1 – Listen
Not sure what to get someone? Listen carefully and you might hear her say she loves the smell of lavender or that he loves a really sharp knife when preparing meals. Save that knowledge and surprise your loved one with the perfect gift.
2 – For homemade gifts, do a trial run first
Making gifts this holiday season? Good for you! Do a trial run just in case the first attempt doesn’t go well. Making candles or soap, baking a pie or creating a succulent garden—all are lovely ideas, but practice makes perfect.
3 – Shop on line early!
Trouble with supply chains, under-staffed carriers, and a busy holiday season could lead to shipping delays.
4 – Save money and time
Buy gifts at Lehmans.com but have them shipped directly to the recipient.
5 – Plan ahead
When buying hand-crafted items, don’t wait until the last minute as supplies may be limited.
6 – Can’t decide what to get?
We’ve curated a wide selection of quality gifts for all ages to simplify your holiday shopping.
7 – Make a list and a budget
Write down all the special people and the wonderful gifts you are going to buy them. Set a “not to exceed” dollar amount and stick to it!
8 – Consider an activity for your loved one instead of a gift
How about taking a class together, shopping for and preparing a nice meal, baking and decorating cookies, or attending a concert or a show?
9 – Let the pros help you pick!
10 – Consider gifts that donate back to a cause
We offer some of these great products online, like Lifestraw.
