WHEN SHOULD I ORDER CHRISTMAS GIFTS?
Even if it seems too early, remember that prevention is better than cure. It’s been a year of frequent shipping delays, so you want to make sure you get your orders well before December even begins to secure all your freebies with time off. Many retailers offer last minute shipping, but this incurs additional costs and can still cause delays.
WHAT ARE YOU BUYING A WOMAN FOR CHRISTMAS?
It all depends on the personal taste of the person you’re buying for – but great Christmas gifts can range from beauty, to jewelry, to accessories, to home decor, to organization essentials for the New Year.
