Hate the stress of holiday shopping? You’re not alone. If you’re like most of the shoppers out there you don’t need more stress and pressure added to your already busy schedule. Besides, isn’t holiday shopping supposed to represent peace, joy and togetherness?
Don’t let the shopping madness steal you of the season’s beauty. Instead, let us at Ontario Bakery, share our best tips to help you have a stress free holiday shopping experience.
Make. I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but there’s something special about making something for someone. Whether it’s a craft, something of memorabilia or even baked goods, don’t underestimate the power of creating something special.
Online. Avoid the stores all together. Shop online for your family and friend’s wish list. Even better, make sure to sign up for the bonuses that include rebates and free shipping! Just make sure they have an honorable return policy.
Vouchers. Why not create or purchase coupons or vouchers? You can gift someone a series of neck rubs or foot rubs, babysitting, or dinner cooking! You can also purchase gift cards online and organize them in a sweet way as you present them!
Mornings. If you do choose to go shopping, go early in the morning when the stores open and not on the weekends. Efficient shopping and less stress. Easy, right?
Remember. This is a season of togetherness. It’s really not about getting the most expensive gift or the most gifts. It’s about showing each other how much you value one another. So the biggest stress reducing tip is to keep the whole thing in perspective.
Think about who you’re shopping for and the best way to touch their hearts. This is not a time of competition, rather a time of togetherness.
Ontario Bakery is here to make your holidays even sweeter, so be sure to call us when you’re ready to reduce even more stress from your schedule and have your holiday cake custom made by us and for you. You won’t regret it. You deserve the best and that’s what we’re here for.
