Very soon holiday shoppers will be out in full force, and the stress of finding the perfect gift at the right price will be high! I love to shop, but I just can’t deal with the stress.  I try to plan ahead, shop at stores with great deals (year round) and get my shopping done when and where best suits my schedule.  Take a look at how I plan shop wrap and gift with ease this holiday season. You can also download my FREE gift planning spreadsheet to help ease your holiday stress a bit.

I am a planner, mainly because I don’t deal with stress well. I like to think things through and avoid unnecessary chaos in my life.  I am so passionate about this I wrote a book, 7 Ways to Simplify Your Holidays.  In it I talk about the importance of planning ahead specifically for holiday gifting to avoid overspending and last minute stressful shopping.  You can download a FREE version of the spreadsheet I use and talk about in the book to plan gifts here.  It’s a simple layout that allows you to set a total budget, as well as a per person budget.  You can also list multiple gift ideas per person and track which ones you purchase and the final price.

I filled in my spreadsheet last month and started shopping this month.  I prefer to shop at stores where I can get multiple nice gifts at great prices, without having to wait for a special sale.  Big Lots fits that bill.  They have a huge selection and gifts for just about everyone on my list.  If you haven’t been there in a while, now is the time to shop. You are bound to find quality, brand name, trendy items you can check off your gift list.

I picked up a Barbie with a couple of outfits that my daughter or any young girl will love.  They had a nice selection and I was able to get just the style I know she likes.

There is always something tasty at Big Lots. Outside of their regular grocery items I found candy, hot cocoa sets, popcorn, tea and so much more specially packaged for the holidays.

I grabbed my Father-in-law’s favorite peanut brittle and some truffles for a secret santa.  These are delicious brand name items at a great value.

Receiving a thoughtful gift is wonderful, but I think it adds so much more to the gift when you take a little extra time to wrap it up in pretty paper with a few embellishments.  I found some bright and fun wrapping supplies at Big Lots that will work for all my gifts this year.

I can mix and match all of these wrapping items to create stunning gifts.

  • Buy wrapping paper, ribbon and embellishments that coordinate so you can mix and match as you wrap.
  • Use 2 different size ribbons to tie up your gift and add some interest to the bow.
  • Add an ornament or floral sprig to the gift to top it off.
  • Use a pretty tag to address the gift and write a short note.

Big Lots has been good to me so far this holiday season and I will be going back for a few more gifts. I know I can get high-quality items and stay in my budget.

Stay up to date with Big Lots and all their holiday items on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
