Christmas has arrived. It's a time for spending time with your loved ones, eating food until you need to take a nap and having a good holiday break.
And… it's the start of the shopping season. It's time to start stressing about all the gifts you need to purchase for your loved ones, a task that can be daunting at times. Between trying to find a parking spot at the shopping centre, being shoved around in long queues and waiting for presents to be delivered from online orders, Christmas shopping just isn't fun.
Well put your stress to rest as we have performed a Christmas miracle with the hacks to target your Christmas shopping list in no time.
Shopping doesn't always need to be expensive. In November, there are some pretty big shopping events such as Singles Day, Click Frenzy, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. These events always feature huge discounts on a variety of items, so why not be organised and prepare your Christmas shopping before December hits? It may seem too early for some, but trust us, the deals that come around during this time are not a usual occurrence and they could end up saving you money.
Many workplaces roll out a Secret Santa/Kris Kringle system so the entire office doesn't have to buy gifts for each person, otherwise it could get very expensive very quickly. Why not follow suit and implement Kris Kringle in your family or group of friends? If you've got a big family or group, it makes sense to use this kind of system so everyone gets something thoughtful and personal. Setting a price limit for gifts helps benchmark the kind of presents everyone will get, no stress with over or under spending on gifts.
Online shopping has many perks, but it also has one major downside: shipping times. If you leave it until the last minute, you might find your item won't be delivered in time and nobody wants to sit there at Christmas explaining that their present is 'on its way'. We recommend stores like Target Australia and David Jones. Or, check out our list of stores in Australia that offer a click and collect service.
Don't let being unsure of someone's size stop you from buying their gift online – retailers like New Balance and THE ICONIC offer free returns, so you can buy both sizes and return the one you don't want for free! This may sound sneaky but it helps get your Christmas shopping done. Nowadays, most stores offer great size guides so you can take a look at what the person already owns and work it out from there.
Christmas is about spending time with your family and friends. Most of us are celebrating the festivities a few days after the December 25, because there is no way you can see everyone in the one day. For those loved ones you are seeing after Christmas Day, play it smart and shop their presents during the Boxing Day sales. Nobody can catch you out being very last minute, so why not take advantage of the discounts on stores like Myer and eBay.
If you are STILL unsure of how to smash out your Christmas shopping list, bulk buy your presents and then take advantage of the extended return policies that the holiday season blesses us with. That's right, most stores extend their return policy during Christmas until the end of January. This gives you plenty of time to decide what to buy your loved ones, and if they don't like it or if it doesn't fit them, you can return it without a worry. We recommend stores such as Princess Polly, ASOS and THE ICONIC for an extended return policy.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
