Today I’m sharing a holiday shopping trick I implement every year. I buy great items in bulk and stock my gift closet with ‘general’ gifts. Let me tell you why this will always pay off in spades. It will also save you in case you have an uh-oh moment.
I define ‘general’ gifts as those that will work for anyone or most people on your list. They are just great items that anyone would love, including myself. I buy them in bulk and keep them in my gift closet. When I start wrapping gifts, I also wrap these and put a post-it note on the back and tag the package with the exact contents. That way if someone shows up to your holiday gathering and you forgot to get them a gift, you will always have something amazing on hand.
My gift closet includes many Nest and Lafco candles and various scents, the O-venture key rings in several colors, Glamboxes Glamboard, Tata Harper gift set, gloves, great bottles of wine, candied pecans and spicy nut mixes and bespoke napkins. They other good news is that these make great birthday gifts too so they are not holiday specific. Keep your gift closet stocked year-round. Life saver, I tell you!
Do you have a gift closet? What do you keep in it? xoxo – Tanya
