(BPT) - From the seasoned fashionista to the last-minute birthday gifter, we all have reasons to go shopping. Sometimes finding the perfect birthday or anniversary gift for a special loved one can feel overwhelming with so many choices out there. Here are few tips that can help save time, money and make shopping stress-free.
1. Leverage the experts. From shopping for your great-grandpa’s 80th birthday to finding the perfect Sunday brunch accessory, there are expert opinions on everything to guide you on your quest. A quick search online before you start to shop will generate creative ideas so you can have a starting point of what to look for.
2. Join a loyalty program. Being a rewards member at your favorite retailer allows you to not only get the perfect gift but enjoy wonderful bonuses for yourself as well. For example, Nordstrom’s new Nordy Club combines everything you loved about the Nordstrom Rewards program with enhanced services and experiences. You can earn points faster to receive notes, which can be used like cash for purchases in-store, in the app or online. As a member, you also get "First to Shop" select brand and product launches, access to beauty and style workshops, free basic alterations, can reserve online to try on in-store or use curbside pickup.
3. Find shortcuts. In today’s busy world, time is of the essence. Retailers recognize this need for efficiency and have designed services to make your life easier. You can buy online pick up in store, utilize complimentary gift-wrapping, or even schedule a free stylist appointment who will populate a dressing room with curated products before you even walk in the store. The list of services goes on and on, so be sure to check out what your local retailer has to offer.
