You planned to do your Christmas shopping early this year. You really did. No more last minute racing around trying to check off everyone on your list. But then there was that crisis at work, and the kids came down with the flu and your car died, and well, it’s December already and you don’t have a single gift.
Relax! There’s still time to get something for everyone on your Christmas list. And you can do it without setting foot in the mall or a big box store or spending hours and hours searching online. I’m going to tell you how to do your Christmas shopping in one day without leaving your house. Ready? Let’s shop!
Point and Shoot Digital Camera
A gift made for grandparents
If your grandparents are like so many I know, their life is a wirlwind of travel, visits with the grandkids and senior club activities. So what better gift for them than an easy-to-use point-and-shoot digital camera from Cameta Camera. They’re easy to use, so even the most technophobic among us can use them with confidence. They’re perfect for capturing a Venetian sunset or a grandbaby’s first smile.
Mom will love it!
Silver jewelry is versatile enough to take Mom from the office to a night on the town in style. And the chunky, gypsy look of a cuff bracelet is one of the most popular looks this season. But skip the mass-market versions. Mom deserves better. Buy her a hand-crafted silver bracelet and she’ll never have to worry about seeing her bracelet on everyone else at the grocery store.
Take Dad down island
Give Dad a little bit of the Islands with a classic Hawaiian shirt. He’ll love the change from neckties and power tools, and you’ll love his smile. Pair it with a promise of a rope hammock when the weather warms up and you’ll have one happy pop!
Treats for the artsy teens or siblings
Shower your artsy brothers or sisters with goodies from Jerry’s Artarama. No need to search all over the Internet for the medium they like or the tools they use. It’s all there, ready to ship. And if you get lost among the many kinds of paints and brushes and papers, you can always order a gift card. They can even e-deliver it, ready to print! (Perfect for the REALLY last minute shopper.)
Fun stuff for the outdoorsy siblings or teens
Camping will be more fun than ever for your outdoorsy sisters and brothers with the camping gear and gadgets you’ll get them when you shop online. You will find everything from lanterns and cast iron cookware to camp furniture and tents.
Hands on science
Give the kids the gift of exploration
Whether you’re shopping for your kids or nieces and nephews, you can’t go wrong with gifts that encourage them to ask questions and explore answers. Science kits, interactive science and nature toys, puzzles and other engaging toys from Young Explorers are a fantastic choice for preschoolers to tweens.
Interactive baby toys
New ideas for the new babies
The babies in the family will get off to the right start with the creative, colorful and interactive baby toys. They offer engaging toys that encouraging grasping, manipulating, taking apart and putting together.
Baskets of treats
Neighbors, friends and bosses alike
And for all of those friends far and near, special neighbors and even your boss at work, gift baskets match their taste…and your budget. Go big or go small, send fruit or candy, cookies or flowers. They make it easy to take care of the rest of your shopping from the comfort of home.
