12 days left until the most holly night of the year. If your like me and you havent even started your christmas shopping, never fear there are many ways to get around to it, without having to suffer the idea of showing up empty-handed to your friend’s or family’s Christmas events. It’s all in the store planning, and of course without having to spend outside your christmas budget. To add, if smart enough to tackle the idea of budget shopping, you don’t have to surrender to Super Center madness, you know with those clawing and brawling shoppers, yikes! So in light of the countdown to christmas, I have decided to help my fellow readers in a last minute gift guide of shorts, in order to help everyone snag that perfect gift in time and on trend, with this seasons must haves.
One can always have taste when shopping on a budget, Case in Point, One idea to escape the madness of christmas shopping is to tackle the elusive high-end stores. Sure I know what your thinking, whats a person like myself or yourself doing in a high-end store when shopping on a budget, well #1 there’s never a crowd and #2 they got amazing holiday FAB-ness under $100 !
High End stores, You know, those places that seem to intimidate everyone from going inside and taking a look, hence never having a crowd. Well, that intimidation factor can be used to your advantage, be the smart person and hit those stores 1st. Although fashion meccas these stores are, they all have oh so fab holiday merchandise that is enough to tickle anyones fancy.
I strolled in this past weekend to take a peek, Megan the most helpful Bendel Girl, filled me in on all the hot items. Bendel Charm necklaces will for sure make any bendel girl cheerful. However the gifts I was looking for are more office based, I stated to my Bendel Girl of the moment, and of course her attention was turned to the candle wall, as well as the Desk Dairies that could make anyone a social butterfly just to have something write in it. Best Part of all these gift ideas, all under $100. In fact Megan was so kind in giving me a gift of my very own, a step by step Henri Bendel Gift Guide Booklet of all items $150 or less. The perfect Stocking Stuffer handbook you can say.
Herni Bendel NorthPark Center is a must visit if your pressed for time, don’t fall victim to the idea that there isn’t any good stuff left, Bendel’s is loaded with goodies, they even have a giant Bendles Peanut Butter Cup, “I mean come on, that’s awesome”. So stop in and ask for Megan to fill you in, possibilby fill your brown and white striped stockings.
