Gift with love this Season without the stress!
It's almost that time of the year: Christmas! The season for giving, yummy treats, beautiful decorations, celebration, and... the stress of last-minute shopping. We've put together a quick guide to help you have a stress-free Giving Season.
# 1 - Budget
We're all about Celebrating and gifting with love - but you shouldn't have to be stuck in debt from overspending.
Create a specific budget so you can enjoy the season without breaking the bank. If you struggle with keeping yourself accountable, find a buddy that can give you support.
# 2 - Get Clear
Make a list of family, friends, and anyone who made it on your Nice list and discover what they love! Clarity on what to look for will help you keep relaxed, focused, and on budget.
Ask subtle questions or observe their behaviors. What do they like? Do they enjoy reading? Baking? Makeup? Do you observe any patterns in their behavior like going to Starbucks every morning, etc?
# 3 - Instant Gifts?
Technology has allowed us to go beyond just physical gifts. Digital Gifts are a wonderful option since they require no shipping or gift wrapping. Books and courses are a great option for someone who loves personal development or reading. And let's be real, we all know how stressful last-minute shopping is.
Look for digital gift options on platforms like Amazon and teachable. You can even go for platforms like Nintendo if you have a gamer to gift to.
If your ideal gift is physical, check to see if gift wrapping is available and if items can be shipped directly to your gift recipient.
# 4 - Save Time & Money
When searching for multiple gifts, time and money can become your biggest obstacle. But worry not, now's the perfect time to fill those goodie bags with gifts.
Take advantage of Black Friday & Cyber Monday (psst: we're having up to 50 % OFF) sales online to save time and money and get your gifts on time.
# 5 Enjoy
Above all, enjoy your time with your family, friends, and loved ones. What's the holidays without the people you love?!
If you can not travel, host online parties with apps like Zoom. If you're able to travel, use proper safety measures to enjoy the holidays with your loved ones.
