Holiday Wishlist

Are you starting to wrap your presents for the coming holiday? Christmas is almost coming! Many of us have wishlists this coming holiday season. It might be for our family, our friends, relatives or  maybe for  ourselves.  

I also have a holiday wishlist of my own. Here are some of it;

Tablet PC- This is one of the gadgets that I need especially when I travel. I have been planning to buy one this Christmas and I hope to  get one. I am just quite confused which brand to buy. Since I watched last month a review about the best  Tablet PC  on a TV program, I already have an idea what to buy. What do you think folks, an Apple Ipad, Google Nexus or Amazon Kindle? Any idea?

Digital Camera- I already have a lot of digital cameras including a DSLR one but I am still searching for a better one that is good in taking pictures with low light or during the night. More on that, a camera that can fit  in my pocket. When I went to Las Vegas and met a friend two months ago, I saw that her camera takes really great pictures with low light. It is also a handy camera. I wish I can get a Canon S95 or S100.

Office Chair- As a blogger who sits in front of the computer everyday, I really need good office chair. The seat cover of my chair is worn-out now and it really needs a replacement asap. I have an extra office chair but it is too big for my little working space.  I need one that will not make my back aches. I mean a comfortable and really a good quality one.

Printer- Another machine that I needed. Most of the times when I need something to be printed I ask a good friend to print it for me. Since she is going back to the US in a week, it is time for me to buy a printer.

These are only some of the things that are in my holiday wishlist. While browsing online to search for  these stuffs, I landed at  Viking website.  It is a global company  that sells office supplies of all kinds, gadgets and electronics, office furniture, gift items and many more.  I have fun  browsing their site because it is very easy to navigate.  Their prices are also very competitive.  Since they  are also based in the UK, it is an advantage for me to shop online in their site because  I no longer need to pay for Value added tax compared to buying outside of the European Union like in the USA. Shipping is also cheaper for me.   I also found some reasons why to shop in this store;  they simply have a range of quality products  of all kinds.

Window Shopping

How do you define window shopping? For sure, you know what shopping is. It is the examination of of goods or services with the intention of buying it at that time. Window shopping on the other hand is not shopping by looking at the window but you just want to look around and plan and decide if you are going to buy a certain good or product. It simply means looking around first and then decide whether to buy it or not in the future. That's how I understand. How about you? It is always nice to go shopping when money is available. Right ladies? Enjoy shopping. Anyway, I am trying to avoid shopping when I can. There are other priorities right now.

Where to Find Affordable Gift Ideas

With all the economic and financial crisis that the world is facing right now, most and maybe all people want to save every single penny in their pocket. We can't deny that especially that most goods and commodities are astronomically rising up at the moment. But I agree that there are always cheap shopping out there.

Sometimes, we have the difficulty of finding a perfect gift for someone who might be celebrating a special occasion. Whether it is your wife, husband, a friend, colleague or a relative who will be celebrating his/her birthday, wedding or anniversary, there are always affordable presents that will fit your budget. This is the reason why I am giving you some ideas on where and how to shop for affordable gift ideas.

Special offers

I believed most of us are shopping online nowadays. There are always special promotions online where you can find a lot of affordable goods to choose from. Subscribing a newsletter from an online shop is a good way to inform you of special offers. In this way, you are always updated of any products that are on sale. This might be a perfect as a gift for someone who celebrates a special occasion.

Seasonal Sales

I am always watching for winter and summer sales. These seasonal sales are always an advantage for those who want to save money. You can always get prices that are really very cheap. I did some winter sale shopping with my friends last January. It is not anymore a surprise for me to avail of cheap prices during this sale season. I am happy and satisfied for all the winter clothes and accessories that I bought. Imagine saving for up to 75% off, that is a lot of money. I am even saving the winter accessories as presents for the next Christmas time. This is one way of getting affordable gift ideas.


Visit a Supermarket or Mall

Two weeks ago, me and my friends went to the supermarket in the next city. Everyone was so happy with what they shopped because mostly are on sale. I did shopped for health and beauty products for my friends and family back home. I bought some bath soap, lotions, herbal bath, beauty soap and some fragrances which are mostly on sale.  Sometimes there are sales when you go to a store  like manager's special, clearance sale, etcetera.

Thrift Shops

Sometimes you are lucky to find unopened and unused goods in thrift shops for cheaper prices. I remember a friend who mentioned last time about exchanging of gifts for this year's Christmas. She said that we will buy the gifts at a thrift store and it cost at least 10.00 Euros. That is quite a good idea. For sure with this amount, you can already buy a lot of interesting stuffs. Sometimes you are lucky to find antique porcelain or ceramics which I also love.

Please be reminded to shop early for your presents to avoid stress and you sometimes save money for that. The earlier the better! It is always a nice feeling when you share or give something.
