I’ve already seen Christmas lights popping up around the neighborhood, and the stores are covered in holiday decorations. My kids have started writing their Christmas wish-lists….but I haven’t done ANY shopping yet. I’m hoping to avoid stores as much as possible and do the majority of my holiday shopping online.

Several years ago, I wouldn’t have dreamed that I’d love online shopping as much as I do, but the idea that I could avoid crowds, shop at any time of the day, and still find amazing deals makes shopping from my computer a no-brainer.

5 tips for online holiday shopping

Online holiday shopping tips for the savvy shopper

  • Make a list and check it twice- Before starting any holiday shopping, just like a trip to the grocery store, it pays to make a list of all of the people you are shopping for, along with your budget and some suggested gifts to buy. I’ve found that no matter what kind of shopping I am doing, when I don’t have a list, I do more impulse buying.
  • Research- shop around! Find out where your favorite holiday gifts will be sold online and determine where you can find the best price – and when.
  • Wait for free shipping- online stores will often offer deals for free shipping when you spend a certain amount. It’s smart to browse the store for other gifts you could buy at the same time to save on shipping costs.
  • Shop early- My husband loves to save his holiday gift shopping for the very last minute. Not so online-shopping-friendly. Make sure you plan ahead so that your packages have enough time to arrive before the holidays.
  • Remember to earn Ebates while you shop- What’s better than finding the perfect holiday gift? Buying that gift and earning cash back, of course!
