I love the holidays. I look forward to November 1st so I might put up my tree, lights, and sprinkle in Christmas music. As for shopping, I am not a shopper. I attempt to do as much shopping online as I can. For other items, I make a list and quickly shop for only the items on it. I do not browse. I do not walk hours in the mall enjoying the sounds, smells, crowds, and displays. I love gift-giving just not the procuring of said gifts.
I learned years ago, that shopping early is costly for me. Although I claim to have my shopping done, I tend to add more items here and there as I find them. Thus, my family receives more gifts than they should. I tend to shop the first half of December but I create a shopping list starting in January to keep track of my gift ideas.
Whatever type of shopper you are, I wish you luck as you seek to secure your gifts.
A book exists for everyone. When searching for a book as a gift, consider what you enjoy reading and share a good book you’ve read. Think of the hobbies, travels, and interests your family/friend might enjoy and purchase a book on one of those topics. Check out their social media pages for ideas, too. See if they are a member of Goodreads. If so, genres and books they enjoy will be posted there. Coffee table books are also a great gift idea.
I currently have 5 books on sale for 99¢ for the holidays. Download a book or 5 for yourself and remember Amazon allows you to send eBooks as gifts. It’s easy and a great way to shop for others on your list.
