The holidays are a merry time but Christmas shopping itself can be super stressful! As soon as August ends, Christmas shopping becomes the main focus. Holiday madness used to start immediately after Halloween, Thanksgiving and Black Friday, but savvy shoppers are now starting their holiday shopping even earlier. With Christmas TV commercials starting and stores putting up their holiday displays almost before the summer vacations are over, planning your gift shopping months ahead of the actual holidays is a good tip for being ready to catch all those early holiday deals and making your life a whole lot easier!
Early shopping for the holidays is such a great idea. By creating a holiday checklist and starting to tick things off your list when you start your Christmas shopping in September. you can reduce holiday panic levels, focus on your budget, and it makes it easier for Santa!
1. It Allows You To Plan Ahead And Save Money
Research conducted by Snapfish shows the average American shopper spends over $100 on holiday gifts for their family and friends. Understandably, for some people, this level of Christmas spending can be a drain on their bank account, but when you start holiday shopping preparations early and shop within a budget, it’s easier to stay on top of things. Just work out how much you can afford to spend on gifts and entertainment, divide your gifting budget by the number of gifts you need to buy, and stick to the plan. This reduces the chance of impulse purchases, and by starting your shopping pre-season, there are likely to be fewer panic buyers and crowds, to raise your blood pressure unnecessarily.
2. It Makes You A More Thoughtful Gift-Giver
When you plan your holiday shopping list ahead, you give yourself more time to think about your presents, and are more likely to buy gifts your friends and family might need or want. Instead of buying off the shelf presents from the local store that your loved ones might re-gift or send onto the Thrift Store, why not create personalized Christmas gifts that are likely to be kept and treasured? With Snapfish, it is surprisingly quick & easy to create bespoke gifts for all your loved ones, so you can enjoy the magic of the festive season – such as gift-wrapping, and writing personalized holiday greeting cards when everyone else is still out there in those crowded shopping malls.

Last-minute holiday shopping is not one of the “joys of Christmas”, especially when you are trying to find the perfect Christmas gift. It might take a bit of early planning to start your Christmas shopping in September, but you can save loads of money and have fun creating gifts your loved ones will truly appreciate.
