How do you holiday? Are you a last minute shopper or do you shop all year? No matter who you have left to shop for, Westfield Brandon has got you covered! With tons of store selections and many restaurants to take a lunch or dinner break, you will be done in no time flat! Here are my tips to get in and out with the holiday shopping and save as well!
Dedicate a block of day or full day to attack your holiday shopping. This will give you time to linger if you are looking for inspiration.
Start your day early. With less crowding, you will get in and out of stores faster.
Purchase discounted gift cards to your favorite stores at the mall. This way you save before you even get in the door!
Sign up for emails for your favorite stores. You will be the first to get notified of a sale or coupon.
Make a list of who you need to shop for and what types of items you are seeking out.
Set a budget and stay focused.
Create a list of information about each of your recipients if you might be purchasing clothes or shoes. This will save you time from needing to call around and get it on the spot.
Many stores are going to give you perks for shopping. From discounted prices to free items.
File all your receipts in case you need to make an exchange or return. Most stores print the deadline for both on the receipts.
Take a break. Grab a snack, eat a meal, just sit down for a bit. Shopping could be considered a sport with the way it can get during the holiday season.
Have fun. Nothing else is going to matter at the end of the day, other than you had fun and made memories. We started with a visit to Santa and pit stopped at the children’s play area.
