I only called it 'MISSION 1' because I wanted to be a super spy. Anywayyyyyy, I went Christmas shopping with some of my friends so we could buy presents for people (and for ourselves). I just had to make a post about it. 'Hacks and Tips for Gift Buying' mission, you are a go!
Hack 1. Don't know what to gift to get someone? Get them a gift card or money, trust me, it's the best thing to do, because then they can get what they want for themselves
Hack 2. Go around and look for the cheapest one, I know this may sound a bit rude to do to someone, but you've got to buy gifts for lots of other people as well.
Hack 3. Go shopping with friends so they can help you choose what to get for a certain person, they may be friends with them and know what to buy. And shopping with friends is fun!
Hack 4. RE GIFTING!!! I know this is rude, but you never used it, you don't want it and it's better for the environment. THINK OF THE POOR PENGUINS!!!
Hack 5. Get cute little gifts like bath bombs or key rings for someone who doesn't know what they want, they will use these and you aren't spending an enormous amount of money on it when they don't actually like the gift.
Hack 6. If you are buying a gift for a large family with different age groups you don't really want to buy individual things, it adds up to a huge price and they might not even like it. I suggest buying a big pack of sweets e.g. Nutella pot or caramel popcorn jar. You could also get a small family (3 people) a fun land pass or tickets, anyone of all ages will love that.
Hack 7. Create your own gift, especially if it is for your parents or grand parents or any other older relatives, because they are required to love anything that you make for them. It saves a lot of money and it is much more thoughtful than buying something.
Hack 8. Don't spend money on wrapping paper. Use wrapping paper from previous gifts that you've received. Use newspaper, dip it in tea to make it look vintage. You can also buy a big roll of wrapping paper and use it for every present, they will also clearly know who it's from.
Hack 9. Give small inexpensive gifts in a jar for that friend who wants lots of little things. You can put in chemist store lipstick, small bracelets or charms and maybe some pictures of you two together to give them something to remember and smile about.
Hope these hacks helped!! LUV YA!!
