When to shop for Christmas presents?
While we tend to hold off buying presents until the last week of Christmas, this year is a little different. However - because of the current circumstances - it is recommended to shop earlier for Christmas this year. Here’s why!
1. Safer for your wellbeing
Christmas season is chaotic in celebrating countries - with stores and malls crammed with last-minute shoppers. Avoid crowds and busy retail outlets this Christmas period by doing your shopping a few weeks earlier and storing away everything you need for the holidays. If you can, shop online to reduce contact with others and buy presents for your loved ones in the comfort of your own home.
2. Safer for employees
Minimising contact with retail employees will also mean that you are not placing others at risk of contracting any illnesses. By doing your shopping earlier or opting for online shopping, you can help reduce the spread of diseases and enjoy your festivities.
3. Reduced risk of stock shortages
With the rise of e-commerce and free time, shopping for goods is at an all-time high. Avoid last-minute disappointment and buy all your presents a few weeks early to prevent stock shortages from getting in the way of your gift ideas.
4. Prevent delayed deliveries
Christmas period is a hectic time - particularly for delivery companies. Last-minute online shopping can drastically increase delivery time. To avoid your gift taking weeks to arrive, order now to guarantee a speedy delivery.
From magnesium bath flakes to nourishing creams and lotions, there are a multitude of sustainable, natural and nourishing presents you can gift your loved ones this year.
Shopping early for Christmas will not only reduce stress, it will help control the spread of Coronavirus. By shopping early and opting for online shopping where possible, you can play your part in minimizing transmission. We wish you a safe and healthy Christmas and New Year.
