my holiday shopping strategy

Christmas is only 4 weeks away and I'm just now getting started on gift shopping--yikes! #procrastination

With moving into the new house still just barely on the horizon and a grad school mini session the week before Christmas, I'm trying to figure out an efficient way to cross gifts off my shopping list in the short amount of free time I have. Although I love the thrill of purchasing gifts in actual stores, I'm starting to like the idea of shopping from the comfort of home--only when it entails free shipping, of course!

I've made a list of some of my favorite online stores that offer some sort of free shipping--most, if not all, of which are also guaranteeing delivery by Christmas Eve! Happy shopping! xo.

PS: Feel free to comment and add some of your favorite free shipping sites that I haven't included!

  1. I agree, as much as I enjoy it, Xmas shopping can be stressful and it's a big relief once it's all done and the wrapping fun begins! Online is the way to do it!

  2. Yes, I think wrapping might be my favorite part! Plus, it's fun when all my purchases start arriving in the mail :)
