I have a confession to make.
I haven't even started my Christmas shopping yet. Although, I have started my own Christmas wish list:
- a macro and wide angle lens for my camera
- a new pan set (particularly the le creuset line of cookware. I love the "flame" and "kiwi" color schemes)
- Duvet set
- Vitamix blender
- new wedding set (I lost mine years ago after I took it off to do some cleaning. I think it went down the drain)
I tell myself every year that I will start my Christmas shopping early; that I will not wait until December when the crowds of people ransack the stores and I am left sifting through the remnants of products. Yet, each year, I wait until the last minute because I hate contemplating what to get everyone.
So, for the next few months my plan is to get ahead of the game. Instead of getting my family and friends the traditional standby gifts, I want to get them items that they will actually want and use! I've found some wonderful online venues that will be perfect for shopping from the comfort of my couch! No fighting traffic. No arranging for a babysitter. Now that's what I call a great opportunity for a shopping frenzy!!
One of the best venues I have found online is CSN Stores.com as it has over 200 stores combined into one shopping experience. The categories to choose from include:
- home decor
- home improvement
- outdoor living
- baby & kids
- school & office supply
- shoes, bags and luggage
- health & fitness
CSN Stores make finding the perfect gift a breeze!!! I am sure that by the time I get done shopping for family and friends, my own Christmas wish list will expand as well.
