Holiday Shopping Tips

The holiday season is here again! Christmas is next week and for all of you last minute shoppers, now is your time to shine. Shopping for Christmas presents can be stressful. You may be struggling with what gifts to buy. You may have people in your family who are difficult to buy for or you may just be getting stressed out due to the short amount of time left. Don't worry, our bank at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to give you some helpful holiday shopping tips.

Holiday Shopping Tips

Holiday Shopping Tip # 1

Make a list.

Even though it's the last minute, you can still be organized. Make a list of the gifts you know you need to buy and stick to your list. Don't forget the non family members you need buy for, such as your babysitter, co-workers, or close friends.

Holiday Shopping Tip # 2

Don't underestimate gift cards.

Gift cards can be a great choice for those people in your family who are hard to buy for. Just figure out the stores they really like and purchase a gift card to one of those stores. Not only do gift cards allow your family members to buy what they want, but they are very easy to pack and wrap.

Holiday Shopping Tip # 3

Save your receipts!

It can be a good idea to save your receipts. For example, if you buy one of your family members a sweater and it doesn't fit, they can take it back and exchange it for one that does.

Holiday Shopping Tip # 4

When in doubt, be creative.

If you are questioning what gift to buy for one of your loved ones, just be creative. It's the thought that counts. Think about some of the best gifts you have received in the past, perhaps it was a handwritten list of reasons you are the best mom or a scrapbook filled with memories of one of the best family vacations you ever took. Those types of gifts can really warm your heart.
