Naughty or nice?  The votes are in and I’m making my Christmas list.  I’ve noticed in past years that the earlier I start, the less I spend and the more thoughtful my gifts are and pleasing to the recipients.  Here’s some tips to save money and choose the right gift for your special someone.

  • Make a list of people you need to buy gifts for.  This will help you start on creating a budget, by knowing how many gifts you need to buy.  If you don’t write it down, it can easily get out of control.
  • Do some “brainstorming” and write down ideas as they pop into your head.  Sometimes the casual free-thinking ideas turn out to be the best!
  • Make it personal.  Think about what your recipient likes to do, what there hobbies are, what are some things they might not spurge on themselves, but would love to have.
  • Shop early.  Last-minute panic shopping means you’ll be spending more than you budgeted in a desperate move to find something.
  • Add it up.  Total your list and make sure this is really want you want to spend.  $25 here, $30 there, doesn’t sound like much but the total might surprise you!
  • Comparison shop and think outside the box.  Don’t limit yourself to big retailers.  Think about shopping online – gas prices are crazy and staying home really saves money!

One place that I love to shop online is eBay.  It’s fun, you can find great bargains, and unique items!  Did you know eBay has many new items from authorized dealers?  Combined with free shipping, this makes eBay a great place to shop for holiday gifts this year!  Save time, money, and avoid the crowds by clicking right through your Christmas list!

Who are you shopping for this year?  Spouse?  Friends?  Co-workers?  Teachers?  There is a huge variety of new gifts for everyone on your list at eBay.  And you can get free shipping!
