Get it done early!

To reduce your stress levels this Christmas, you should do your Christmas Shopping early! Doing your Christmas Shopping early is a lot better because if you leave it till the last minute, it can cause you to not find the things you need and create stress. Therefore I always recommend doing your Christmas Shopping early!

Another good reason for getting it done early is because it makes you feel better than you have achieved something, It makes you feel relieved that it’s one less thing off of your shoulder.

Plan your Christmas Shopping!

By planning I mean, writing a list for who you need to by for, ideas of what to get them, and even a budget for each person. If you have a list, it can help make things less difficult when shopping! You can also find templates on google if you search ‘Christmas gift lists.’

Online Christmas Shopping!

For me I prefer to do my Christmas shopping in real life, however for some this would be a lot easier! You are then able to search and find what you want, rather than shopping around the town. I love to shop on websites such as Pretty Little Thing, JD, Boohoo etc.

Saving Up before!

A great way to reduce stress when Christmas Shopping is to save up before! This could be a couple of months in advance, or even a year! I think a great way to save up before is to put a certain percentage of your wages into a pot every month or week until Christmas.

  1. I try to get mine done early but it’s not always that easy – especially now that I work from home. I used to work on a busy highstreet with loads of cool shops so would pop out on my lunch break!
    I am almoooost done, I can’t wait to get wrapping!


    1. I love being able to go out on busy high streets and getting the Christmas shopping done!

    1. Haha well done you!

  3. Christmas shopping can be so stressful- that’s why I often opt for online shopping these days, and visits to actual shops are reserved for a fun Christmas outing, to put less pressure on the trip! Thanks for sharing these tips x

  6. I agree with all of these! I always do mine early because I’m the type of person who just feels super anxious when things are not “crossed off my list” and I like to spend the rest of December making crafts, listening to Christmas music and watching Christmas movies and stuffing my face with chocolates and baked goods xo

    1. That sounds great! X
