'Tis The Season... To Shop!

I didn't participate in the craziness that was Black Friday. I never do. There's just something about heading out at an extremely early hour to load up on things... the day after I give thanks for all that I'm grateful for. But I know that many folks get their holiday shopping done that day.

Not me.

While I love me some shopping (duh... did I even have to mention that?!), I don't always like holiday shopping. In fact, I love to do most of it online. That way, I avoid the crowds in NYC and spend my free time loving up Aiden and actually enjoying the magic that is NYC around this time of the year.

For us, it's the most wonderful time of year, indeed.

Which is yet another reason I'm thankful for all things eBay. I'm using the eBay Holiday Gift Shop this year to get my holiday shopping done, not only because eBay has a lot of new items that's already on my holiday list, but also because I can score them for up to 85% off of the retailed price.

But wait. There's more.

Users can create gift lists (that no one else will be able to see!), create toy lists for the kids on your list who have been "nice," not "naughty" this year, and get awesome recommendations from eBay experts.

But wait. There's more. The plot thickens.

You can access the eBay Holiday Gift Shop from your smartphone, which only means one thing: you can shop anywhere, anytime.

And... if you're stuck and need a little inspiration on what to get folks, you can use the eBay Holiday Gift Guide to help you out. (I used it last year and it had/has pretty good suggestions on it.)

The Sweepstakes:
Anyone who uses the Gift Shop to create their gift list will be entered for a chance to win an item off their list. How's that for cool?! Participants will also be eligible to win eBay gift cards (which, I know you like more than a little bit).

The deets:
The Holiday Gift Shop promotion will end at 11:59:59 PM PT on December 21st, but since there will be daily winners, don't wait too long to enter. Actually, just head on over and enter now.

Happy holiday shopping!

  1. 85% off? See THAT is my kind of shopping. And I HATE shopping and being able to get it done on the phone or laptop without having to deal with lines and BS is right up my alley.


  2. I do most, if not all of my shopping online year round. I hadn't even thought about eBay. At up to 85 percent off... you have my attention! lol!

  3. I love Ebay AND Amazon. I do online shopping as well. Shopping the stores around this time is suicide. I'm good.
    I usually leave Christmas for my daughter. She gets a kick out of the holiday.

  4. Yes, I don't do that Black Friday craziness either. I love shopping on eBay. You'd be amazed how much cheaper you can get gifts from your favorite brands that have eBay stores.

  5. I do most of my shopping online and I use Ebay. Looks like a great fit!


I love reading what you have to say!
