Balling on a Budget: Christmas Edition


Being wrapped up with Thanksgiving joy can leave you in a panic when you realize Christmas is right around the corner. Well fear not, even if you missed shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday there are still stores that are offering deals during this week and the whole month of December. The best part, especially if you might procrastinate like me, buying gifts can be easy and inexpensive.

If you do not like waiting in the long lines and waiting hours to find a parking spot, then you might find yourself to order your gifts online. But nowadays you can easily avoid that because a lot of stores have free shipping during the Holiday Season.

For starters, I suggest shopping on Amazon first. You can never go wrong with shopping on Amazon. Amazon has new deals every five minutes. However, their deals are going to end this week. So make sure to order all of your Amazon needs by the end of this week.

On the other hand, If you are looking for Christmas party outfits some of my favorite places to buy them are LulusAbercombie & FitchTobi, and Free People, Lulu’s is offering free shipping over $50, free returns on all orders, and 70% off selective items. Additionally, Abercombie & Fitch are having 50% off select styles and an extra 30% off entire purchases, If you head over to Tobi they are having a 30% sale on sale items and free shipping over $50. Free People is having free shipping on all orders, and today if you spend $50 on beauty and wellness products than you get a $100 gift with your purchase.

If you still in need to buy some secret Santa gifts than  Yankee Candle and Bath and Body Works has deals you can not beat. Both stores have new deals and discounts every day. If you go on the Yankee Candle website under the sale section they have limited time offers that only last during the Christmas Season. These deals range from buy 3 large candles get 3 candles free and $1, $3, $5 deals.  Bath and Body Works have a list of deals that include 5 wallflower fragrance for $23, 2 room sprays for $12, and today only 20% off your entire purchase.

Although, if you cannot find your secret Santa gift in one of these places then you should look into stores that have holiday gift sets. Some of my favorite stores that always have these are Lush and Sephora. My favorite thing about Lush is that the gift sets are Christmas themed. Also Sephora has value sets that allow you to get more of your favorite brands. But even if you are not in need of a secret Santa present, check out these stores for presents for your friends and family.

Before you go, on final tip before shopping is to check the deals the stores you’re going to has because some of these might expire or there might be better deals. Also before going check on RetailMeNot and Groupon for extra coupons and discounts.
