There is nothing more satisfying and pleasurable than buying good Christmas gifts for your loved ones. I am sure you’ll definitely like all the options mentioned above. But, considering the current COVID-19 situation, I would also like to share some tips that may be helpful to decide Christmas gifts for your dear ones and help you to save money.
Tips to follow while purchasing gifts during a pandemic
Today, many of us are buying gifts online instead of visiting stores, so that we can avoid crowded places and maintain social distancing. Many of us have also decided not to buy gifts for their friends and family in person. This is caused by massive unemployment and a significant loss of jobs across the world.
During this difficult time, you might need to keep your emotions in control and spend as low as possible. You should buy cheap, budget-friendly gift items for your loved ones and save a lot from your shopping budget to pay off your debts.
Due to the current financial hardships, you might have incurred a significant amount of debt to pay your household expenses and other costs. To get out of that debt burden, you may need to consolidate your debts or choose the debt settlement option. To work with any one of these options, you will need a certain amount to pay towards the debt accounts every month. So, if you are able to save money from your Christmas shopping budget, you may easily put that money towards getting out of your debts!
But that doesn't mean people have to avoid this holiday and also forget about gift-giving and meetups with families and friends. With the proper safety measures and some useful tips, you may still enjoy gift-giving and holiday shopping in this COVID-19 situation.
1. Sign up for sale alerts to get the best deals
Due to the pandemic situation, many people have lost their jobs. So, saving money would be your prime concern while buying good Christmas gifts this holiday season. As a shopper, you may find good deals on kitchen appliances, home decor, furniture, and many more. To grab such deals you may need to set up a sale alert from different stores. For example - popular retailers such as Target will inform you about great deals via notifications and help you to stay on top of your Christmas budget too.
2. Select a gift which is needed right now
First of all, select the person for whom you want to buy a gift. Considering that person’s likeness and need you should decide what to buy. People are spending a lot of time in their homes so it won’t be harsh if you ask that person what he/she wants right now. Your gift should be unique and most importantly, useful. This way you may also be able to adjust your household budget for the holidays.
3. Shop mindfully and choose local stores
If you have decided to buy gifts from physical stores, then you should consider local small businesses, stores, shops dealing with handmade products, to buy gifts from. This way you may support small businesses in your locality and boost the economy. It's another way of making your gift feel special and personal.
4. Look out for extended Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales
Another good way to save money while shopping this holiday was the Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2020 sale. Since the days have gone, you might have missed the opportunity to get the most out of those Black friday and Cyber Monday deals. But don’t worry. You may still look for some extended Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals offered by few retailers. Check online as well as in your neighborhood stores. You never know how much you may save from this last minute shopping as well as get the best gifts for your loved ones.
5. Select stores that offer free returns
While choosing Christmas gifts from online and local stores, you must know about the terms and conditions applied to every product. You may need to exchange or return a particular item due to various reasons. Shopping for others might become a challenge for you, and sometimes can be expensive if you buy wrong items. For example - you might give your brother a SAMSUNG MP3 player which he already owns since last year. So, you might have to return that item and buy a new one for him. If the store gives you a prompt, free online return it will be a great thing. If it doesn't, then your money will be wasted.
6. Create homemade Christmas gifts and save more
Last but not the least, nothing is more unique and amazing than homemade Christmas gifts, which you make on your own and give your dear ones. Practically homemade items can be divided into two segments:
Homemade delicacies are great to give during Christmas eve. You can make homemade chocolates, fudge, Christmas cookies, truffles, and many more items. You may also bake gingerbread, shortbread, carrot pineapple sweet bread, etc., and use Christmas gift wrap before sending them to your loved ones.
You may create Christmas crafts and send them to your friends as Christmas gifts. There are multiple options available to create, such as Christmas cutout candle, embroidery hoop ornament, reindeer gift card holder, cross-stitch socks, filled glass ornament, and many more.
Christmas is the time of celebration, for which we wait from the very beginning of the year. No matter what financial or social situation arises, this gift-giving holiday season should be celebrated with unique gifts and happiness. Merry Christmas!
