Why Shop Early?

Monday October 20, 2014 - by Jessica Klein

As a local business owner I am always amazed at how many people come in Christmas Eve for a gift that they saw 4 months ago. The grab it now or it will be gone mentality really does apply to gifts, especially unique ones found in smaller store. That is why they are unique right?

I can’t stress enough that now is a great time to shop! Most stores have the best pickings of gifts right now, just without the Christmas trees. It is also a great time to place any special orders for furniture or gifts you may have seen earlier in the year. I have seen a lot of holiday shoppers this year taking care of business, but I have also seen many who are writing down ideas and will be back in another month with a 50/50 chance we will have the same thing in. So get that list going and start marking it off. Your frantic side will thank you.

Here are some of my favorites that are already running out the door.

Brilliant Idea LED Light – A portable plastic light that you can tie anywhere. It takes batteries and with a pull of the cord the light turns on. Great for kids as a light near the bed, take on trips as a travel light, use in a closet or bathroom. It really is brilliant. $12.50
Monster Hat Kit

Hoops Trash Can Basketball Game – Love the idea of this game in an office or kids room. Just clamp the backboard and hoop onto your trash can and start shooting hoops. A great office gift or white elephant! $26.00

Mercury Glass Bird Votive – A beautiful girlfriend gift that is fabulous paired with a scented votive candle. $9.95
