Let’s get started!
#1. Buy Bulk
You can stretch your dollar this holiday season by buying things in bulk.
Usually when you buy bulk, the price of an item drops significantly.
Certain apparel shops allow you to buy shirts and other wearables for much lower prices in bulk.
If you can get a deal when you bundle, then it will allow you to give more product to one person or give to many people.
Online places such as Amazon and eBay sell items in bulk too.
Items range from sunglasses to headphones and earbuds, and winter apparel.
#2. Buy Wholesale
You can look for warehouses that will sell to you the type of product you’re looking for at wholesale cost.
Wholesale prices are usually slashed by half or more!
You can also buy wholesale goods online using Alibaba and other e-commerce websites.
You can get some of the nicest and usually most expensive jackets at a much more affordable cost when buying them wholesale.
If you work in an industry that allows you to have access to multiple vendors, take advantage of these deals for this year’s holiday gifts.
#3. Use Online Coupons
If you’re buying holiday gifts online this year, you can use internet explorer’s coupon extension.
This coupon extension browses for codes online to provide you with the best price for what you’re ordering online.
The extension should be a standard popup if you already have the internet browser.
Not only will it navigate through a variety of codes, but it will even provide you with a direct link to a competitor if they have better prices.
This tool is super effective because it scans for the lowest prices while you do your online shopping.
#4. Use Unused Gift Cards
Make the most out of your unused gift cards for this year’s holiday gifts.
You can use the gift cards you have sitting inside that drawer to stretch your dollar by discounting your purchases.
I personally wouldn’t re-gift a gift card but would rather use one for a gift.
This strategy comes in handy if you don’t use every gift card you’re gifted.
Using these during checkout is a great way to reduce your expenses.
Or you may even include one in a basket.
#5. DIY Gifts
These types of gifts are so much fun to give because they’re cost efficient and usually very creative.
DIY gifts can be gift baskets, bundles of convenience products (lotions, sprays, hand sanitizers, etc.), and candy creations.
You can always include a mini holiday card that you can buy in bulk for each DIY project.
They can be personalized depending on whom you’re giving them out to and are great for just about anyone on your list.
Gifting this year doesn’t have to be expensive, but it sure can be special.
