Time Saving Holiday Shopping Tips for the Busy Bride

Shoes? Check. Invitations? Check. Bridal Shower? Check. Holiday shopping? Uh oh. If you're worried about the time crunch between now and the holidays or the thought of gift shopping in the midst of wedding planning is overwhelming, try these ideas.

Gift Cards: Okay. Not original or the most fun gift to give, but if you're really cutting it down to the wire and feeling stressed out, it's the best way to go. You can purchase them from the convenience of home while you're in your PJs if you have to. And there's practically a gift card for every need, so you won't find yourself frustrated at not finding the perfect gift for your best friend or your grandfather. If you usually give wrapped gifts, add a note letting people know that due to your busy wedding planning schedule, this year you'll be handing out gift cards but that you look forward to returning to your usual routine after the wedding.

Shop at One Location: Part of the hassle of gift buying is that different people like different things. That usually means having to frequent various stores to get something for everyone. Before you know it, an entire day has come and gone just traveling around from one place to the next. Do yourself a favor this year and pick one store that sells stuff for anyone, regardless of age or gender. Whether you decide on a bookstore, cooking store, or outdoor sporting goods center, get all your gifts at that once place. You can even let people know you'll have a theme this year. It'll definitely save you travel time and you can still come up with some creative gifts for everyone on your list.

Bake or Make Something Tasty: Everyone loves food. If you happen to be a talented chef or baker, this will be easy for you. Spend a couple hours baking cookies, brownies, or whatever else is easy to make in bulk. Or maybe you prefer preserving fruits or making chocolate. If you enjoy doing something, it won't feel like work to you. Outside of making the goodies, you will have to buy containers to deliver your treats in. But this truly is a gift of love for those you love.

Throw a Party: Feeling too busy or too tired to do any shopping or work? Invite those on your guest list out instead. Treat them to dinner, a game of bowling, or even a movie night. Aside from making the reservations and sending out a quick invite letting people know this treat will be in lieu of a wrapped gift this year, there's not much else you have to do. Show up, have fun, and pay for the bill. A night out gives you some down time without the wrapping paper or clean up.
