We are constantly bombarded with messages that it will be hard to find all the gifts your family is asking for this year. If you’re lucky enough to find the gift will shipping be an issue? Are you like me wondering rather you should shop now, or wait for the sales you know are coming. Maybe you’re trying to decide rather to make your own gifts and give the big box stores a pass this year, or take a chance, and hope things arrive on time. Here are 5 tips to help
#1 Check out your local mom and pop shops – they have unique items and usually are in stock
#2 Direct Sales companies – they focus on what they have in stock and often you can have an in-home demo or FB party to earn some of it FREE
#3 Check out DIY kits to make your own
#4 Take a workshop, learn a new craft while crossing off a gift on your shopping list all while having fun!
#5 Give a subscription box – there is a wide variety of items that can be shipped to them directly either monthly or quarterly. Some ideas: food items, books or magazines, craft DIY kits, and even games.
