Your 2020 Guide to Black Friday and Christmas Shopping on Amazon

I used Amazon to create a few holiday/every day wish lists so you wouldn’t have to, and I think you’re going to love them! Use this list before, during, and even after Black Friday to get Christmas gifts for your entire crew.

If you haven’t started Christmas shopping, what are you doing?

With the pandemic still looming over our heads, it’s not looking good for the “Last-Minute Shopper’s Union.” (You know who you are.)

Deciding when to start Black Friday planning

I’ve placed a few orders and gotten some delivery dates as late as November 22nd, and it’s still the first week of the month.  

I’ve noticed that many online fashion sites and shopping sites like Walmart and Amazon have started promoting Black Friday deals in increments throughout November. The savings and special deals vary based on the weekend you decide to participate, and honestly, that’s a relief for me.

Last year, I decided to spread out my shopping to spread out my month if you know what I’m saying. Using a micro-budget every month to purchase gifts leading up to December took a load of stress off of me. By the time Christmas rolled around, I still had the funds to buy myself a nice little Christmas gift. So, it’s only right that I share a few of my tips and tricks to making the most out of your holiday shopping fiasco.

5 Steps to help you make your Christmas gift list this holiday season

  1. Make a list of people you need to buy gifts for this holiday season. I even included my dog, Koda. Include everyone you can think of; this is your first draft. People can be dropped from this list later.
  2. Think of a number, any number, for a reasonable amount of money that you’d still be comfortable with spending by the time January rolls around. If you’re not trying to be sorry at the beginning of the year, this one’s for you.
  3. Review your list and start making mini budgets for each person’s present. I know that sounds rough, but it’s essential to keep you on track. A lot of times, we overlook the budget-friendly gifts because we don’t plan accordingly.
  4. Be realistic. Can you afford to buy all of these people presents? Do you need to make stocking stuffer gifts?
  5. Finalize your list. Nail down a budget. Allow as much wiggle room as you’re comfortable with.

Budget

My budget this year is $500 for my immediate family and my boyfriend’s immediate family. I’m dipping into my savings to buy myself a gift, but I’ve been saving for that since August, so I’m comfortable with making a big purchase outside of my budget.

What to buy?

I like to buy accessories and gadgets for people in my life. I’m a practical and observant gift giver. One thing my boyfriend noticed about me early on is that I give gifts that people didn’t know they needed, so it has a unique sentimental value because you know I’ve listened. Other times, I hear you mention things you’ve wanted for a while but didn’t think you’d ever get. I keep a running list of possible gift options for people I talk to on a daily basis for times like this.

I’ve made a few lists on Amazon to help you!
