Take the stress out of Christmas gifting with our tips

Did someone say Christmas? Yes, you heard right, the festive season is just around the corner!

While some are already counting down the days, others will be dreading all the planning that comes with Christmas. Today’s busy lifestyle can mean that buying gifts for your loved ones is yet another pull on your precious time.

This year, why not resolve to make Christmas gifting a pleasure? We show you how with our tips to get organised, freeing you up to enjoy everything about the festive season when it comes around.

Make a to-do list

If you’re working on a big project, it starts with a to-do list and your approach to Christmas should be no exception.

Treat your Christmas planning just like a work assignment, so draw up a spreadsheet and jot down everything you need to do before 25 December. Set deadlines and get satisfaction from ticking them off as you fulfil them.

Set a budget

One of the most stressful things about Christmas is the expense. Spending money that you can’t afford can sour the vibe around this special time, so this year, resolve to take charge of your finances.

Set a budget for everything you need to spend money on at Christmas. For gifts, break down the budget even further by recipient. Put aside a set amount every month so that you know you’re spending within your means.

Start early

It’s never too soon to start your seasonal shopping. Buying Christmas gifts early is the way to go if you want to avoid last-minute panic, which can also mean you end up blowing your budget.

Try buying Christmas gifts throughout the year, as and when you see something suitable. Once the festive season comes ’round, you’ll be glad to rediscover your secret gift stash!

Choose customised gift boxes

Finding suitable gifts for your nearest and dearest can be a nightmare if you just stick to the same old high street shops. This year, why not try personalised gift boxes?

They’re the ideal solution if you want an original present that you won’t find anywhere else. Pick out some treats that reflect your loved one’s taste and combine them in a beautiful little package. And you can have your gift box sent directly to your friend or family member, making the whole process fun and super efficient too!

Go online

Buying Christmas gifts online is a great idea when you’re pushed for time. Set aside half a day, grab a coffee and enjoy browsing for presents without the hassle of beating your way through crowds.

You’ll also find way more options online than you will in the shops and can search for quirky and unusual gifts for those hard-to-buy-for loved ones.
