by : Maria Estarellas

How many times have you spent more that you could afford on Christmas gifts or Christmas Hampers for your family and friends?

How many times have you bought gifts that weren't what you were looking for and on top of that, paid top dollars for them? It has happened to all of us one too many times.

Ways to Save Money on Christmas Gifts

  • 1. Make a list.
    It's always convenient to make a list of all the people that you will be giving a gift to. Make sure you know what their interests are so you get a gift that they will appreciate. It will make it special for them and for you.
  • 2. What to buy for someone that has everything?
    Baskets, candles, a good book or a store certificate can be the perfect gift for that special person that has everything.

  • 3. Buying in advance.
    Don't wait until the last minute to go Christmas shopping because you'll end up paying high prices for stuff you don't even like. This happens specially with the hottest Holiday Toys because a lot of people look for them at local stores and since quantities are limited, you won't find them unless you go Christmas shopping early. If you decide to go a local mall, make sure you do it during the first two weeks of November. You'll avoid the majority of Christmas shoppers and you are guaranteed to find what you're looking for at lower prices.
  • 4. Take advantage of Online pre-Christmas Sales.
    Most stores offer deep online discounts (up to 70%) on toys, clothing, accessories, gifts, candles, and more before Christmas during the months of October and November. They even offer Free Shipping with your order.
  • 5. Buy from the comfort of your home.
    Every year, more people buy online to save time and money. By buying online, you'll be able to see every item on every gift category you're interested in without the hassle of searching a whole store or waiting in long lines, only to find out that what you're looking for is not available or is overpriced.

You'll also receive the items you purchased early, giving you time to wrap them in advance. The Christmas Season should be spent with family and friends instead of worrying about looking for time to go Christmas shopping.

Have a great Holiday Season.
