Christmas Shopping Tips

December 9, 2011
It’s hard to believe that Christmas is only 2 weeks away! Hopefully your Christmas shopping is done (like me!) or nearly finished. If you are not, I’ve got some shopping tips for you. After years of experience in retailing I have a few pointers that will help make it a little easier for you.
1.) Don’t let the stress get to you. Remember Christmas is about joy and happiness!
2.) Take a deep breath and if possible shop early in the day to avoid the crowds- and always budget extra time as you probably won’t be able to run in quickly to get what you want.
3.) If you get hungry- stop for food and then restart your shopping. It’s much easier to shop when you don’t have to listen to your stomach growl. And don’t forget to stay hydrated- walking around the mall in your winter coat will heat you up.
4.) Treat yourself to the a ‘Self Gift’! Statistics show that 65% of people now by themselves a gift at Christmas time… you deserve it!
5.) When you get home, celebrate your day of shopping-  put on some good music, put your feet up and have a glass of your favourite wine.

To all of my customers and their families have a safe and Happy Chistmas.

Bruce, Manager (Wine Sense- Pembina Hwy)
