Your Guide to Christmas Shopping

Christmas shopping is much more daunting than any other kind; you already know that the main shopping districts will be packed with over-eager consumers, barging and elbowing their way to the best gifts and bargains. The shelves are lined with thousands of products, and you have no idea where to start. You put it off until next week, then the week after, desperate to avoid the madness. Then before you know it, it’s Christmas Eve and you haven’t bought a thing! There are ways you can avoid the stress, and make the whole process much less of a big deal. Follow these tips and it will be a breeze!

First of all, make a list of who you need to buy gifts for. It’s up to you whether or not you write a spending limit for each person, or ideas on what they’d like; the important thing is that you tick them off when you’ve bought them something, then you can see exactly where you stand. You should make this list weeks before the big day - planning in advance will save you the trouble of the last minute rush. Our escort girls already have their lists well under-way!

Thanks to the beauty of modern technology, you can now do your shopping without leaving the house, and get it all online. This is an absolute God-send for those who don’t enjoy the manic shoppers on Oxford Street or in Westfields! From the comfort of your own home, you can choose from millions upon millions of products, pay with your debit or credit card and have them delivered to your door. Make sure that the websites you use are safe and trusted; if you’re at all suspicious, don’t enter your card details.

If you shop online, remember to leave enough time for delivery; this is not a viable option if there are only a couple of days left before Christmas. That’s why it’s a good idea to plan in advance! Many packages will require a signature, so you may need to put some time aside to go to your Postal Collection office if you’re not at home to sign for them during the day.

Whatever you do, don’t forget the wrapping paper; your Mrs won’t be impressed if you present her something wrapped in tin foil or newspaper! Stock up, remember scissors and sticky tape, and perhaps some bows or ribbons to look like you’ve put some effort into your gifts. Women do notice those kinds of things!
