Avoiding Drama with Gifting over Christmas




For some people, Christmas is a stressful time of the year. Juggling everything from gift delivery Wellington to shopping, cooking, parties and more is not always easy. It is important to remember that this is a time to appreciate the people in your life and to try to have a good time! Therefore here are some tips on avoiding drama over gifts this year and every year that follows!

Have a schedule so you know what is what

Sometimes things can start as early as November and go on for 3 months, so having a schedule ensures you do not miss anything important and are not running around. It also helps you plan properly in terms of budgeting.

Have a list you keep close by

Keeping things in your head and not writing it all down means you forget things. It can lead to overspending, not having enough gifts for everyone or buying something that person does not really want. It also helps prevent you from buying something you might have got last year! Have a notebook that is specifically for Christmas, or use your phone so you can have the list close by. For those who you are going to send hampers and baskets to, have it planned when you want to arrange gift delivery Christchurch and elsewhere.

Talk to others so you know who is buying what

If you have a great idea of what to get your in laws, be sure to check with others who buy for them, that they are not getting the same thing. When people communicate over Christmas you can avoid unwanted gifts, or getting presents that are the same. Then you do not have to worry about keeping the receipts for everything too!

Have a budget

For baskets sent as gift delivery Wellington as well as other presents it makes sense to have a budget in mind. People often spend more than they should or than they need to when they do not have a budget in mind. Decide what you are spending on the different people in your life and try to stick to it. If you need to keep it affordable suggest a Secret Santa for friends and family groups.

Have a spare gift or two just in case

Sometimes an unexpected person might turn up at a party or you might end up at someone’s home you had not planned for. Having a spare gift or two saves you from having to run out to grab something should it happen. It does not have to be anything overly expensive, and if you do not end up giving them to anyone you can treat yourself with those small gifts!

Ask others what they want

There is nothing wrong with asking people what they want if you have no idea. It is better than getting them something they hate or never use. For tough to buy people or really anyone, a hamper or basket gift delivery Christchurch is also a great option.
