This year has been a crazy year, I think we all can agree on that. But the Holiday season is the holiday season, and let's try to not let 2020 ruin the most precious time of the year. With all the restrictions happening around the world, the shopping holiday season has been affected so that's why today we bring you 5 simple & smart tips to make the most of this (online) shopping holiday season.
1- Make your orders with time.
This year everyone is shopping online for the gifts, plus all the small shipping problems that covid has been bringing, the best tip is to make your purchase with time ahead so you can receive all the gift before the big day.
2- Shop small business.
With all that has been going on all over this year, a lot of people's job has been affected. This resulted in a lot of people turning to their entrepreneur side and start their local/online small business. That's why we are encouraging you to give a chance and shop for all those new businesses this year, instead of the big ones we all know. Even if you don't notice, you will be helping a lot! Encourage your friends and family to do the same.
3- Personal special gifts.
A lot of people couldn't see each other during the year, and now on Christmas (sadly), it won't be an exception. There is going to be a lot of people that can not meet at this special time of the year, so this tip is for trying to make up for it. Try to make the most special gift for that person, a gift that can say " I know you, I care about you, or I love you". And I assure you that every time they use/wear it, they will be thinking about you!. If you don't know what to gift, we also create a gift idea list to help you choose the right one.

4- Make a Christmas budget.
Make a list of the things you would like to get and prepare a budget for it. You do not need to go crazy shopping for a lot of gifts and getting into debt for it. If you follow the previous tips, you will be able to make it. Find the perfect gift, and not overspend your money on a lot of others that might not be the one.
This supposed to be the happiest time of the year, so do not let the shopping and preparations for it stress you out. By planing everything with time ahead, making a budget, and buying the perfect gift, everything will turn out just fine. Take your time, do something you enjoy, call your loved ones, take that relaxing bath that you keep postponing.
