With two very little children it’s fair to say organising myself for Christmas this year has been a challenge! Getting a double buggy around the shopping centre with two grumpy toddlers and a hoard of shopping bags is really not my idea of fun so this year I’ve turned to Amazon to make my Christmas super simple. Amazon isn’t just a handy place to order gifts but can be used in so many more ways to make your big day go as smoothly as possible, I don’t know what we did without it! Here are a few ways I’ve been using the Amazon online platform this year….
Order decorations, wrapping paper and cards
Amazon really is a one-stop shop, not only can you order all your presents for all the family, but remember to pop all the other essentials in the basket too like Christmas cards, wrapping paper tags and don’t forget a box of crackers too! They really do have everything you could think of and more. I often find the ‘recommended products’ section helpful as it reminds me of similar items I hadn’t thought of!
We’ve been inundated with texts and phone calls asking what the girls would like for Christmas. Thinking up present ideas on the spot can be tricky, especially not knowing the budget someone wishes to spend on the gift. Putting together a wishlist is a perfect way to give friends and families lots of options on a range of gifts of all shapes, sizes and budgets, plus then you know you’ll receive presents you actually want and need too!
Fast delivery on presents
If you have Amazon Prime you can get next-day delivery so even if you’ve forgotten an essential, they’ve got you covered right up until the big day! I’m not sure it would be Christmas without a last minute panic order! The delivery drivers must be as busy as Santas elves on Christmas eve!
Give the gift of a voucher, audiobooks and music
Not all gifts are physical, what do you get for the person who has everything? A voucher is perfect for those with trickier tastes so they can chose something themselves, or you could give someone a subscription to Audible or Amazon Music too.
Excellent customer service
If you need help at any time with your purchases on Amazon, you can rest assured that by calling the Amazon contact number you can receive help for all aspects of buying and selling on Amazon. If you are waiting for your purchases to arrive or have a problem with your order they will be there to help in a flash, you can organise replacements, refunds and more all through their Customer Services centre who have been brilliant every time I’ve contacted them.
