How To: Survive Christmas Shopping

How To Survive Christmas Shopping

As we're well into the advent calendar season, it's time to start do some serious Christmas shopping. I've been slightly more organised than last year and have got the majority of my shopping done, and wrapped! So here's a little guide to how you can survive Christmas shopping:

1. Write a list.

Even though this isn't just a Christmas thing, lists are incredibly handy when you're Christmas shopping for the family. I usually search through the Christmas catalogues and online websites to find presents, then armed with my list, go to the shop and buy them! 

2. Wear good shoes.

Now I sound like my Mum. But if you're walking around for a few hours, you don't want to be breaking into your new and uncomfortable new shoes. Trainers or boots are your best options, and across-the-body bags also make for an easier shopping experience!

3. Take some handgel.

If you're travelling on public transport, this is a must. But with everyone sneezing and coughing, you really don't want to be catching their germs before Christmas! Plus, think about how many people have touched those card pin-pads...

4. Plan your route.

This may just be me (holler if it isn't!) but I like to know where I'm going when I'm shopping, just because it saves so much time than having to double back on yourself. Also, going to the shops first where you know they'll be super busy is such a time-saver. 

5. Enjoy it!

Above all, just enjoy it! It only comes round once a year and with all the festive events, music and food and wine, it's hard not to get into the Christmas spirit. 

So there's my How To: Survive Christmas Shopping! What's your tips on surviving Christmas shopping?

Thanks for reading!
