Now that Halloween is officially behind us, it is time to think about Christmas and shopping for the perfect gift. If you are anything like us, you get excited about finding the right gift for every one on your list and that feeling of giddiness as you watch their face on Christmas morning is what the season is all about. How do you make sure your gift selections don’t miss the mark? You become a prepared shopper. Here are 4 tips for getting ready for the holidays, the right way.

1.     Make a List (and Check it Twice!)

Keeping lists at this time of year will really help you to stay focused (and on budget). It will also prevent you from stashing away presents and then forgetting what you bought (also a Christmas hazard). Write down everyone you have to buy for.

Here are a few ideas from Shoppers Drug Mart for everyone on your list:

Cool Kid

  • Acer 8" Tablet
  • Captain America Super Soldier Stealthfire Shield
  • La Ferrari 458 Spider Racing Wheel
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Combat Gear

Trendy Tot - Find the perfect gift for your energetic little elf

  • LeapFrog My Pal Scout
  • V-Tech Shake & Move Puppy
  • B. Wheels
  • Disney Frozen Olaf

And that big guy in your life? Here are some top picks for the Modern Man:

  • Fragrance Sampler & Certificate Collector’s Edition For Him (New & Exclusive)
  • Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean Power Toothbrush
  • Gillette ProGlide Holiday Pack
  • Sony Micro Hi-Fi Stereo
  • Jawbone UP24 Wristband
  • Shoppers Drug Mart Gift Cards

Don’t forget the people in your life who make every day easier: teachers, crossing guards, bus drivers and co-workers. They might enjoy:

  • Hershey Kisses Milk Chocolate
  • President’s Choice Mini Cheesecake Cupcakes with Chocolate Icing
  • Carnaby Sweet Luxury European Biscuit Collection
  • Simply Food Deluxe Mixed Nuts (Only at Shoppers)

2.     Make Use of Online Tools

Scout out what you want to buy, before you hit the store! Browse merchandise online or make use of tools like the new Shoppers Drug Mart GIFTS MADE EASY gift finder. You can filter by gift idea, price, category and gift recipient all for an amazing list of gift ideas that will surely please.

3.     Spread it Out

Though some of us have been known to do it all in just one day with lunch in between (hello December 24!) this strategy can often lead to impulse buys and gifts that are just not quite right. The best way is to pace yourself: take the remaining weeks until Christmas and divide up your list. Each week, give yourself specific goals to meet with a plan for how you will accomplish this. The bonus, it can also mean less of an impact on your pocket book if you are spreading out expenses. You can check out Holiday Gift Guides from Shoppers Drug Mart and use these as inspiration: “Give Beauty, beautyBOUTIQUE by Shoppers Drug Mart” releases available now, “Get Set for the Happiest Holidays!” releases November 15th and keep an eye out for 3 additional gift guides/beauty books available in late November and December. You can follow the excitement at #giftsmadeeasy on Twitter.

4.     Shop the Sales!

The wonderful advantage of starting early, pacing yourself and following a plan is that you can take advantage of sales. Watch for in-store specials, promotions and exclusive gift sets from Shoppers Drug Mart from November 12-December 25th. Don’t forget to take advantage of those Shoppers Optimum Points!
