Do Holiday Shopping the Right Way this Winter
Holiday shopping can be a pain if you leave everything until the last minute. There are many ways you can get ahead of the holiday shopping madness so that you can be best prepared when Christmas comes around. Here are Seven Ways to Beat The Holiday Shopping Frenzy:
Make a Plan of Attack
Organization is key for your holiday shopping. Make a list for people you plan on buying for, and what gift would be ideal for them. By having a list to refer to, this should cut your shopping time down.
Set Up Your Wrap Zone
You will also want to be organized when it comes to gift wrapping. Pick up gift wrap, tape, and any accessory you’ll need before you shop, and set up an area where you can do your gift wrapping.
Find Your Hiding Spots
When you’re at home, be sure to seek out the best hiding spots for your gifts. If you really want to take your gift giving to the next level, plant decoy gag gifts in obvious locations to pull a fast one on the people you are buying gifts for.
Plan Ahead Your Shopping Trip
Decide where the best shopping destination will be to buy all your gifts. Once you decide this, pick a date and time for when you are going. There are many shopping locations in Kelowna, Vernon, Salmon Arm, Cranbrook, and Nelson, and we have a hotel in each one of these spots. Also, guests can stay with us if they’re en route to a larger hub like Vancouver or Calgary.
Book a Mini Retreat
Shopping can be an exhausting venture. To give yourself a break, book yourself in a mini retreat while you’re shopping. Choose from great holiday packages at any Prestige location or take advantage of our Stay & Shop deals in Kelowna and Nelson. Each is a steal of a deal!
Leave out the Parking
Parking can be an added expense to your parking trip. In Kelowna, there is easy access to public transit while shopping, or your can park at our hotel if you’re staying with us, which is a short walk to downtown. In Nelson, both our hotels are a close walk to the downtown shopping district, so you won’t have to worry about parking.
Hang on to your Holiday Cheer
There is no doubt that your shopping spree is going to be a busy one. You can rest easy knowing you have a comfortable guest room waiting for you at the end of the day – and better still, at an unbeatable deal when you stay with Prestige!
