Days of Dora: Giftmas ali kako se pametno lotiti prazničnih nakupov

[:en]

We sailed slowly into my favorite month, December. Christmas, my birthday, holidays wrapped in the arms of my loved ones and the now traditional Christmas trip – who wouldn’t like all that? I do have tons of work here on Dora Ward, since I’m doing 12 days of Dora, which is my kind of blogmas, reflecting on the year and everything I achieved and want to achieve in the new decade coming soon. This year I’ve been a thoughtful gift buyer than previously…I will show you today how I did it and give you some ideas for this years’s presents.

 

This year I planned to buy more gifts online than in stores themself. Why? Because that way I have a complete overview of my basket because of all the discounts and I can see how much money I save and spend. I ordered some stocking fillers and beauty bits for Black Friday already.

Firstly, I made tons of post-it notes on my Google Keep. Later I labeled the notes on what to give everyone. I waited until Friday when the discounts were highest, but I did my research beforehand and save everything I wanted in favorites. Then, on Black Friday, I removed sold items from the favorites and selected the ones I wanted. If I picked something I didn’t have on my list, I replaced it in my Google Keep so I didn’t but tons of things I didn’t plan to.

My friends and I decided not to give presents on St.Nicholas this year and get only Christmas presents, so I saved some extra money. However, we give presents for St. Nicholas in my family, so I got only some small things for my mom and dad.
I took the list seriously and avoided extra spending. I got quite a few questions on what I want for Christmas and birthday, but I didn’t have a list so I didn’t have an answer. I put together my Christmas wishlist only a few days ago and you can see it on my first blog page under My Christmas wishlist. You can also help yourself with that if you don’t know what to buy for the ladies in your life.

Because I know a lot of my readers don’t have a clue on what to get for their friends, family, and significant others and then their man reads my post since she has it open on her PC, I made lists for both genders, for couples that live together, mothers, dads, boyfriends of even yourself. I’ll take you through the lists:

  1. Giftmas for her

 

2.  Giftmas for him

 

3. Giftmas for couples:

 

4. Giftmas for your bestie:

 

To each gift I add something sweet, usually some Lindt chocolate candy or some booze, like a fancy gin. This year, I decided to pack everything in these IKEA gift bags, which are wonderful and affordable.

I’m really interested in what are you going to get for your loved ones, especially for your significant others and dads – I’m often without ideas here. I’m looking forward for the comments down below :)[:si]

Počasi smo zajadrali v december, moj naljubši mesec. Božič, rojstni dan, prazniki v objemu mojih najljubših in tradicionalno praznično “potovanje” – komu se ne bi zašibila kolena ob vsem tem? Mesec nabit z delom na Dori Ward, premišljevanju o novem letu in vsem, kar si želim narediti in doseči in pregled vsega, kar sem doživela letos. Priznam, da sem se letos obdarovanja lotila malce bolj premišljeno kot prejšnja leta…Pokažem vam, kako sem se znašla letos in vam ponudim nekaj idej za obdarovanje.

Letos sem se kupovanja daril lotila bolj preko spleta kot v fizičnih trgovinah. Zakaj? Ker imam popoln pregled nad “košarico”, ker obstaja veliko popustov in ker lahko sproti vidim, koliko denarja porabim. Nekaj malenkosti, “stocking fillers” kot bi rekli Američani in nekaj lepotnih drobižkov sem naročila ŽE za Black Friday.

Najprej sem si v Google Keep naredila toliko post-it listkov, kot potrebujem daril, nato pa z oznakami spisala listič, kaj bi komu podarila.Počakala sem petek, ko so bili popusti najvišji, pred tem pa v svoje najljubše naložila izdelke, ki bi jih želela. Nato sem na Črni petek iz košarice izločila že prodane in med ostalimi izbirala najboljše. Če sem kaj izbrala prek spleta namesto nečesa, kar je bilo na seznamu, sem to pobrisala in napisala stvar, ki sem jo kupila. Tako sem se znebila kupovanja tistočih stvari.

Letos smo se s prijatelji odločili, da spustimo Miklavževanje in si omislimo bolj božična darila, kar mi je prineslo dodaten denarnični plus. Vseeno se v naši družini minimalistično obdarujemo tudi na Miklavža, tako da sem nekaj malenkosti pripravila samo za družino. Seznam sem vzela resno in preprečila neprimerno zapravljanje. Dobila sem kar nekaj vprašanj, kaj si želim za Božič in rojstni dan, kaj potrebujem in kaj naj mi kupijo, na kar odgovora nisem imela pripravljenega. Šele pred nekaj dnevi sem sestavila seznam, ki sem ga objavila tudi na moji naslovni blog strani pod imenom My Christmas wishlist. S tem si lahko pomagate tudi sami, če niste prepričani, kaj bi kupili svojim ženskam.

Ker pa vem, da je med mojimi bralkami veliko takšnih, ki nimajo idej za svoje boljše polovice, potem pa jim fant še malce vzame računalnik in preveri, kaj berejo, sem pripravila sezname za oba spola, pa še enega takšnega, v katerem so stvari, ki jih lahko kupiš za svoje prijatelje, ki že živijo skupaj, za starše in fantove družine, morda najdete kakšno uporabno stvar tudi zase. Sedaj vas popeljem čez sezname:

  1. Lista daril zanjo

 

2.  Lista daril zanj

 

3. Lista daril, primernih za oba:

 

4. Lista daril, primerna za tvojo najljubšo prijateljico:

 

Vsakemu darilcu dodam še nekaj sladkega, ponavadi kakšne Lindt čokoladne bombone, vedno pa pride prav tudi kakšna alkoholna kapljica, npr. malo dražja steklenica gina, za tiste, ki ga obožujejo/mo. Letos sem se odločila, da bom vsa darila spakirala v Ikejine darilne vreče, ki so čudovite in cenovno ugodne.

Res me zanima, kaj boste kupili letos za darila, še posebej za svoje očete in boljše polovice – tukaj sem pogosto brez idej. Veselim se komentarjev :)[:]
