Christmas Gifts Advice
by: Chris Unsworth
Yes its that time of year again. So what's your plan this
year? Where you just going to leave it to the last minute
again and compete with the rest of the country for the
last few items on the shelves come Christmas Eve? I know
that with this little guide you can help save yourself
from a lot of stress this Christmas so take a few minutes
to read on.
1) Its always best to make a start with a list of people
you want to buy presents for. Do not feel pressured into
buying big gifts for everyone. As the old saying goes
'its the thought that counts' so you can just buy small
gifts for some people. Lots of family members come to
an agreement prior to Christmas not to exchange gifts.
If money is maybe a bit tight for you this year then maybe
you should consider this option.
2) Work out your budget. How much do you want to spend
in total this Christmas on gifts. Don't forget things
like wrapping paper and cards. Take that figure and divide
it into amounts you'd like to spend on each person on
3) Be strict with your budget! I've made this a separate
point as its so easy to get carried away when your in
the shops and spend much more than you intended on your
Christmas presents. I know as I've been there myself.
4) To make your Christmas gifts a success its always best
to ask the main people you will be spending money on what
they would actually like. Likewise make a list of things
you would like to receive so you can give people options
of things to buy you.
5) Thanks to the advent of the internet you can now buy
many of your Christmas presents online. This can save
time, effort and money. Certain gifts you might not find
on the internet, but its always a good starting point.
6) Now the hardest bit. Going to the shops. Some people
may enjoy this, many find the Christmas shopping experience
a nightmare. Going early is the keyword. If you don't
manage to go earlier in the year than December then at
least go early in the morning. You'll beat the main crowds
if you can be in the shops when they open then home for
So all that's left now is just to wrap those gifts and
enjoy Christmas. Oh and one last tip. If you can get to
the shops in the January sales this is a great time to
buy everything for next Christmas.
