Start Christmas Shopping Early and Take Advantage of End of Season Sales

Tips For Finding Perfect Christmas Gifts – Rescue the Reason of the Season

By Catherine Bee

How to choose a christmas giftChristmas should be a time of joy and fun… yet many of us get so stressed out during the season. Part of that stress is due to gift shopping… and trying to find the best suited gift for those on your list — year after year.

It’s enough for some of us to just stay home and get slogged on egg nog. And likely–some of us do!

Avoidance becomes the watchword, and Ornament Saleyet, it needn’t really be that difficult. Finding the perfect Christmas gift for your ‘people’ could turn into a fun project with rewards that last all year! This simple act is an important one to do well as it can spark rewards far greater than the gift we give.

Here are some tips to help you become “The” Cool Gift Giver of the Year!

Finding cool Xmas presents requires a gift that leaves others wishing they were your giftee. The key is to find something that excites interest in others and elicits that ‘wow’ factor.

Say what?!… you gasp! It’s hard enough to find something ‘normal’ let alone a Christmas present with extra pizzazz that will make others drool… ! Your mind wanders to the fruitcake and re-gifting process for comfort…

Whoa Rudolph! No need to go there. With just a little time and a little effort from your heart, you can become the Gift Giver of the Century. It just takes a few moments of engagement.

Just take a breath and take the first ‘problem gift’ on your list… and think a bit about what that person likes to do. We usually give up without much fight because we think we don’t know anything about them. You likely know them better than you think you do.

What do you chat about when you get together?

Do their eyes light up when a certain topic is mentioned? Do they have pictures or objects in their home… or if a work colleague… on their desk that give clues?

What have they talked about repeatedly with gusto?

  • Are they politically oriented?
  • Love to travel?
  • Do they have a dog, a cat or a gerbil… or something more exotic?
  • What do they read?
  • Do they listen to music, Visit art museums for fun?
  • How about hobbies?
  • Do they bowl or dance? Hike or mountain climb?
  • Do they paint, knit or collect rocks?
  • Do they love autos or collecting miniature objects?
  • Are they active or sedentary?

And the list goes on. You can think about what you DO know about the person on your list… and things will start to look brighter.

If they love to cook, there are any number of handy new gadgets every year that could make the whole process for them even more delightful. Even a unique or well-designed cookbook could be just the ticket. Or what about putting together a gift basket of some gourmet treats so they can enjoy them without cooking… and dream about re-creating the recipe themselves? Or include the recipe you’ve managed to find…

The car and motorcycle buff will always go for special items that help them clean and shine the ‘apples’ of their eyes. The traveler would surely enjoy a novel carry-on bag, a basket filled with sample travel items such as soap, shampoo, mini toothpaste and brush, hand wipes, money belts or re-usable bottles for instance. Light, easy to pack, healthy travel snacks to take along would also be welcome. Books on the destination of their dreams could also bring them a step closer to fulfilling their desire. Good maps of the region can always be counted on to be appreciated.

Don’t forget the gardeners. Think hand tools, gloves or kneepads and organic fertilizers and sprays for gardening. Good garden guides for the area of their passion, be it organic, hydroponics, vegetables, landscaping, roses or other areas, will hold their hand and guide them to success for a lifetime.

Magazine subscriptions on the theme or subject of their interest can be a big hit as well. Not many people think to do that. That arm-chair archeologist or at home do-it-yourselfer would delight in a magazine subscription that they might not have splurged on for themselves. But what a treat to receive the ‘luxury’ they denied themselves — from you! You’ll be remembered! The hobbyist will appreciate the newest trend gadget or needed supplies to enjoy the pastime of their heart’s desire.

And pet lovers… well… you hit the jackpot there! Special toys, foods, supplies or accessories for their pet will win their hearts in no time. Or consider a t-shirt, sweatshirt, furniture throw, mousepad, calendar, stationary, iPhone or eye-glass case – or similar- for the human counterpart with a photo of their favorite domestic heart throb or a pet-oriented theme. You’ll have a winner! And a custom, made-by-you touch to boot!

Take some pictures of their special furry friends and make a nice collage in a unique photo frame you can purchase inexpensively at bargain stores. Or go for broke with a custom made frame you can order online as well.

And think about lessons for the activity of their interest or even throw in a gift certificate in a gift basket made custom with some special items you choose. These always have a ‘thrill’ factor, don’t take a lot of time, but appear to. They show you gave some genuine thought to the task… and that could be the greatest gift of all to anyone.

After all, the old phrase… “it’s the thought that counts”… takes on true meaning. The concept of ‘I’m thinking of you’ in Christmas gifting shows love, respect or affection in honor of the gift of Christmas. The gift that such a gesture bestows to relationships colors them for the better, and mutual bonds grow as a result of taking a bit of time to care enough to find a gift that will delight your recipient.

Year after year those bonds strengthen, all due to that little bit of time given to actually come to ‘know’ a person better. Each year, your observations will be more rich, you’ll pay more attention to what makes another happy and it will be more like an adventure of discovery.

The result is a gift to both… and all those connected to both of you… that truly keeps on blessing. And our World needs more of such… and Love in every form. Our small contributions via a small but special thought from the heart – discerned from listening, observing and caring – can help make the world a truly better, happier place.

Improved relationships lighten our burdens, bring smiles and make the world a brighter place to be. And that is a gift that keeps paying forward.

Create your own Personalized Ceramic Christmas Ornaments for $6 !! Sale

Create Your Own Christmas Ornaments for $6

I am feeling very special today peeps. I have a  Christmas Coupon for you that is not widely available. It is exclusive to affiliates of Zazzle and I am delighted to be able to share this really fab offer with you.

