2017 Holiday Gift Guide from the Pajama Company

Ultimate Holiday Gift-Giving Strategy: The ‘2-Stop Shop’

It feels like Labor Day was only yesterday and yet somehow we’ve managed to fast forward through Halloween, blast past Thanksgiving, and Christmas is just around the corner?! Begin the annual lies: “I’m going to get my Christmas shopping done early this year” and “I’ll have the gifts wrapped by the end of November…” Sound familiar?

These are the lies we tell ourselves until mid-December when we end up on an aimless 10-hour Saturday mall run, buying whatever wrapping paper is left at Rite Aid, and giving at least six people on our list Starbucks gift cards. Hey, we’ve all been there. That’s why we’ve decided to help you out with a new strategy: The ‘2-Stop Shop.’

One part Cyber Monday and one part last-minute drugstore run, this strategy is designed to personalize the bejeezus out of your Cyber Monday haul for easy, thoughtful, personalized gifts for everyone on your list.

Step 1: Pick a Theme

Pick one theme for your holiday gifting and splash it across your entire list. By choosing a theme you will shop at one store for everyone, eliminating the dreaded Saturday-in-December-mall-crawl. For example, if your theme is outdoors, you might shop for everyone at Cabela’s. If your theme is foodie, you might browse Williams-Sonoma. You can also shop at a convenient catchall store like Target and use the theme to narrow your focus.

Step 2: Make Your List + Browse Cyber Monday Deals

By Black Friday most stores offer previews of their Cyber Monday deals. Browse and bookmark so you’re ready to go when the sales start. Cyber Monday is an excellent alternative to avoid the crushing crowds and stress of Black Friday. Additionally, if you do all your shopping in one place, you will probably meet the minimum amount to qualify for free shipping, so it won’t cost you anything extra to shop from the comfort of your home.

Step 3: Purchase + Personalize

Once you’ve made your purchases, personalize each gift with a trip to your local drugstore or dollar store. Pick up your wrapping paper and gift bags and throw in a couple little things for each person to create a thoughtful touch. Is your theme foodie? Pick up a funny apron for dad to go with that set of gourmet marinades. Use festive ribbon to tie a cookie cutter to the baking cookbook you got for your sister. Toss chocolate Santas into gift bags for your nieces and nephews. Pick up little trinkets that have special meaning or relate to inside jokes you have with friends. Have fun with it!
