Holiday Gift Tips

Bailey Arkell, News Reporter

Christmas time is back once more with its overwhelming pressure to find the perfect gifts for those you love. No matter who you pick your gifts for, here are some tips to make this holiday gift shopping spree successful and inexpensive.

Tip #1: Whenever considering what to buy as presents, deeply consider what your friend or relative would enjoy. Focus on what would be special to them instead of something you prefer. Ask yourself, what is their favorite color? What books, movies, or music do they like? What are their hobbies? These questions should give you an idea of what to buy. If you don’t know what to get them, look up some ideas on the internet to get inspiration.

Tip #2: Once you have found what you to believe is the perfect present, make sure the price is worth the gift. Don’t spend all your money on one present. Look for discounts to bring the price down in order to provide a meaningful gift without causing damage to your wallet.

Tip #3: Another option for those who can’t afford to buy a present or just think that buying a present is not the way to go, consider making a homemade gift. Also, remember that sometimes making something can be more meaningful in the end. You can come up with the present on your own or you can try to find an idea on the internet.

Tip #4: After buying or making the perfect Christmas gift, make sure you wrap it or stick it in a decorative bag. Leave a card letting that person know how much you love and appreciate them being in your life. By doing this you will fulfill your goal of giving an amazing gift that truly celebrates the Christmas season.

Tip #5: Don’t forget the true spirit of giving this Christmas!
