Tips for Christmas Gift Giving
Create a Christmas budget.
Think about who all you are going to buy for this year. Make a list. Then, budget enough money for what you think you will need to spend for each person.
Don't forget about these people!
While remembering to buy gifts for your family may be easy, there may be others in your life that you want to buy a gift for and you end up forgetting each year, such as your:
- Nursing home worker
- Daycare worker
If you plan to mail your gifts, plan ahead.
Give yourself plenty of time. You don't want your present to end up arriving a week late. Before you choose to ship a gift, check with your mail carrier to see if it will most likely arrive on time.
If traveling with gifts, lighten your load.
You can easily lighten your load, when traveling, by getting gift cards instead of large gifts. Some people prefer gift cards. Then, you don't have to worry about airport security taking a long time to go through your bulky packages or gifts.
Gift Wrapping Tips
Do not wait until the last minute.
Save yourself the stress and wrap your presents as you buy them rather than waiting to the last minute.
Don't forget about leftover Christmas wrapping paper from last year.
Keep your Christmas gift wrapping supplies organized, so you know where to find it each year.
