Perfect the Art of Early Christmas Shopping With These Tips

It will save you time and money.

( If you want to avoid the Christmas rush when you go shopping for gifts, it’s best to start as early as possible—and we mean right now. Doing so makes you way ahead of the game, so you wouldn’t have to resort to last-minute panic buying. Below, we list a few tips on how to make the holiday season a little less stressful—from gift-shopping to get-togethers with your friends.


Make your Santa’s list...

…and be organized about it. Sort all the people you’re buying gifts for into specific categories: officemates, friends, family, significant other’s family, and so on. Things will be much easier from here.


Have a master list of all your godchildren.

We know, it’s hard to keep track of all your godchildren and their respective ages year after year. Best to keep a master list with all their names and birth years to simplify the process of choosing age-appropriate gifts. Trust us, this will really help you in the long run.


Always take advantage of free gift-wrapping services.

Most of the time, toy stores offer this. Never turn it down—this saves you a lot of time, effort, and cash. Just make sure to label each gift to avoid mix-ups.


Take note of all the bazaars and sales.

The fourth quarter of the year is usually packed with Christmas bazaars and other sale events. It is where you can score awesome deals and cool discounts if you’re trying to find budget-friendly presents. Put the important dates in your phone’s calendar and set an alarm, so you don’t forget. Who knows—you just might be able to sneak in some shopping for yourself, too.


Have backup gifts for those you might forget.

Because you never know who will come knocking on your door during the holidays, it’s best to be prepared with stock presents. But please do away with the mugs—it’s a too obvious choice. Instead, stock up on perfume, makeup, wallets, cardholders, or whatever you think is not too generic.


For get-togethers, bring something that everyone will enjoy.

The holiday season wouldn’t be complete without countless parties at a friend’s house. Not sure what to bring to the table? You can never go wrong with potato chips. Stock up on Jack ‘n Jill Calbee potato chips and bring life to the party when you pop it open. It’s also the perfect present for people who looove potato chips.



The good thing about Jack ‘n Jill Calbee is that you can buy it almost anywhere, from leading supermarkets to convenience stores. In S&R Supermarkets, you can even buy their Honey Butter Family Pack for only P149.75.


Do something different this year—save yourself from holiday stress, come up with more creative Christmas presents, and keep a supply of Jack ‘n Jill Calbee for an out-of-the-box gift, for party chow, or just for snacking all year round.
