Tomorrow is Christmas eve, so exciting! I already bought my presents, but here are some tips for the people who didn’t. We all know them; they all push it to the end, but then get stressed out when everything is sold out..
1. Sold out? Try buying it online. If that doesn’t work, try your social network. Maybe some of your Facebook friends owns the book your desperately looking for, and wants to sell it to you.
2. Look on pinterest for DIY things. Maybe a calender? Or a bookmark?
3. Trade some things with friends. If you have a lot of dvd’s you already know that you’re never gonna watch, try to trade them. Maybe you can give your new dvd to a friend, and watch them together. Also buy popcorn and coke (or wine) and call it a movie night!
4. Buy food. Nobody ever hated food. I never know what I should give to my grandma. So pretty much every time I and up buying her chocolates. She always eats them straight away.
5. I could say; buy it one time, but that’s to late now. You can make a list for next year. I always make a list with things I think this person may like. And then when I see it on sale I buy it. This can be in August but also in April. That way you’ll never be without a present in December.
6. Create a present using your skill. Can you play the piano? Or write beautiful poems? Play a piece especially for someone, or write something about him/her.
My coupon for my dad to drink coffee and eat some pie with me.
7. If your present really can’t be delivered or bought; give something for after the holidays. Make a coupon for a lunch, or buy a ticket for a concert.
8. If you’re initial present can’t be bought, then buy something practical. This is a good idea because the things we need cost money, and it isn’t fun buying them. If you get them you can be certain it’s something that you’re gonna use,and it saves you money! I love it when my mum buys me pretty underwear or beautiful sheets.
I hope you can use my tips to make an amazing Christmas with lots of good well-thought-not-bought-at-the-last-minute- presents.
