Why it's never too early to start christmas shopping: Unique gifts for everyone on your list featured by Top lifestyle blogger, Running in Heels.

Thank you to Uncommon Goods for sponsoring this post, Gift Guide: Why it’s Never too Early to Start Christmas Shopping. Thank you all for supporting the brands that make Running in Heels possible.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t even begin to think of Christmas until after Halloween, after Thanksgiving, usually! I used to be a terrible procrastinator with just about everything, but as I get older, I’ve learned to manage my time better. I try to get ahead of things, and when it comes to gifts, I like to grab them early to allow time for planning and thinking everything through.

When I buy gifts, I like to just find something that reminds me of a person. I’ve started as early as June before! When I buy gifts, I don’t typically set out with a specific list unless the person has something they really want. It is so much less stress to shop ahead of time and grab things as I see them, then I can be prepared when December rolls around! Believe me, it’s never too early to start Christmas shopping! I’m getting my Christmas shopping started early this year, and Uncommon Goods is helping me out!

It’s Never too Early to Start Christmas Shopping

Beat the Increased Prices

Black Friday and early Christmas sales are definitely ones to take advantage of course but, it’s my experience that recently, sales before Thanksgiving are actually better than sales on Black Friday. If you sign up for Uncommon Goods email list and get wind of their secret sales!

Find Unique Gifts

You know those gifts heart-stopping gifts that you want to surprise your family with, but can never find? Done! Since I don’t use a list, I’m always hunting down something that I can never name or put my finger on, but know I want to find. something special. I have the most amazing family and friends, and a material gift never feels like enough. However, it is, as they say, the thought that counts, and I think that something unique is better than an unwanted sweater.

    I can’t remember the last time I actually Christmas shopped. I always just give everyone money or gift cards and let them get what they want. I’m too lazy to shop for anyone else haha!

    I’m more of a last minute shopper, but maybe I should try “the early bird gets the worm” deal this time around. Like you said, there’s way less stress. I need to go before Thanksgiving this year!
