Nowadays everywhere you click on the internet the story is pretty much the same – Christmas Gifts Ideas. Which might prove pretty handy if you`re in a shopping frenzy but without any idea of what gifts to buy. But how about a few tips & tricks on how to never run out of gift ideas?
Here are mine and through the years proved to be pretty helpful:
- I am making a list of the people I have to buy gifts for in September. Yes, September because it gives me time to think without any rush madness at what should I buy this year for everybody
- I believe in useful and practical gifts so I always buy something that the person would use in that moment of his/her life. I mean, I know a hair dryer might not be as glam as a photo frame but it`s something my friend needs so I buy the hair dryer
- If I absolutely can`t figure out what to buy for someone I write them a letter telling them that they have a X sum credit at the Morodan Bank and that I`m waiting for them to tell me where he/she wants to spend it
- And yes, I am by all means avoiding all the hectic shopping and the crowded malls two weeks before Christmas – I don`t have time to waste so I managed and got one of the Alpha Bank credit cards and I hate wasting money so if I use one of the 3 cards – Alpha Card Visa Credit, Alpha MasterCard or Alpha Visa Gold, at all my buys over 100 lei I get 10% back – so I am a smart shopper also, see?
So? What do you think about my Christmas shopping optimizing strategy? I must admit, it proves pretty helpful for me. This is the third year of applying it and it works like magic.
Speaking about magic/Christmas and presents I have a surprise under my sleeve, a contest and here`s how it works: You have to subscribe here – then 3 of you will be selected by random.org and each of you will win a gift voucher of 100 lei to spend in Baneasa Shopping City. You can find out if you won on the 31th of December and get your prize right after.
