Whew! So much Holiday shopping has gotten a lot of us downright stressed and exhausted! Okay...Maybe not all of us. I personally prefer to avoid the hustle and bustle of the season by shopping online. I mean, I love seeing all of the hordes of seemingly insane shoppers getting into fist-fights over the last Furby just as much as the next person, but bringing 2 toddlers into the middle of shopping mayhem? Umm, no thanks! So I choose to do a huge portion of my gift shopping from the comfort of my own home. It's actually pretty stinking awesome. I can shop 24 hours a day, in my pajamas, and never have to stop to get gas in the car. Plus, online I always find fantastic deals. Often, they're better than any in-store sales you'd find at a brick and mortar retailer.
One of my favorite places to shop online? eBay! You see, while there are tons of auctions going on that will save crazy amounts of cash, eBay also has great NEW and Buy It Now options for those who don't like haggling. (Or don't have the patience to wait for an auction's end!)
So what can you find on eBay? Well...Everything but the kitchen sink. No, wait...They have that, too! Here's just a small sample of my eBay Holiday gift ideas for different friends and family members. Of course these are just ideas, not necessarily what I have actually purchased for them. Some of them might see this, and I don't want to ruin any surprises!
1.) My soon to be 13 year old REALLY wants an Apple iPad Mini. This is SO not happening, since Mommy's pockets aren't quite that deep! But I know it's on his wish list!
2.) I think Xander would love this Power Wheels Fisher-Price Lil Kawasaki Boys Sport Quad!
3.) Sophie would LOVE this VTech InnoTab Tablet Learning Bundle. Yes, the kids already have one...But they fight over it constantly, and well, this one is pink. Sophie would flip if she received this!
4.) My sister-in-law would LOVE these adorable UGG Boots!
5.) Okay, I need a new laptop. So I am putting myself on the gift list. I would be soooo happy if Santa left me this Acer Aspire Touchscreen Laptop!
6.) Okay, so this is my favorite perfume in the whole wide world, and it's getting harder and harder to find. However, eBay has Sicily by Dolce & Gabbana. And this would be for my step-mom, Missy!
7.) I would love to get this awesome Brave Merida Doll for my niece!
8.) I am pretty sure my Mom has mentioned more than a few times that she needs a new winter coat. This North Face Puffer Coat probably isn't her style, but I think it's cute!
9.) My husband would put me on a pedestal if I gave him this HUGE Samsung HDTV Bundle. There's a 75" monster as well as a much more practical 32" included. Again, my pockets aren't that deep. And it's probably a good thing, too, because if I gave this to Dan, he would never leave the couch!
10.) My Papa loves putting together various puzzles, when he's not busy golfing or bowling or romancing his 90 year old lady friends. This 2000 piece Ravensburger Puzzle would keep him busy for quite some time!
So if you couldn't tell, eBay has just the right gifts for everyone on your Holiday gift lists. Even your fur-babies! You can also check out their Holiday Gift Guide which is very well organized and can help find those gifts in no time flat. The best part? You never have to leave your couch! (Or get dressed, for that matter!) Here's to shopping in pajamas! Try it...You'll be hooked!
eBay has a great mobile app that lets you shop even while you're sitting in the doctor's waiting room, or anywhere else the day may take you.
You can follow ebay on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest, too!
