Wishlist Wednesday: (Extra) Early Gift-Shopping
this will seem a bit ridiculous, but bear with me.
since september is right around the corner, i’m already starting to prepare for my holiday shopping. crazy, I KNOW. but i honestly love shopping for my loved ones — even more than i do for myself — so i like to get started early. this way i’m certain that during the holiday rush, i won’t run out of time, or worse, stocks. que horror!
of course this consists mainly of list-making right now, but that’s one of my favorite things to do anyway, so it’s really a treat more than anything. today i thought i’d share with you some of the spend-y items that i have in mind for the people in my life — myself included. let’s just say…now that i know about SHOPBACK, i feel like i can splurge a bit.
in case you didn’t know, shopback is an awesome cashback/rebates service that lets you save on online purchases through their extensive list of partner merchants. to find out more, please check out my old blog post where i talk about it in detail (you can thank me later 😉 ). i have been actively using their service for almost a year now, and it seriously makes shopping even more fun!
so without any further ado, here is my extra-early christmas shopping wishlist:
(she’ll never need to buy another makeup brush.)
(we all need a face mask that delivers every. single. time.)
(to help him up his photography game.)
(handy tools for any blogger, vlogger and instagrammer.)
(to keep the noise out during his music tripping / guitar jamming / DOTA-playing sessions.)
(because really, who can get enough?)
FOR THE GIRL WHO LIKES TO TREAT HERSELF (A.K.A. ME):
not only is it less stressful in the long run, but having a list of gift ideas (including back-ups!) this early on keeps me on the lookout for discounts and promotions online, which i follow through mailing lists and regular website visits. it also helps me to plan my budget and save wherever necessary, so i can gift my loved ones the things they deserve and i know they will enjoy. it’s a total win-win!
do you think you’ll get started on your gift-list, too? when do you usually start thinking about the holidays?
