It's that time of the year again. The time where you start to constantly think "WHAT IN THE WORLD AM I GOING TO GET MY DAD FOR CHRISTMAS?!" and "HOW MUCH IS THIS GOING TO COST?!" Well, I'm here to tell you that gift-giving doesn't have to be hard or expensive. Enter: Groupon.
Groupon is the perfect place to find great products and services for mom, dad, the grandparents, the kids, etc. It's also the perfect place to save some money on your holiday shopping! For example, often times, when I'm not sure what to get my dad for Christmas (he's tough to buy for), I'll poke around on the Groupon site until something sparks my interest. They even have a "holiday gifts" section! This year, it was the BraunCoolTec Shaver that caught my attention. With Groupon, you can buy the coupon that saves you 57% ($106 off!!!) on the product! BAM! Dad and my wallet are happy.
When shopping for your favorite foodie you might consider the Holiday Wine Package (over $200 off), a crockpot book bundle (for under $20), or a monthly coffee subscription box from Peet's Coffee (up to 35% off). When shopping for mom you might consider a massage ($80 value for only $39) or a knitting class (for half off!). There's really something for everyone. One of my favorite categories to browse is the "Getaways" section. HELLO $1,000 off 12-Day European tour with airfare. Can't beat that.
Another thing I love are Groupon Coupons. For example, you can search something like "Birchbox" and find coupons for $10 off, a free mystery sample, and 20% off orders over $50. Recently, I was searching for new work pants from LOFT and realized Groupon has coupons online for 40% off that can be used online and in-stores. You can find coupons from stores like Office Depot, Foot Locker, and Sam's Club. I will never buy anything again without first searching the store on Groupon Coupons. I might just turn into a crazy coupon lady. Watch out.
Part of what I love about Groupon is that you can find great local deals. I'm all about supporting local businesses and Groupon makes it really easy to do so. You can also search for deals local to your relatives that might not live in the same area as you! Before I buy anything, I usually check the Groupon website to see if there are any relevant coupons.
Do you use Groupon or Groupon Coupons? Have you ever thought of using it to find and save on holiday gifts?
