Ashley Furniture: Festive Shopping Made Easy
Festive shopping can be a stressful time. The shops are busy, the parking lots are full, and this year, everyone has the added worry of Covid-19 to think about. That’s why we’re bringing you a festive shopping guide to help you make the most of this silly season, with tips and tricks from the experts at Ashley Furniture.
Don’t wait until the last minute
Be proactive with the shopping process this season. We don’t want you to become the frantic shopper trying to find a gift the night before the office Secret Santa Exchange. Or the person who drives around town on Christmas Eve in search of an open store. Having all your holiday shopping done early will give you peace of mind and avoid stressful last-minute browsing. Being an early bird shopper can also help you find better deals and savings on gifts. So, get all your shopping done ahead of time!
If you are shopping online, be mindful of shipping times. This year, retailers across the globe have experienced delays in shipping orders. These delays will be apparent with the start of the busy shopping season during the holidays. Keep calm and get your orders in early.
Make a list. Check it twice.
With the potential for stress this season, create a plan to make shopping a fun experience! We recommend that you start your shopping adventure online to maximize your gifting options. You can use shopping tools to check an item’s in-store availability in case you’d like to view it in person before purchasing.
Since the holiday season is typically a high-traffic time in store, plan out which places you’d like to browse. It will make the process seem less overwhelming.
Be a thoughtful gifter
Feeling like a stumped shopper? Thinking back through shared memories is great when you feel a little stuck. If you still find yourself struggling, just treat it like writer’s block. Remove yourself from the shopping experience and try again later. Hopefully, you’ve given yourself enough time.
We also think you should shop one gift recipient at a time. Have 20 people on your shopping list? Take the time to carefully select the perfect gift for them. Is your coworker Suzannah always cold at work? Get her a cozy blanket that she can store in her desk. Does your mom love to display flowers on the kitchen table? Shop elegant vases to complete the look.
Know a homebody? Ashley Furniture has got gifts for them. What about the ultimate hostess? Covered. You can also shop by style and check out Ashley Furniture’s collection of inhouse designer favourites here.
