The Countdown Is On: Last-Minute Holiday Shopping Tips

lastminuteshopping_mainWe’re oh so close to the big day! Are your gifts wrapped and under the Christmas tree? Or are you still scrambling for ideas? Have no fear: Your friends at FreeShipping.com are here to help. We’ve put together some helpful tips to assist you in finishing up your last-minute holiday shopping.

3 Strategies to Wrap Up Your Christmas Shopping List

  1. Give a gift that lasts all year long. Looking for an easy gift idea? Consider gifts that keep on giving, like magazine subscriptions, potted plants, and gift-of-the-month clubs. These gifts will remind recipients of your thoughtfulness all year long.
  2. Make a gift basket. One of my go-to gift-giving tips is to put together your own custom gift baskets. It’s easier than you think and can be easily customized to the recipient. You can get creative with the basket or container. Some potential ideas include a spa basket, cooking basket, or car wash basket.
  3. lastminuteshopping_bakedgoodsGive the gift of good taste. If you’re really running late, why not consider a gift made with love? Food can be an excellent present, especially for foodies or anyone whose heart is in their stomach. Baked goods make sweet gifts, including cakes, cookies, and pastries. For those lacking a sweet tooth, consider a casserole, soup, or home canned specialties.
