Christmas shopping: 4 tips to rest easy during the Holidays.

The calendar now says 1st of December and the Holly Jolly Christmas month has begun! Usually I would be horribly unprepared for it. It ALWAYS seems to sneak up on me (though the many lights and decorations should probably have been my hint in early November.) However this year I, for once, seem to have gotten the jump on good ol’ December. My Christmas shopping is almost complete and the house is beginning to look and feel like the Christmas i so desperately crave. This didn’t happen over night though, it took lots of planning and countless of hours of work. So here’s 4 tips for getting through the stressful Christmas shopping!

Wishlists makes everything easier!

If you know what people want it’s much easier to figure out what to get them. That goes for you too of course! So make yourself comfy and jot down some things you’ve been needing or are wishing for this Christmas. Make sure it’s affordable and tangible, not something outrageous like peace on earth! Ask your loved ones to do the same and exchange them during December, that way you have an easy starting point.

Categorizing is important!

Once you have figured out what to get, you need to start thinking of where to get them. Dividing your presents into easy shopping categories ex. Beauty, Fashion, Tech, etc. Is a good way to quickly get an overview of which places you need to visit for what you need.

Budgeting is necessary!

Budgeting, yuck! I hate that word! I have always been the kind of person who wants to give people exactly want they want no matter the cost! Sadly, life doesn’t work that way. We all have bills to pay and other adult things to take care of so budgeting is, of course, needed. Figuring out how many people you need to give gifts to and how much you can afford to spend on each one is essential for securing you don’t go broke during the Holidays.

Online shopping saves time!

One key thing i have found to have helped me tremendously this year has been online shopping. AMAZON has been my best friend during my holiday preparations and i have found a tonne of amazing gifts for even more amazing prices that way. It saved me so much time and hassle and the packages would come within a couple of days, with plenty of time to spare for wrapping. Plus scouring the web is a lot easier than running through multiple stores searching for the perfect present!

Those where my 4 tips for the seasonal shopping! Christmas can be stressful and finding the perfect present is always tough but hopefully you can now rest a little easier and enjoy the season!
Thank you so much for reading!

  1. Hey, I love your blog and YT channel. Quick Q: I recently started to get in to digital but I’m kinda struggling developing my own artstyle. Did you ever have a problem with this and do you have any tips and pointers? I put all my art on a art blog on Tumblr to keep track of progress and all that, and although I have some what improved, I’m not really that sure what I can do to feel more confident. Hope you have a good day, Happy Holidays! o(〃^▽^〃)o

  8. These are wonderful tips and definitely a good way to stay sane. I totally hate budgeting as much as you do and I wish I could people exactly what they wanted, but you’re right about it. It’s important!

  9. I definitely second these tips! It makes Christmas more of a breeze. I definitely would add though, make some time in the holidays for you to relax. The holidays are a busy and stressful time, self care can help a tonne when things get overwhelming, even if it’s stopping mid shop for a coffee! Amazing post as always and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas 💙
