How to Buy Gifts When You Hate to Shop

Rob McLean

Gifts and the giving of gifts: If you hate to shop, how do you buy gifts? 

If you hate to shop, there is nothing worse than going from store-to-storehoping to find a suitable gift. Your eyes glaze over after a few shops. Thenyou’ll probably buy the first trinket you see just to have a gift.

Share the Cost of the Gift
This is best way to shop when you hate shopping. Offer to pay for part (most) ofthe gift if the other person will buy it. Dirty pool, maybe, but it works wellwhen the other person loves to shop.

Shop for Gifts All Year
Maybe you do hate to shop but all of us have to shop at some time or the other.If you are in a store, anyway, even if it is the supermarket, keep your eyesopen for a gift. I found quite a few at my local supermarket last year. Youdon’t always have to know who will be the proud owner of this gift to buy it. Ifit is a neat gift, pick it up now.

Have a Spot to Stash Gifts
Have a place at home to stash gifts. That way you will be able to run to thisspot, and paw through your stash in a hurry when that wedding invitation arrivesin the mail.

Add to Your Gift Stash
Another way to add to your gift stash is to place all the presents people giveyou that you hate there. Just remember who gave you the gift and send it on to anew family or group. Best to make a list or label gifts in some way so theydon’t return to the same person or to another person when the original"gift-giver" is present.

Cultivate a Friend Who Is a Shopping Fool
Maybe you already know someone who loves to shop. Ask them to buy a gift or twofor you when they are out. They will probably love it. If all else fails, hire ashopping service.
