Some shopping tips this christmas season...Do you have one?

Christmas is fast approaching. I know it is hard to think of something to give to a particular person. My tips are first plan ahead of time and make a budget for those you would like to give gifts for, find out what their interests or what they want, try to have it deliver at their doorsteps, if still you do not have ample time for shopping and you are not sure what to buy in particular then you can opt for a gift card or gift certificate instead. It might be less meaningful to them with those gift cards but at least they can buy what they think are useful than giving something that is of no use to them.

I do have a few tips but it is a bit late in the year to put them to go use now. I like to start making my list as early as september. I list in one collumn everyone that I have to shop for and then next to their name I put what I want to get them. I will usualy start my shopping by the last week of september, that way I can shop in shifts finishing my list by the first week of december before it get too corwded. Also that way I am not spending so much money at one time. I also like to get online and see who has what the cheapest and that is where I go, saving time not having to drive around from store to store.

Thanks for the input...Shopping by September is a great idea since when we hear the month starting with "ber", that means Christmas is near right? At least shopping as early as possible would take light on your budget as well as the time spend for shopping. And yeah it really gives us great savings shopping online without the hassle of window shop or jump around stores.
