Are any of you other mommas totally stressing over the rapid outbreak of holiday EVERYTHING in stores right now?
My husband swears that my alter ego is Mrs. Claus but even with my excitement growing for the upcoming holiday season, the pressure is on to find the perfect gifts (preferably before December 24th) and stay on budget.
Challenge accepted! And…I’m even going to share a few of my holiday shopping secrets with you to help take the frenzy out of the festivities this season.
Break out the Holiday TangerStyle Magazine and Gift Guide
Seriously the best thing ever! Not only does the guide have all the season’s hottest trends, the gift guide has ideas for everyone. If your littles decided to work their Crayola magic on your copy, you can find all of the holiday gift ideas on Tanger’s Pinterest page too!
Efficiency is Key to Stress-Free Shopping
This may be stating the obvious for you busy moms but choose a shopping destination where you can check the most gifts off your list in one place. For me, that means a trip to Tanger.
Hey, I didn’t get the Tanger Mom title without good reason. 😉
They’ve got ALL the top brands I want in one location AND (most importantly) at 40-70% off full retail.
Scout Out the Deals
Do a little pre-shopping recon work to find the best deals. Check for online coupons, special offers in your mobile app and other applicable discounts throughout the season and plan your shopping trip around those sales and redemption dates.
For you serious gift giving mavens, I highly recommend joining TangerClub for the special flash offers throughout the season and rewards program.
Rewards for shopping. Yes, please!
AND – you can gift a lucky someone on your list (hello, Mom) with a TangerClub membership. How sweet would that be?
Let the Littles in on the Fun
Tis the season to spread the joy and cheer. In my family, this means letting my kids help pick out gifts for each other and our family members.
That said, a kid-friendly destination is a must. One guess as to where I take them…
The whole Tanger shopping experience, from the play grounds and activities to the family lounges makes it completely doable with the littles in tow. Just trust me on this one!
