Make Holiday Shopping Easy With These Last Minute Gift Ideas


Christmas will be here before we know it and if you still have shopping to do, Lifestyle and Trends Expert Justine Santaniello says there’s no need to panic.

“Don’t stress. Try to find an off-peak time to get into the stores and do your shopping, and do all of your research ahead of time online, so that when you do start to shop, you’re fully prepared,” Santaniello explained.

And fortunately, she has already done a lot of the research for you.

For example, one of the easiest ways to say Happy Holidays is with money and PayPal’s Holiday Money Habit Study shows that more than half of Americans would rather have money than a traditional gift.

So PayPal created six limited-edition, person-to-person holiday greetings to make the gift of money personal and festive. All you have to do is log-in to your PayPal account, click send money, designate the recipient and amount, choose your holiday greeting, add your personal note and hit send!

Santaniello also shares the perfect gifts for the gadget lovers and gamers with items like the Samsung Portable SSD T5 and the “Mario and Rabbids Kingdom Battle” video game.

And you can get all these things on sale by shopping at Target more than 70 exclusive board games to choose from with everything from classic retro, like Scrabble and Operation, to 90s throwbacks like Bob Ross and the Oregon Trail.

And if you have a toddler in the family, “Tumble Into Playtime – The Mega Bloks Elephant Parade” is the perfect go-to.

With tips like these, it’s never been easier to shop for the holidays. Be sure to watch the full segment below or see it air across the globe on California Life with Heather Dawson.
