Toddy Holiday Shopping Survival Guide

Toddy Holiday Shopping Survival Guide

As much as I do not want to believe it but the holiday shopping season has started, and we have not even stuffed out face with turkey and pumpkin pie yet. Stressing out about what to give to who and setting a budget is an enormous task during this time of the year.

Stressed yet? Don't be! We have some pointers that may help you stay sane during this holiday season.

Get Organized
Jot down everyone you need to buy a gift for and I am talking everyone from your closest family member to the co-worker that gets you an unexpected gift every year. Brainstorm and jot down ideas for of what to give each person on your list and how much you want to spend. This will help keep you on budget.

Procrastination is Not a Virtue
Waiting till' after Thanksgiving or even worse waiting till' last minute to buy holiday gifts is not recommended. As you are browsing Toddy Gear's Holiday collection or your favorite online outlet, keep an eye out on for year round items that may be great for your family, friends or coworkers. You are most likely to find something when you are not looking for it. The closer you get to the Holidays the more thankful you will be that you have already crossed some people of your gift giving list.

HUGE Savings!
November brings HUGE savings from your favorite stores and online shops. Yes, Black Friday and Cyber Monday! Savings from 40% to 80% may be found on these days. If you are brave and willing to battle Black Friday retail crowds, it is highly recommended that you have a list of exactly what you are going to buy at each store you are visiting. Beware that they may be out of stock on what you are looking for by the time you get there. Now, my favorite is Cyber Monday. I do not even have to leave the house to get what I want, and it gets delivered to my door while I enjoy the saving. Got to love it! Waiting for these big savings days has its plusses and minuses. The plusses include the significant savings. The minuses are by the time you start shopping the items you are looking for may no longer be available.

Happy wishes and shopping to everyone for theis holiday season!
