make a frame or something creative, celebrating it? If you can’t think of anything, you could get them a gift about something they’ve got planned for the following year. Think about the small moments. For example, your friend might have spoken about getting fit. Why not buy them a gym bag or Fitbit?
