So you’ve left your shopping to the last minute, huh? As the herds of people at the mall will show you, you’re not alone.
They say failing to plan is planning to fail, and I’m 99% sure they were talking about shopping. Go in with a strategy, and tick that list off like ol’ saint Nick! Feel free to reference back to my tips and tricks post as well!
Here’s a roundup of my favourite finds for the loves in your life, which I hope will save you time for a little eggnog and chill.
The man of your life.
Remember this is the guy you love. He probably needs a lot of things, but just like you wouldn’t want him buying you a very functional gift card to your favourite store, get him something he wants.
I don’t know about you, but my parents are the hardest people on my list to shop for. They want for nothing, are incredibly generous with us, and it seems the sappy gifts of letters, framed pictures and personalized photobooks have been done a million times over.
This is the easiest category of gifting – if you can manage handing over the goods when it’s time!
Your nieces/nephews/friend’s kids/own kids.
Holy schamoly. If you’ve left the littles to the last minute, I’m questioning whether or not you have a heart. Or, maybe just need a job with a better work/life balance?
If you need other ideas for kids, pop into Toys “R” Us. If you still can’t find anything, I hope a gaggle of Whos find a way to make your heart grow three sizes one day with a simple song.
Merriest of Christmases to all of you! xx
