    Make a list of everyone you have to buy for with the budget you'd like to spend for each person. In order to figure out your budget, try to remember what they bought you in previous years. It would be very awkward if someone handed you a nice necklace and earrings set and you gave them a box of chocolates.

  • Look for deals and savings. Some stores will have certain deals after each season.
  • Make sure you have enough money. If you don't, you'll need to rethink your list!
  • Remember that if you're buying for friends to buy the quality they deserve. Example: If you are great friends with a girl/boy don't just get them candy or a card.
  • Include a gift receipt in case something doesn't fit.
  • Save two copies of the receipts, a gift receipt and one for you.
  • Remember quality and price are key go hand in hand. If you buy something that is low quality, the price is low. If you buy something that is good quality, the price is high.
  • If you're short on cash, talk out an agreement with the gift receiver of maybe cutting down or not buying presents this year.


  • When re-gifting, make sure never give people back presents they gave to you.
  • Remember to give in the right manner.
  • Always give gift receipts!
  • Don't buy anything for yourself. This is Christmas shopping, you'll get plenty of presents during Christmas.
