[Infographic] Last Minute Shopping Tips
Are you one to procrastinate?
Especially when it comes to Holiday Gift Shopping?
Don’t worry, you aren’t the only one.
We’ve created a list of Last Minute Holiday Shopping Tips just for you!
1. Make A List
Know what you want or need to get for each person before you go. Stick to your list.
Don’t stray, Don’t panic.
2. Check the Stock
Call ahead or check the stock online before heading to the store. There’s nothing more frustrating than getting there, only to find out they don’t actually have what you want.
3. Take Advantage of Overnight Shipping
Just don’t forget to check shipping deadlines and processing times. It can vary by retailer and carrier!
4. Don’t Forget Ship-To-Store
Order online and have your purchase shipped to the store for pick up. Grab some wrapping paper while you’re at it.
5. Go for an E-Gift
Purchase gift cards, subscription boxes, experiences, or other similar items. Many credit card companies will allow you to exchange points for gift cards. Take advantage!
6. Shop Till You Drop
Many malls and stores extend their hours for the holiday season. Make good use of the extra time!
7. You Can Always DIY
Frame a photo, make cookies, create hot chocolate kits; the ideas are endless!
8. Wait it Out
If there are folks that you won’t see until after Christmas Day, wait to purchase their gift until after the holiday. You’ll probably save money with all the post-holiday sales anyways.
