Whether you love or hate holiday shopping, and there’s usually no in-between, we’ve got surefire motivation to get you started early. Take the one-for-me, one-for-them approach! Combine the gift shopping process with your own fall shopping. Going gaga over sweaters? When you buy one for yourself, grab some in your friends’ sizes and best colors. When you pick out your new autumn lipstick or nail color, buy multiples for stocking stuffers for your sister or Mom. Not only will you be checking items off your list before you even write it, your bank account won’t be overwhelmed by purchases come December.
