7 Ways To De-Stress Your Christmas Shopping List
11 Dec 2015
While Christmas is meant to be the season of joy and happiness, over-spending, cranky customers and unwanted pressure to get everything done, can surely take away from seeing what's really important. But why should we let that happen? After all, Santa only comes around once a year and it's time to celebrate life with your loved ones. For finding a jollier you, here are our top 7 ways for how to de-stress your Christmas shopping.
1. Make a list of people you wish to gift to this Christmas
Simply grab a pen and a piece of paper, write down a list of the people you would like to shop for, and then beside each person's name, jot down some bullet points about things that they like.
2. Finalise Your Checklist
Now that you've organised your checklist of the people you would like to shop for and things that they are interested in, you'll then be able to clearly pinpoint the sort of gifts they would want. After confirming a gift or gifts for each person, you'll need to figure out where you'll go and roughly how much you'll need to spend.
3. Buy A Gift Card
Don't get overworked by not finding the "perfect" gift for that special someone, because naturally, it's impossible to please everyone but it's the thought that counts, right? That's why, Gift Cards prove a great alternative to buying an actual present and if you're tight on time, they're also a fast and easy buy.
4. Plan A Christmas Lunch
You can always count on a good meal or a nice beverage to calm your nerves and put your mind at ease. Take a break from your Christmas shopping whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner with our Christmas Food Guide.
5. Book Your Parking Online and Save
Avoid the hassle and torment of driving around the parking lot in circles, because we all know how chaotic it can be around Christmas time. At Chevron Renaissance, you can book parking in advance, by visiting online here. And if you don't book online, for finding parking more easily, we suggest heading to the outer areas of the car park or the lower basement for more likely spots. Lucky for you, your first 2 hours of parking at Chevron is free. For more parking rates and further details, head here.
6. Avoid Crowds
Why rush into the madness? Specialty stores at Chevron are open until late everyday, providing you the unrestrained freedom to shop within more flexible hours not just during Christmas, but also all year round! Save yourself the headache of rushing, and head on over after you finish work or on the weekends at a later hour.
