Avoid the Rush

Shop Mother's Day Gifts on Zazzle.comI don’t know how the holiday season is where you live but around here it can be anything but jolly! The roads are busy, the car parks are full and despite the Christmas spirit, many people are frustrated and tempers run short making Christmas gift shopping a very unpleasant process.

You can avoid the Christmas rush, panic buying, risk of empty shelves, out of stock notices and worse – SOLD OUT signs by starting your seasonal shopping and preparations early. Don’t worry you can leave decorating the tree till Christmas week!

Avoid Sold Out – Out of Stock Disappointment

Speaking of  ‘sold out’ notices. What could be worse than your little boo boo dreaming about that one Christmas gift all year round, you saving up for it and then it being sold-out when it is time to buy it! This is every parents worst nightmare. You’ve seen the movie right? 🙂 The one with Arnie. Save yourself the drama and start Xmas shopping now.

Check gifts are in-tact and sort returns in time for Christmas

Another reason to shop now; what if little Jonnie opens his much desired gift and … it doesn’t work! I don’t know about you, but I have tested every Christmas gift with working parts before I gave it to my kids to unwrap. The only thing worse than them not getting what they want is getting it and it is broken. And if it IS broken, then you need time to take it back and get a replacement .. test that one etc.

Avoid Postal Delays

If you’re ordering personalized gifts this year you will absolutely need to shop early. The Christmas period for customized products starts from October (in my experience). It is a hugely busy time for print on demand companies and as such there can be delays getting your product made and posted out in good time. And again, you need time to quality test before giving it as a gift.

Kids won’t be gift hunting

Perhaps less important as a reason for shopping early is that it will throw your kids off the scent. The scent of presents that is!

Children are especially vigilant around the Christmas and Thanksgiving period because they know somewhere there are presents! You will have to be on ‘operation stealth’ to do all that gift shopping, wrapping and hiding without them seeing you. They will not be expecting all this activity right now, so you can relax .. put the Ninja costume back in the Halloween box and shop at leisure, when they’re at school.

Finally, lots of gifts mean lots of gift wrapping. Don’t leave this till the last-minute like last year. You will have so many more things to do as the holiday season approaches. Get everything wrapped and stored in your secret hiding place well ahead of time to ensure a stress free Christmas, one less thing to worry about and do.

Benefit from Seasonal Sales
