1. Start Early

The number 1 way to reduce stress and the rush of holiday shopping is starting early. By starting now you will be done by the holidays which gives you more time to spend with your family and friends. Waiting until the last minute can result in empty selves, out of stock items, overpriced items and delayed shipping. 

2. Create A Budget

Before you even click an online store or step foot in a store you need to create a budget. Determine how much you are willing to spend on gifts and what is the amount you are comfortable with. Sticking to a budget will help your financial stress with holiday shopping. 


Tip: Don’t forget to add other holiday experiences besides gifts.
