If you need extra money, you can clean out your old, broken or unwanted gold, silver and platinum jewelry and turn it in for cash! That goes for your coins, too!
Create a Shopping Plan
The best way to simplify Christmas shopping is to start with a list of who you need to shop for and then work out a shopping plan for the gifts. When you have a list, it makes planning where you are going to buy the gifts and finding the best deals much easier. If you review deal sites, you can save on your gifts and streamline the entire gift giving process. If you use these Christmas gift tips, you can make Christmas shopping fast and easy while saving money. Taking the time to plan carefully can help you avoid forgetting someone on your list or buying too many presents.
Ship Straight to the Recipient
Another way you can save is to ship straight to recipient, instead of shipping to you, and then back out again. If you are shipping primarily to children, you may have an adult in the house wrap the presents for you. If you are traveling to the house for Christmas, you may request that the person hold the boxes unopened and you can wrap them when you arrive. There is the option to pay for wrapping on some sites, but it is up to you whether or not the cost is worth the wrapping. You may save by paying for the wrapping, over what you would pay to ship it twice. When choosing to buy online or at a store, you should consider the price of shipping into your price, because you may save money buying online and taking advantage of the free shipping.
Think About Bulk Options
Not every gift will fit into this category, but generally you do have a group or two where you can buy bulk gifts or assemble some sort of gift basket or cookie plate to give to coworkers or neighbors. You may want to combine with a group of friends and each bake a certain type of cookie and then assemble your plates together. It is easier to batch a really large batch of the same type of cookies or sweets, then it is do several smaller batches, and you will still end up with a variety. Similarly, you can buy in bulk together to assemble gift boxes or bags for your co-workers. This can save you money in the long run since buying in bulk makes the overall cost less expensive.