The offer allows you to create your own personalized ceramic ornaments. You can add photos, text, change the color and shape of the ornament and more. They are available for just $6 !!

I bought and customized one of these ceramic Christmas ornaments myself very recently and popped a cartoon on one side with my kids names and the year and their photos on the other side. It cost me more than TWICE the price that I am able to offer these to you now so I will definitely be ordering more and you should too!

Personalized Christmas ornaments don’t just make great decorations for your Xmas tree, they are great keepsakes and gifts. Grandparents will love personalized ornaments that feature their grandchildren for example. They are a superb way to mark a new baby’s first Christmas. They are ideal as wedding gifts for a couple getting married during the Christmas season and so on. You can also create your own wedding anniversary keepsake gifts for those celebrating around this time.

In my case I like the idea of have a family photo taken each year and having it made into a dated ornament that will be passed on through the generations. Yes folks I am already thinking about grandchildren! I had better not share that thought will my kids (still very young!). Sadly this sale won’t be around after the 11th of November so I better crack on with some ‘future planning’ now – re the customizable Christmas Ornament that is, not grandkids. 🙂

Note: This special offer applies to BLANK ceramic ornament templates that allow you to create your own magical keepsake gift by adding your own images and text.

Pre-designed ornaments are not included in this special offer. I have though added some pre-designed ornaments below to show you what you can do with your blank ornament template.

Customizable Shoes are trending – Unique Christmas Gift Ideas for Trendsetters

customizable shoes re hitops christmasMy trend antennae have been twitching and something tells me that customizable shoes are going to be BIG this Christmas Season and next year.

Vans and Adidas both have customizable shoes and trainers where you can add your own color combinations. I’m not sure if you can add your own designs though like you can with Zazzle and add text and what not.

That’s the beauty of Zazzle – so many more customization options. They have teamed up with ZIPZ, a customizable shoe manufacturer
and Zazzle Designers do not disappoint, they’ve welcomed the new customizable shoes and already thousands of unique designs are being featured.Christmas Shoes

With so many awesome customizable shoe designs to choose from, I am going to home in on Customizable Christmas Shoes.

Who wears Christmas Shoes you may ask? Well .. many of us have a Christmas Sweater (or two), I myself have Christmas Leggings (Penguins, thanks for asking) and I imagine extroverts who enjoy being ‘different’ will love the idea of seasonal footwear with a design to match the season. Winter shoes can be so dull, wonderful to liven them up with a Christmas theme.

Christmas Shoes by Cheryl Paton —>

Without further ado – here are some of my own Christmas themed customizable shoes.

I have three pairs of Christmas Shoes so farm they are customizable ZIPZ  high tops and there are matching tank tops! I have created a Kawaii Christmas Doodle patterns featuring kawaii cute Xmas cartoon characters. Very fun for ans of Kawaii and streetstyle fashions.

And now for some wonderful Xmas themed customizable shoes by other designers – Page down to view more awesome customized shoes from talented designers in comments.

TEN Reasons to start your Christmas Shopping Early!

What could possibly persuade you to start Christmas shopping now?

I 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!Christmas Postage

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.

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.

Merry Christmas 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.

Perhaps less important as a reason for shopping early is that itUgly Sweater Party Invitations 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.

Is that ten reasons? I don’t know … the BEST top ten reasons for shopping early this Christmas are below!!

Ten awesome Zazzle Sales that end around 12th-13th October 2015.

All the Christmas gifts and decorations from zazzle can be customized and personalized. They make great unique gifts that will be treasured and kept this holiday season. Giving a custom gift is a surefire way to ensure YOUR present doesn’t end up in the trash or re-gifted the following year.

If you order your customised gift early, you can be sure it will not arrive after Christmas or worse get lost in that chaotic Christmas post. Give yourself peace of mind and order your holiday gifts early, giving time for the personalised gift to arrive. Zazzle also have a solid money back quality assurance guarantee, so no worries re those quality checks.

Meanwhile I will posting lots of great Christmas gift ideas for him, her, them and even the family pets in the coming days and weeks. If you would like some ideas drop me a line via comments below.

Ugly Sweater Party ideas , supplies and invitations

.

Ugly sweater parties are pretty trendy at Christmas now. The sweater your great aunt knitted you with love all those years ago can be hauled out of the attic and do a happy dance! Finally it has a chance to shine!

I personally have always liked Xmas themed sweaters (in the UK we call them jumpers) and other clothing items. I am for example the proud owner of some Christmas penguin leggings! Much to my kids dismay I should add.

So you’re having an Ugly Sweater party, awesome 🙂

The guests wear their ‘worst’ Christmas sweater ever and at some point during the Ugly Christmas Sweaterparty you have an ‘ugly sweater contest’. This is probably the only pageant where the ‘ugliest’ gets a prize. To host your ugly sweater party you will need:

Ugly Sweater party themed invitations. Zazzle have wonderful ugly sweater party invites that you can customize online. Lots of these are featured here.

Prizes or awards for the worst Christmas sweater – the ugliest. These awards or prizes can be in the form of a button with a 1st, 2nd, 3rd place noted on it. You can see some of these below.

Other than the above you can decorate your party room, eat drink and be merry exactly as you would for any other Christmas Party. The Ugly sweater party is also great for end of year work doos. Featured below are ugly sweater party supplies, ugly sweaters (incase you don’t have a great aunt to knit for you) ugly sweater party invitations and a whole lot of other Christmas party goodies.

Please please please do forward some photos of your ugly sweater. You can send them to me via creativeblogger@aol.com.
