With Christmas approaching shops get very full. This can make the shopping experience very unpleasant. There is almost nothing you cannot buy online these days, so that you should buy as much as you can online. This saves you significant time instead of standing in traffic jams, searching for a parking lot, queueing at the cashier, etc.
You can spend this time with your beloved or to think of some creative ideas. If you need the inspiration from walking the shops you can also use some mail order catalogues or magazines to get some ideas.
