If you’re anything like me, you are probably behind on everything Christmas. It’s my favorite holiday but it just keeps creeping up so fast! I’m behind but here I am blogging. Logic. Since I want everyone to have everything in order, here are my tips to having the best holiday season!
1. Take Advantage of Free Shipping
Everything is probably absolutely packed, so turn to online shopping! A lot of online stores are offering free shipping + for sure delivery before or on Christmas Eve, so if you don’t have time to go out and shop, jump on the internet.
2. Making It to the Brick and Mortar
However, if you absolutely have to go to an actual store, have a plan! If you’re buying something specific, call ahead and see if it is available. Go at the off times, such as really early in the morning. It will suck but then again you should have started shopping weeks ago.
3. Lock Down Plans
Everyone decide that Christmas will now be in Miami, Home Alone 2 status? Make sure everything is in order, call anyone and everyone because you don’t want to wait until two days before and realize you have to make a feast for your family.
4. When In Doubt, DIY It
Don’t know what to get everyone? Guilty. Make cards! It will be more heartfelt than buying a generic box and this way you can be creative. Pinterest will save you as always, and you can always create something out of nothing, and this way people won’t argue that you spent way too much on your puppy than the box of chocolates you got them.
5. Have Backup Plans to Everything
If you don’t want to watch The Grinch five thousand times, make sure you have something for everyone to enjoy. Karaoke machines are great, or having movies on hand can make everyone happy. Always have extra food! It’s the holidays, people eat, plus, you will never know who shows up until it comes.
6. Just Love and Be Happy
Remember, Christmas is about spending it with people you love, so don’t worry if you’re eating hot dogs for dinner or if you ran out of tinsel, just enjoy it and remember that people are much better than presents.
December feels so quick when you have to get everything done and everything comes in the way. Don’t worry have fun, everything will work out! Do you have any last-minute tips? Let me know! Happy holidays!
