Holiday Shopping Bags - The Crystal Wonderland

Are you ready for the holidays? Is your anticipation kicking in? If you are like us, you are probably getting excited about all these celebrations coming up. But frankly, it can get a little stressful too. The Crystal Wonderland Team knows it could be overwhelming to look for the perfect gifts for your loved ones. You are probably busy, there’s never enough time, you are on a budget, simply not sure what to get your mom this year, and the list can go on and on.

We get it! And that’s why we are here - to help as much as possible.

After some brainstorming, (and lots and lots of coffee), we came up with a few tips for you. Read our suggestion on how to avoid the stress of traditional holiday shopping and minimize your spendings so you are not left with empty pockets right before you ring in the New Year.

1. Plan ahead of time
Start by making a list of all the people you need to buy gifts for. Think about what they might want. If you don’t have any ideas, pay attention during your casual conversations. They may give you some clues. Another thing you can do is check their Pinterest account (if they have one) for items they saved. If that doesn’t help either, just stay tuned for our holiday gift guide coming soon. We’ll have different suggestions for the sophisticated men and women in your household who love crystalware (and that is all of us :) ).

2. Stay within your budget
Don’t go too crazy charging everything on your credit card, hoping that some Christmas miracle will magically wipe off your debt. Look for discounts and holiday promotions instead. For instance, The Crystal Wonderland will be having a lot of special offers throughout November and December, featuring a variety of different crystal gifts for any taste and price range. If you sign up for our newsletter you will also get preferential discounts and will be the first to know about any sale we have. Trust me, you will be happy to score a deal from our e-store.

3. Don’t wait on the line, shop online.
Why drive to the mall in search for the perfect gift, only to find out they don’t have it in stock. Even if that’s not the case, you’ll have to get there, find it yourself, and then wait additional time to just pay for it. We have a simpler suggestion. Browse the world wide web. Nowadays, you can easily find everything online. Take a look at our e-store, for example. You can find a variety of beautiful gifts for people with great taste, just like yourself. Then, you can easily checkout with PayPal, Apple Pay, or any major Credit Card, and have your gift delivered to your door. No waiting, no driving, no worries!

It saves you the hustle of going to the store. It is guaranteed that The Crystal Wonderland e-store has the things you are looking at in stock ready to be shipped within less than 1 business day. We offer free delivery on most orders, so you won’t have to worry about additional shipping cost. Last but not least, you won’t need to pay Sales Tax, unless you reside in the State of California.

4. Don’t shop all at once
Some people like to wait until the last minute and purchase everything at once. While that might work if you don’t have to worry about your spendings, it is not the ideal scenario. Most of us do have a budget and it is better to spend a little every two weeks than to worry about quadrupling our bill in December. Seeing your statement with all these extra charges can add on to your stress lever. We recommend buying gifts ahead of time. Pace yourself. Purchase the gifts you are certain about as early as possible. Thus, you will feel prepared and also get a better idea of your spending.
