This year is going to be different. You’re not going to wait until the last minute to get your holiday shopping done and you’re definitely not going to blow your budget, right? Same speech, just a new calendar year. But, this year, it could actually be true. Smart moves now = no regrets later!
Lifestyle expert, wife, mom and chief family shopper Summer Jackson shares the keys to keeping this holiday season from feeling overwhelming. For instance, have you ever skipped making the list and then found yourself rushing around in search of the perfect gift? No need to worry about that again!
“Create a list and don’t get overwhelmed with what you have to do,” said Jackson. “Don’t forget about those hostess gifts, because you never want to show up empty handed. I love the Vanilla Gift Card. You don’t have to stress out about what to get that person you want to get the perfect gift for. It’s so easy and you can personalize the gift card by dressing it up and putting the card in a mug with a cute arrangement.”
When it comes to the perfect gift, according to the National Retail Federation, gift cards are the most requested holiday gift each year. That’s because gift cards are easy to buy (and use), and their popularity as a gift continues to increase, allowing flexibility for the buyer and receiver. Even better, this year that card could be a gift that gives back to you!
