Have you already bought the Christmas gifts? If you did not do it, you cannot miss this note, where Abel Prasad give you some tips to buy and we tell you how much Latin Americans are planning to spend this year.
>> I SET A BUDGET
First of all, it is important that you feel to think about how much money you want to allocate for each gift. This way, you will know what you can buy and what not, and also in what aspects you could reduce your budget.
>> AVOID PEAK HOURS AND THE LAST DAYS
While it is likely that the days closest to Christmas are more free, it would be better to try to buy the gifts before and at a busy time to avoid moments of stress.
>> DO NOT SPEND MORE THAN YOU SHOULD
No matter how good your intention is, it is important that you take care of your pocket and not make excessive expenses. Think of the consequences that this excess can bring.
>> WHAT COUNTS IS THE INTENTION
Despite what many people think, a good gift does not have to be expensive, since it is not a proof of the money we have. After all, what is worth is the intention.
>> EXPLOIT YOUR TALENT
When you start making calculations you are likely to start considering the possibility of making some gifts with your own hands. Take this opportunity to test your talent and your manual skills.
>> I ASKED FOR ADVICE
If you do not have much idea of what to give to your loved ones, do not hesitate to ask them what gift they would like Santa Claus to bring them.
>> PUT YOURSELF IN PLACE
The best way to find the right gift for each of your loved ones is to think about the things that that person would like to have and that you may need to specify, in advance. Take a few minutes to think about each one.
MAKE A LIST
Having the amount of gifts you have to buy in writing can be a very good way to not forget any. It would also be good to think in advance about what you could give to each one.
