Top 5 last minute Christmas shopping hacks


When it comes to decorating the Christmas tree and picking your party dress, Christmas shopping can be put to the back of the queue. If you’ve left your Christmas shopping quite late then have no fear. Check out these last minute Christmas shopping hacks and you will be organised in no time!

Make a list

If you feel as though you’ve left your Christmas shopping to the last minute, it always makes you feel better if you’re that little bit organised. Grab yourself a hot chocolate, switch on the Christmas tree lights, sit down and take it all in. Try and make a list of the people you need to buy for; this can make the shopping process easier. It’s also helpful to write down a few ideas of what gifts you can buy for people, that way you’re even more prepared!

Try online

Online shopping is so accessible, you could do all of your Christmas shopping at 2am if you bought it all on the internet. If you’re working non-stop, online shopping is probably your best bet. Some websites make the process easier during Christmas by offering overnight shipping so you still get your gift the next day. You can shop in the comfort of your own home in your pyjamas, what is not to love!

Wear comfy shoes when you’re out shopping

We all know that when we are out shopping it’s important to stay comfortable, especially when it comes to your feet. You’ll be walking around a very long time so maybe put your sky scraper heels away for today and choose some comfy flats or mid-heel boots. You don’t want to have to go home with aching feet before you’ve finished your Christmas shopping!

DIY gifts

Homemade gifts are also really appreciated and so easy to make. Why not go on Pinterest and get some homemade gift inspiration? Seasonal cookies, Christmas cakes and cupcakes are just some yummy ideas.

Put away your phone!

Lets face it, we all get distracted by who tweeted who and liking photos in Instagram. Last minute Christmas shopping and distraction don’t mix very well. If you’re determined to focus on the task in hand, put your phone in your bag and have a few hours free to shop till you drop!

Good luck shopping!
