What Kind Of Christmas Present Shopper Are You?
Okay, that was a big question… let’s see how you rate.
A) I’m Super Organised. I have my list – names, budget, gift ideas, and a few things have already been stashed away.
B) I’m Somewhat Organised. I’ve been listening for hints that they may be dropping, kinda thinking about writing a list, but I really need to get cracking on choosing the perfect gifts while time is on my side.
C) Ahh Christmas? When’s Christmas? I know, I know, it’s 25 December… same date every year right! My pre-pandemic shopping style was doing a mad dash to the shops on Christmas eve. I need a new plan this year… help me! Wink ;-)
If you answered;
A – Yay! Go you! We bet you’ve already started your shopping too! You are definitely our hero. If you have a few more things to find, read on for some inspo for your Mum or others on your list.
B – Nice one, you’ve made a start and that’s great. Scroll on for help in finishing your list.
C – Don’t worry, we’ve all been there! There’s something magical about shopping on Christmas Eve in search of that perfect gift. This year, as we emerge from lockdowns around the country, it's worth thinking about how you can reduce your stress so you can have some Christmas cheer with family and friends instead of shopping.
Top Tips for Christmas Shopping For Mum
Tip: Order Early! You’ll want your presents to arrive well ahead of time (we don’t need any postal delays to dampen our Christmas cheer).
Tip: Support an Australian Made brand! Mindfully choosing a locally manufactured gift over something from overseas will make a difference in someone's life. You’ll be giving a gift of quality and at the same time helping to rebuild our domestic economy as we all work through what life looks like post-pandemic.
