For many cultures, the end of the year is a popular time for gift giving. But in between studying for final exams and solidifying travel plans, it may have been difficult for you to find the time to set up a holiday shopping trip. In addition to taking time, the process of finding the best gift for your friend or loved one can be an expensive task. If you haven’t started shopping yet, don’t worry. Here are some places to go to find gifts that may satisfy anyone’s wish list and save you money.
Amazon: Amazon.com offers shoppers access to a wide variety of goods ranging from books to electronics to clothing. By signing up for Amazon’s premium service, Amazon Prime, shoppers can get free shipping and other perks. Note: Amazon prime is a subscription service and will require an additional fee.
RetailMeNot: RetailMeNot.com provides coupon codes and sales information for many popular retailers, helping you find ways to save money on gifts and other purchases. Often, it is possible to avoid shipping costs and receive other discounts using the codes available on this site.
Your school’s bookstore: Consider sending a friend or loved one from back home a gift that is unique to your travels abroad. A small item from a local shop or a t-shirt or water bottle with your college or university logo will look awesome and inspire great stories about your international adventures.
With the constant ring of jingle bells filling the air, it is easy to get distracted. Remember: students should be focused on finishing the semester strong. These are just a few of the services last minute shoppers can turn to as they prepare for the holidays.
