How to Avoid Christmas Rush

How to Avoid Christmas Rush

The gift-giving season is here and no one can stop the Christmas rush. However, it can still be avoided. Despite all the heavy road traffic, crowded malls, and holiday delivery delays, there are still ways to get your gifts packed and ready before Christmas day. All you need is a very organized time management and Transportify, the best courier in the Philippines.

Plan everything

Before you go rushing into malls for gift shopping, it is better to first make a list of the items you want to buy as gifts. Plan what gifts you intend to buy and the possible stores where you might find them. This is helpful as the list will save time during shopping. With a list, you do not have to waste time trying to remember what items to buy or in finding the store where they could be bought. If the items can be found in different stores, you might want to consider planning your route, like deciding the order of malls or stores to visit so you can buy all you need in one day.

Do not wait for the Christmas Shopping Fever

You have to admit, there is one mistake Filipinos love repeating: shopping during a shopping fever. This does not only happen during the Christmas season but during the back-to-school season as well. Parents and guardians would flock to the malls to buy school supplies only when almost everybody else is buying supplies at the last minute, and before you know it, buyers are fighting over an item. Avoiding the Hunger Games version of Christmas shopping is easy—do not wait for the Christmas shopping fever. Sure, the Christmas sale is quite tempting, but it is more convenient to shop in an uncrowded mall without too much competitors.

Send packages ahead

Always keep in mind that malls are not the only ones affected by the Christmas rush—roads are more congested as there are more families leaving for their holiday vacation, and courier and delivery service providers are loaded with more tasks than usual. It is advisable to send your packages ahead of time to avoid expected transportation delays caused by the holidays. But if you really have no time to send your gifts early, you can always use Transportify’s same-day delivery feature to transport your parcel to its destination before Christmas Day.
