With just a few days left until Christmas, you don’t have to brave the lines at the mall or pay ridiculous shipping prices for gifts online, just follow these last-minute shopping tips instead.
Gasp! Almost everyone re-gifts at one time or another. The easiest items to re-gift are things like wine, candles and soaps. Just make sure you don’t leave the previous gift tag on the box!
You can skip the checkout line by choosing the ship-to-store option online. Ship-to-store is usually free and allows you to pick up at the customer service desk instead of waiting in line.
Order magazine subscriptions
You can get discounted deals on magazine subscriptions from BestDealMagazines.com and other sites. Be sure you know that the recipient is really interested in the mag before you order.
Buy gift cards
People love gift cards — as long as they are from a store the receiver likes. Stick with Amazon.com, major department stores or grocery store gift cards rather than obscure shops. Gift cards and gift certificates can be ordered online, then printed, emailed or mailed to the recipient.
Handmade gifts are a special way to show someone your love at Christmas time. Whether you bake cookies, paint a canvas or create a Christmas ornament, as long as it’s from your heart, it will be appreciated.
