I don’t know about you, but as a busy working parent, I do most of my Christmas shopping online. I just find it so much easier than taking the time off to drag around the shops, pushing my way through the crowds.
As parents we all know how difficult it is to wrangle a pushchair through the busy shops and struggle with all the bags so I just prefer the ease of shopping online and having it delivered to my home!
I also think that you can shop around online easier to get some really good deals, which you can’t always in the shops. You can compare prices between different stores and shop a little bit wiser, avoiding those impulse purchases. I write a list of everything I want and just get it done, no distractions.
It’s definitely worth getting online for Cyber Monday too. This year it is on Monday 27th November which will give you plenty of time to get your presents delivered and wrap them before Christmas!
My girls have already started writing their Christmas lists and I know that there are lots of books, stationary and craft materials on there. It’s good to know that The Works will be participating in Cyber Monday as I know that I can get lots of books and pens for them as well as some toys and games. There is so much that The Works sells which would make great Christmas gifts – they even have a whole section on slime! I find that everything is such great value too, even when it’s not cyber Monday.
What about you? Do you prefer to browse the shops or are you an online bargain hunter scouring the cyber Monday online deals like me? I’m interested in hearing how everyone else plans for the festive season!
