It’s September now, and while I keep my eyes open for gift ideas all year, this is the time of year that I start really hunting for bargains on things my friends and family will love to receive for Christmas. Almost everyone these days has heard of Groupon, but lots of other half-price sites have sprung up in the last couple of years with similar deals, and if you don’t check them regularly or sign up for their e-mails you may be missing out on the perfect gift for a loved one (or a special treat for yourself!).
Whenever I buy one of these half-price certificates, if it is for a product and not a service, I will go ahead and use the certificate to buy the product rather than just give the certificate. It’s nice to have something to wrap. But more importantly, your loved one need never know that you got an amazing deal on their gift. It is the thought that counts, not the price tag.
So here is a list of my favorite half-price sites:
And a few other deal sites that I like for Christmas gifts
I hope you find the perfect gift!
