Whether you’re a last minute shopper by nature or simply put it off because of the stress involved, we’re offering some simple tips you won’t want to miss.

First of all, relax and remember that this is a season of togetherness, not buy everything and lose your mind. You are cordially invited to give a beautiful gift, without the extra stress and without breaking the bank. Sound good?

So, without further ado, here you go.

Tips to Survive Last-Minute Shopping

Make The Gift: I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but there’s something special about making something for someone. Whether it’s a craft, memorabilia, or even baked goods, don’t underestimate the power of creating something special.

Shop Online: Avoid the stores altogether. Shop online for your family and friends’ wish list. Even better, make sure to sign up for the bonuses that include rebates and free shipping. Just make sure they have an honorable return policy.

Create Vouchers: Why not create or purchase coupons or vouchers? You can gift someone a series of neck rubs or foot rubs, babysitting, or dinner cooking. Serving someone else can be the perfect gift.

BONUS Gift Idea

Everyone has that person in their family that is overworked, spread too thin and could really use a break. That’s why we want to suggest a “Pamper Pack.”  You can even apply the tips from above to do so.

What’s more pampering than body relaxation and rejuvenation? Grab a box and put your best body products inside. Some ideas include an eye mask, some loose leaf tea, a coupon for a personalized foot rub and some Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist to turn any hot bath or shower into a total spa experience. All you need now is a basket or box to put it all together in. Anyone receiving this combination will shower you with hugs and gratitude.

From us to you, we hope that you have an incredible holiday season and all the magic that comes with it.
