Holiday shopping can be an intensely stressful experience. From thinking up gift ideas to hunting down the perfect gifts, it’s never as easy as we hope it will be. Most of us will spend countless hours rummaging through kitschy holiday merchandise in stores that look like they’ve been mangled by a bomb only to find that what we were looking for is no longer in stock. To top it all off when you do find what it is you’re looking for you have to navigate through a sea of other shoppers, wait patiently in line, and than hope that you don’t change your mind or find something better. Ah… I am getting stressed out just writing about it.
This year I have decided to avoid this whole routine completely. With the help of a few, key online retailers I plan on doing all of my holiday shopping from the comfort of my coach while sipping on hot chocolate. The best part of my plan is that with the rise of sites like etsy I can find unique, handmade and one of a kind gifts for all of my friends and family.
Here is a list of online retailers that can save you from your holiday migraine.
