With the holidays quickly approaching, many of us (me included) are now having to scramble a little for Christmas gifts. I have been putting all of my money towards the trips I have planned this year, and am now finally able to get my Christmas shopping done. This scramble is made so much easier with online shopping. There are certain go-to stores I alway shop from when it comes to online holiday shopping. You avoid the crowds and the traffic. You also have a guarantee (well, mostly) of your desired item being available and in stock.
One of the most obvious places to shop is Amazon. Most everything can be found on Amazon. I am actually getting most gifts from here this year. The only problem you can stumble into with Amazon is that it’s not very niche, so if you don’t know what to buy, it can be overwhelming. If you do know what you are getting someone, Amazon is perfect. Books, clothes, accessories, and merchandise can be found easily.
For the Book Worms
The Bookish Shop is one of my absolute favorites to shop for fandom tees, mugs, loungewear, prints, and even stationary. They have all of the latest trending merch and not the cookie-cutter styles you are used to. Another shop that is great is The Common Room, which is catered more to Harry Potter fans, but no less cool. Their styles are so unique and trendy and give you the merch you want to represent without it looking like merch. I love the style of merch that only fans of the fandomn will understand what your article of clothing means. They also have Twilight, ACOTAR, Narnia, and Little Women merch.
For Something Crafty
Etsy is the perfect place to start for something crafty and unique. Do keep in mind that ordering from Etsy can sometimes mean a longer delivery, so keep an eye out on the delivery date before purchasing. I love to get unique bookshelf decor from Etsy such as potion bottles, fun bookmarks, and art prints. I even have a pair of Mickey Ears that have the Marauder’s Map on them – the best of both worlds!
For the Bougie One
VIEVE is a makeup brand that is coming up on its one year anniversary. This is a makeup brand created and run by Jamie Genevieve a makeup guru on YouTube. I got her Essential Eyeshadow Pallet and some lipsticks and lipliners for Christmas last year (per my Christmas list) and her products are honestly so good. If you need further proof, go watch a recent makeup tutorial and I can almost guarantee you she is using her own products for a majority of the look. This is another one that needs to be watched for delivery time since all products ship from the UK.
