Christmas 2016: Game Plan & Shopping Strategy

vapcln7ln7oi4

It’s not a secret, Christmas is fun & magic, but it’s also a bit overwhelming… Finding gifts for all the people we love, a dress for the office party, another one for the family event, some sweaters for the outdoor activities…

Here is my shopping game plan to attack this expensive & busy season;

Gifts… What?

… Spa … Massage … Creams … Hair products … Parfum … Makeup …

… Lounge wear … Pajama … Socks … Blancket … Home decoration …

… Kitchen supplies … Cups … Candles … Chocolate … Flowers … Champagne … Wine

… Trendy jewelry … Fine jewelry … Sunglasses … Watch … Apple watch …

… Electronic things … Video games … Tools … Go Karting … Show tickets

More ideas? Please share!

Where?

… Entrepôts … Before hitting the real mall, I strongly suggest everybody to look at this list of sample sales (mostly happening in Montreal). Chances are, the present you are looking for is available in one of those sales.

… Online … Because your couch is very comfortable & you can take all the time you need to pick the perfect gifts for your loved ones instead of running like a chicken with no head.

… Outlets … No one’s going to know whether you paid the full price or not…

… Local boutiques … If you haven’t found what you were looking for in the 3 points enumerated above, there’s no way out… You have to invest time & money. Therefore, you might as well support the local economy!

When?

… As soon as it opens … Everything is still folded perfectly & most of the world is still sleeping… Monday / Tuesday nights are not bad either if ever you are not a morning person.

Pssst…

… Aéroplan … Air Miles … Because if you are going to spend all that money anyway, you might as well collect the points at the end of the run!

I hope this list is going to help you just as much as it helps me!

Cheers from Tepic!
