Your Christmas Gift Shopping Checklist 2019
What kind of Christmas gift shopper are you? Are you the organised type who has been prepared since October? Or are you the last-minute gift buyer?
If you’ve said yes to the second one, don’t worry. We can help you prep for the remainder of silly season with a plan of attack. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to find the perfect gift this year.
- Step 1. Create your list and start checking it twice.
Channel your inner Santa and start putting together a list of people you’ll need to buy for. Start with your family first and work your way up towards best friends and colleagues at your workplace, if there’s an office Secret Santa happening.
- Step 2. Start character profiling!
Brainstorm what their interests are. What is their personality like? Is there anything they need? This could be in the form of notes or dot points about their favourite movies or hobbies. If you don’t know the person very well, you can write keywords or phrases that remind you of them and see if that sparks anything further.
- Step 3. Ask yourself what kind of gift it should be.
Now here comes the fun part: visualising the gift itself and matching it with their interests. This will narrow down your search and give your gift shopping experience some structure. Should it be a care package? An experience or an event? A funny gift for a long-running inside joke? Or maybe something they could eat and enjoy? It could be as simple as getting your foodie friend a gift card to their favourite restaurant, or it could be as meaningful as gifting your grandmother a floral-scented candle that reminds her of her garden.
- Step 4. Set up a budget.
It is so easy to go overboard during the holiday season. Even if you’re in the mood to spoil your loved ones, give yourself a limit so that your gift has sentimental value, rather than a physical value.
- Step 5. Do the research!
Note down a list of stores or brands that might have the gifts that you’re looking for.
If you’re going to a physical store, check the availabilities of each product before heading out to save time. If you’re shopping online, make sure it arrives on time by checking the shipping. At Peppermint Grove we can guarantee Christmas delivery to Sydney and East Coast Metro areas if you order before December 13th and to West Coast and rural locations if you order by 6th.
- Step 6. Include a bit of yourself into each gift.
The best part! Instead of writing a greeting inside a Christmas card; at Peppermint Grove we can engrave the gift itself with an extra special message. This can be a message or even a logo of a brand they like! Personalise your gifts for loved ones this year and check out how to engrave your candle.
There are so many reasons to shop with Peppermint Grove this Christmas. We offer free engraving for all medium, large and extra-large candles. If you spend over $49.95, not only is shipping FREE but with every order, you’ll receive a complimentary gift bag that makes gifting this festive season even easier!
