LUXURY CHRISTMAS GIFT SHOPPING MADE EASY
Christmas is only two months away so it is about time you started thinking about the luxury Christmas gifts you are going to buy for your loved ones. When it comes to expensive Christmas gifts, the earlier you start shopping, the better and it will work in your favour if you have some kind of plan in place in order to make your present shopping experience more effective.
Before you set out to start your luxury Christmas gift
shopping, you need to think about who you are buying for. Most people will buy for family and close friends, but you may also want to buy for your co-workers, the lady who walks your dog, your football friends, and your child's teacher! Decide on which people you are comfortable buying a present for and then make a list.
Set yourself some kind of budget. When it comes to family, we know that luxury items for men and women can sometimes bust the budget, so keep in mind a general idea of how much you want to spend on each person. You probably want to spend more on your close family than you do on your dog walker, for example.
Once you have listed the people you are going to buy for and have a rough idea of your budget, think about what sort of gift they might like. Brainstorm some ideas based on their likes and dislikes, and write these down on your list. Keep your list with you, perhaps tucked away in your wallet and add to it when you think of an idea or after you have chatted to the person and they have mentioned something they would like.
Lots of people put off Christmas shopping and end up dashing about at the last minute. Treat it like any other project and give it a timeline, goals and solid dates. For instance, you could decide that your Christmas shopping will be done by December 20th and that you are going to put aside one evening a week to accomplish this task. Leave yourself some wiggle room in case something more important comes up, but don't keep making excuses.
Keep Track of What You Have Bought
Don't forget what you have bought for who, or even worse, lose your presents! Designate a specific area in your home for presents, such as your loft or a space in your wardrobe. Write the name of the designated receiver on a removable sticker and place it on the item before you store it away. Then, cross their name off the list of presents to buy before you forget!
