As the holidays draw near, I find myself trying to make a mental list of who I need to buy for and what I think they would like. But, I know what happens when I only make a mental list...you guessed it. See Tip #2 ;-)
I have friends who are very organized and have their shopping done by October 1 (insert envious face). For the most part, making a list is as far as I get until mid-December. Going to shopping malls is something I'm doing less and less of. Are you doing the majority of your shopping online, too? Mall shopping just adds to my stress levels.
Tips for stess-less holiday shopping:
1. If the person you are shopping for is ridiculously hard to buy for, consider making a donation to their favorite charity. Be sure it's their favorite though, not yours, for a true gift for the receiver.
2. Use your smartphone and "notes" to help you remember who you want to shop for and for making your shopping list. Technology really comes in handy for logging in your purchases and helps to keep track of gifts bought for friends and family.
3. The best day to shop online is Cyber Monday! This year it's Monday, November 27. Parisian's Pure Indulgence will be offering some great holiday deals on Small Business Saturday (November 25) and on Cyber Monday. Watch for them! If you're not on our mailing list, you'll want to be, so that your the first to hear about our specials!
We have a couple of gift ideas that we hope will make your shopping easier, that I demonstrate in this video. Wait until you see our gift with purchase! We appreciate it when you share our video's ;-)
