Last Min Christmas Shopping for Beginners | #WRAPPERSDELIGHT

20th December 2016.
by Sarah.

Fiiiiiiive mooooore days! Bought everything three months ago and lookin’ kinda smug RN? Well, this blog post isn’t for you. These are our tips on how to kill the last minute shopping game, as there’s less than a week to get things wrapped up.

Last Minute Christmas Shopping… and How to Kill it

Last Minute Christmas Shopping | Public Desire Blog

  1. Make a List
    … and check it twice. Who do you actually need to buy for, and will you be seeing them before Christmas, or will you be seeing them after? As far as we’re concerned, last minute Christmas shopping can be left a lil later if need be…
  2. Is Next Day Delivery an Option?
    Because who really needs to go to actual shops and speak to actual people? Stay in your PJs and select next day or express shipping at checkout (pssst, we’re offering US customers $5 express shipping until midnight PST on Wednesday with code EXPRESS!).
  3. Brave the Shops, but Pick them Wisely
    Turns out next day will get it to you too late, so you’ve gotta head into town. Loads of shops have last min offers on so you might strike lucky and get your presents at a fraction of the price. Once you’ve parked up, go for the shops that have offerings for lots of different people under one roof – department stores are bae.
  4. Actually Remember Point One
    You’re not shopping for yourself. Remember, not yourself.
  5. Get Wrapped
    Don’t forget to purchase some packaging for your gifts, ’cause you defs won’t have time to sit down with some brown paper and ribbons.
  6. Avoid Wrap Rage
    Believe it or not, but you won’t be the only person last minute shopping. We know dealing with crowds is infuriating, but keep things on the DL and you should be able to get everything done within the hour.
  7. Be Smug
    Got home without raging at the machine and got a boot full of presents for everyone on your list? Abso smashed it, bae. And now it’s officially time to treat yo’ self.
