5 Ways To Start Preparing For The Holidays NOW
It’s officially October and that means we have serious holiday season tunnel vision. The temp is dropping, the PSLs are flowing, and we’re all about holiday shopping prep. Here are our 5 tips for staying on top of the holidaze this year.
First thing’s first. You need to start on your wish list. Seriously, don’t be stuck in 1999 emailing your parents, siblings, besties, and bae your wish list. Get your holiday shopping prep on point. Put everything you want into one collection (or a few, mom and dad might not be the one buying you that nighty!), and get organized. This way there are no excuses as to why you didn’t get exactly what you wanted this holiday season.
Start thinking about all the kinds of gifts you’ll need to give this season. You don’t want to be blindsided or put #overbudget by parties you didn’t know you needed a hostess gift for. We seriously suggest making a collection for each category of gifts to adequately prep for holiday shopping. Hostess, besties, Dirty Santa parties, you name it. It will make your life so. much. easier. We’ve already started you off with some amaze ideas in our Gift Guides.
Start planning present now. When you see something you think would be a cute gift for someone, KEEP IT. Even if you’re not going to buy it right this minute, you’ll be so glad you started your holiday shopping on Keep and have it to shop later. You do know you can Keep from anywhere right?! All you have to do is install the “Keep It Button” and voila! You can Keep from anywhere any time. YAS.
Start shopping for your holiday decor. If you’re a big entertainer, this is a V imp step in your preparing for the holidays. You need to have all the pieces for the perfect place settings, and a holiday flare throughout the house. If you live in a metropolitan shoebox like us, maybe just a few pieces of holiday cheer will do. Seriously, not even a wreath would fit on our doors. Major eye roll.
Now for the most fun...get your party clothes in order! We have a full holiday schedule...we’re like really popular. This means we need a million cute outfits. Just think of the Insta opps! You need to get your party going attire on point, like now. Keep a collection with your fave splurges, slightly more budget friendly options, and everything in between.
