As you prepare for the holiday season at our Kendall apartments, it’s time to start thinking about a strategy for gift giving. Avoid the stress and hassle of shopping for gifts with these helpful shopping tips.
#1 Make a Budget
Literally, value your relationships. Make a list of loved ones who you plan on purchasing a gift for this holiday season. Divide your total budget amongst the list and assign a price limit for each individual. If a present you want to buy exceeds your budget, search for a better price online. See if the store you’re wanting to purchase the gift from will price-match.
#2 Avoid Event-Style Sales
Studies have shown that there is not a huge difference in pricing between Black Friday/Cyber Monday and regular holiday sales. It’s likely that one-day promotions and doorbusters won’t save you a significant amount of money, and you will have to brave the crowds and long lines.
#3 Don’t Procrastinate
One way to blow your budget and create unnecessary stress is to wait until the last minute to buy your presents. You won’t have the time it takes to find the best deals. In the frenzy of shopping, it’s more likely that you will make impulse purchases.
#4 Consider DIY
DIY gifts are usually more affordable and adds a personal touch that may be lacking in a bought gift. Search the internet for tutorials. You may find that you can create a perfect present for a loved one for very little money. Review this list of DIY projects for some inspiration!
