I started my Christmas shopping early this year—I’m not the type of person who appreciates too much competition in the market. Some of the items, I bought from malls such as clothes and accessories for my nieces, while some I had to order online such as the gretsch honeydipper I bought for my husband.
Not only does early shopping save you from the hassle of Christmas rush, it also gets you great deals and bargain items. It’s very practical. There’s only one downside though—if you don’t know how to keep the presents well for a long time, the recipients will eventually find them and the element of surprise will be gone! If you’re planning to do early shopping next year, my advice is to find a great hiding place first before buying items so you can keep them out of sight as soon as you bring them home.
