Delays Ahead

Some retailers have reported slower than usual delivery times as a result of safety precautions put in place to slow the spread of coronavirus. So, it is definitely a good idea to get on the case with your Christmas shopping – and the sooner, the better.

But worry not if an order doesn’t arrive in time for the big day. Simply print out a piccie and pop it in a card, and you’ll be good to go.


Get Organised

We all know that Santa keeps it all together with the aid of his carefully collated list, so why not do the same? Make sure you don’t forget anyone’s gift on the big day by noting it all down. Scrawl it down on a piece of paper, set up an excel spreadsheet, or download one of the apps made to help you stay on top of your Christmas gifting.

We love Giftster for gathering wishlists and Santa’s Bag for creating lists and budgeting.


Be strategic

Don’t just pop into a store or jump online and grab whatever takes your fancy. Do your homework. See what’s on offer, take a look at your list, spot a few things that might make great presents for your nearest and dearest, then pounce.

The often stressful task of gift shopping instantly becomes much more fun when you approach it with purpose and a plan. And once you’ve gotten everything on your list crossed off, you can settle back with a mince pie or two and start to get into the festive spirit.


Suss out socials

If you’re a bit stuck on what to get someone, have a nose around their social media profiles for a few ideas. You can get an idea of what they’re into – be it clothes, books, food, music – and then you’ll have more of an idea of what they might like.
