Finding the perfect Christmas present for various people in your life is exciting but can become a stressful experience if you’re not well-prepared. To make it an effortless, enjoyable and memorable experience, read on!
Make a list and check it twice: In other words, get organized! Make a list of people you need to get presents for, the budget and possible presents for each person, and a list of shops where you might get the presents.
Hit the shops! With this list in hand. If you go to a mall, great; if you choose to raasta shop or go high street, decide to go to a places where stores are in close proximity so you don’t spend all day travelling.
Go store by store: See if you find anything interesting, if yes, consider it; if no, move on. Check out the sales too, as you might find something truly amazing.
Avoid indecision and unnecessary drama: Finding the perfect present is difficult, no doubt! But don’t make it stressful for yourself by being indecisive. Choose a minimum threshold of standard- the present needs to be “good enough”- beyond this, if you find something truly awesome, great. If not, don’t torture yourself with buyer’s remorse because you bought something you thought was nice, and found something even better. The point of getting organized to avoid such situations, but it happens to the best of us.
Wrapping! So much of the joy of getting a present lies in the mystery and anticipation of what it is. Thoughtful wrapping can make the occasion as special and memorable as the present itself. Check out our wrapping guide for more ideas!
