Gift Guide: Why it’s Never too Early to Start Christmas Shopping

Thank you to Uncommon Goods for Sponsoring this post, Gift Guide: Why it’s Never too Early to Start Christmas Shopping. Thank you all for supporting the brands that make Running in Heels possible.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t even begin to think of Christmas until after Halloween, after Thanksgiving, usually! I’m a terrible procrastinator with just about everything, so whenever possible I try to get ahead of things. It is so much less stress to shop ahead of time, and be prepared when December rolls around! Believe me, it’s never too early to start Christmas shopping! The one year that I did shop ahead of time, it was the smoothest holiday season by far! I’m getting my Christmas shopping started early this year, and Uncommon Goods is helping me out!

Why it’s Never too Early to Start Christmas Shopping

  1. Less Stress: No more scrambling at the last minute, you can actually enjoy the holiday parties! That one person you can never figure out what to get? More time! That random thing you grandfather always needs? Taken care of. Uncommon Goods has the coolest and most unique gifts for everyone on your list, including that special guy! It’s not too early to start Christmas shopping, so click here and get to it!
  2. Increased prices: Black Friday and early Christmas sales are definitely ones to take advantage of but, it’s my experience that recently, sales before Thanksgiving are actually better than sales on Black Friday. If you sign up for Uncommon Goods email list and get wind of their secret sales!
  3. Time to find those unique gifts: Those gifts that you always want to surprise your family with, but can never find? Done! I’m always hunting down something that I can never name or put my finger on, but know I want to find. I have the most amazing family and friends, and something material never feels like enough, but something unique is better than an unwanted sweater.

Since it’s never too early to start Christmas shopping, I’m starting right now! Here’s my gift guide from Uncommon Goods!

    I feel like shopping for Christmas early saves so much time and energy!! I’m notorious for waiting until the last minute, but not this year!

    I already finished my Christmas shopping! I start in August and get things on sale or wait for coupons/sales. It’s never too early!

    I can’t remember the last time I actually Christmas shopped. I always just give everyone money or gift cards and let them get what they want. I’m too lazy to shop for anyone else haha!

    I’m more of a last minute shopper, but maybe I should try “the early bird gets the worm” deal this time around. Like you said, there’s way less stress. I need to go before Thanksgiving this year!
