Christmas Shopping Sorted

If you’re not organised Christmas gift shopping can be a nightmare. It’s useful to hit the shops with a thorough list and action plan. 

Your action plan should look something like this:

  1. Decide on two gift ideas for each family member or friend who you are purchasing for – write these down. 

  2. Allocate yourself a full day to Christmas shop. It’s ideal to hit the shops alone and without the kids, to give your full attention to the task at hand. 

  3. Whilst shopping try and keep this rule in mine - if you cannot find your first gift idea in three stores move onto the next item. Time is precious. 

  4. Once home wrap your gifts, attach a gift tag or card and store in a safe location ready for Christmas day. 


Finding ideas for gifts can be difficult, but never fear, we’ve compiled a list of gift suggestions to make the process a tad easier.
