    Holiday Shopping Tips

     

    1. Make a List -- and Check it Twice

    The first thing you'll want to do before you start your holiday shopping is to make a list of all the people you would like to buys Christmas gifts this year. If you have ideas about items that you would like to purchase and an estimated price. If you love creating spreadsheets, this task can be right up your alley. No only can you keep track of who you need to buy for and what you have purchased, you can also keep track of packages you need to mail and all kinds of other things.

     

    2. Create a Budget

     

    After you have your holiday shopping list together figure out an overall budget. As much as possible try to set aside money throughout the year so you won't be paying for your Christmas gifts all the way until next Christmas. After you come up with an overall budget, you can assign a certain amount to each person on your list .The BEST idea is to set aside the money for Christmas gifts aside into a separate account that you can access when you set out to go shopping.

     

    3. Shop Sales and Look for Coupon Codes

  • Personalized Pearls

    There are two gift trends that I'm seeing a lot of this holiday season: pearl jewelry and personalized gifts.  That's why I was so excited when I saw that we'll be carrying a combination of the two!

    For under $30, check out the personalized pearl bracelets available below.  Personalized gifts seem incredibly "personal" even when you have no clue what to get the gift recipient.  And classic pearls will always be in style, so you know that she'll wear these bracelets for many years.

    And if you are one of the lucky few that have already begun your Christmas shopping this year - congrats!  There are fewer days between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, which means that the stores are going to be extra crowded.  As for the rest of us, we'd better get started!  Happy shopping!
