Shopping in general can be pretty stressful. Shopping for clothes when you need them usually doesn't work out well since it always seems that nothing looks good or fits well. Shopping for gifts is similar since you're buying for the ones you love, and that can be stressful. Over the years I've learned how to deal with the stress of Christmas and most importantly I've learned how to conquer the dreaded task. First things first, make a list! As you may know I'm a big list lover. Making a list is important because you'll figure out where you need to go and what exactly you're going to buy. Think about what each person wants or needs, and there you go! Christmas gifts should be one of two things for me: 1. Personal or 2. Yummy!
Next up, scout out the sales. Christmas gift shopping shouldn't make you broke. You buy what you can, and when you can find good deals, you take them! Finding deals also means shopping online. You can get so many deals online, my favourite online shop is Indigo. Your order comes super fast and they have so many products to choose from at wonderful deals.
Finally, keep calm in the stores. Shop either in the morning or in the evening. You have a better chance of being alone in the stores which allows you to stay calm. Also, wear layers so you don't get too toasty in the really warm stores. No sweating is another way for you to stay calm.
Once you get all your gifts, you'll need to wrap them up. The hard task is done and you can turn on that Christmas music, make a warm drink, and wrap those gifts!
