4-steps-to-less-stress-christmas-shopping

I am excited that I got to team up with Beauty Encounter to share more about shopping online this season and my four steps to Less Stress Christmas Shopping.

Step 1: Say No to the Fight

This year I bought almost everything for Christmas online. I enjoy shopping but not during the Holiday Season. You have to fight the traffic, fight the parking, fight the crowds, fight with your kids to behave in long lines and then you find out that the item you wanted is no longer available. So I decided to say no to the fighting this year. I’m doing all my shopping online.

Step 2: Evaluate Your List

The next step is really important, simplify your shopping list. Really evaluate who is on your list. But also make a plan around that list.

Step 3: Pick a Shopping Theme

Every year I do a theme and I buy everyone the same thing only in different variations. You can do one item for each person or you can make baskets with a few small items.

Step 4: Buy Everything in One Place

One of the great things about having a theme for the year is that you can shop in one place! And with shopping online that means picking one website and buying everything there. That way you can save on shipping and everything should come in one box!

Here are some of my ideas from Beauty Encounter:

For Men, The Best Shave Ever:

Hint: Need to cut cost? Just purchase the aftershave, you can get a different scent for each guy.

For Women, Quick & Easy Bath Sets:

Hint: Will your friends unwrap their gifts in front of each other? No? Then just buy the same item for them all.
