This is the time of year when most of us are looking for gifts for our family and friends. I want to offer you some tried and true tips for staying on task and getting your shopping and wrapping done without too much fuss and bother.
First of all, make a complete list of the people to whom you are giving gifts.
Next, think about the sorts of things that each person likes. Do you want to buy a gift to wrap or would this person like to join you for an afternoon at a spa or a trip to the movies followed by dinner? I love to give gifts that involve sharing time with those I care about. That’s something that works for me but that might not work for you. Particularly if the recipient doesn’t live nearby.
Schedule time to shop and go with a specific person or several people in mind. Try not to shop for everyone at once!
Then, as you buy your gifts or gift certificates take them home and wrap them. This way they are wrapped, tagged and ready to go. You can mail them off when the time is right or deliver them in person whenever at the appropriate time.
I hope these little tips will help you in your quest to doing your holiday shopping!
