Don’t let this be another year where you’re scrambling during busy days of December, – hit the ground running and get your holiday shopping done early this year. We at Dulles 28 Centre are open and ready for early holiday shoppers. Luckily, we’ve come up with some tips for all you holiday go-getters. Read on and happy shopping!
Start Shopping Before Black Friday
Black Friday is used to kickstart the holiday shopping season, but what if we told you that it doesn’t have to be? Contrary to popular belief, you can start your holiday shopping way before your Thanksgiving feast. While Black Friday offers some great deals and savings opportunities of the year, starting your shopping early will save you time and spare you aggravation! Many stores have foregone the typical Black Friday-style perks and are offering special deals the entire week (or even weeks) leading up to Black Friday. Skip the crowds this season and head to the stores ASAP.
Go With Gift Cards
Big, bulky gifts are a thing of the past. While kids may still love the feeling of looking at a mysteriously wrapped box under the tree, adults have lost that element of wonder. They do, however, love saving money! If you go with a gift card, not only are you saving browsing time, you’re also giving the gift of freedom and choice. Your gift card recipient can go back to the store on their own time and use the card for whatever catches their eye. No more guessing sizes or wondering if you chose the right style or color. In fact, the gift card you choose doesn’t have to be for something material at all! Consider a gift card to the recipient’s favorite hair salon, a grocery store, for their mobile plan, and more. Nothing says “I love you” quite like saving a family member or friend some money!
Choose a One Stop Shop
Shopping is so much easier when you can get everything you need in one place. Let’s face it, you’re not likely to find a gift for your father and your daughter in the same store, you’ll need to diversify! Head to your local shopping center and spend your day perusing the shops looking for gifts for the whole family, from grandma to the family dog. And our personal one-stop shop? Well, Dulles 28 Centre of course! We have a wide array of different specialty stores perfect for finding gifts for loved ones of all ages.
Take Advantage of Deals
Black Friday isn’t the only day that you can save money while you shop for gifts. In fact, plenty of stores offer weekly specials, monthly discounts, and different sales strewn throughout the days leading up to the holiday season. Dulles 28 Centre, for example, is constantly offering deals so that you can save money on high quality products all throughout the year. The holiday season doesn’t have to break your bank- plan around the deals before you head to the stores.
Don’t Drop While You Shop
Holiday shopping can be a long and tiresome experience. We disagree with the age old saying of “shop ‘til you drop,” and recommend quite the opposite. If you’re feeling tired during your shopping trip, take a break! Get off your feet and grab a bite to eat or a hot drink to energize you.
