It's already mid-November, and many people have begun their holiday shopping. With the ease of online shopping, you can buy presents while you are in your pyjamas, making next week's meal plan or watching your favourite show. Some people find that shopping online can be stressful. Here are three tips to help avoid the online shopping stress: 1) Plan early Check websites for shipping dates and make sure you have enough time to get the item to you -or to the person you are sending it to - in time for the holidays! 2) Know the costs It feels great to find a deal online, or to find the perfect gift that you want to buy, but don't forget about the additional costs. Factor in shipping, duty or international fees to make sure your gift doesn't give you a surprise too. (And yes, BeautyGram still has free shipping for the holidays!!) 3) Keep it simple Sometimes, you can surf for hours on various websites looking for the perfect gift, at the right price, that ships to your country and so on. Keep your gift giving simple and don't make it any more complicated than you have to. Shopping at the same place in one order is usually best for shipping rates and sometimes there are discounts when a certain amount is spent. Or, find 'all in one' gifts (like a BeautyGram!) or gift cards that can be sent and still have a Wow! factor. Have you started planning for your holiday shopping?
