I can’t believe that Christmas is right around the corner. Every year I swear I’m going to have my shopping done early. This year I even STARTED early but then Christmas just creeps up on you and BAM you are behind. I am still Christmas decorating and still have several presents I need to get and I’m slowly running out of time. This past weekend was a blur. Honey had to twirl in two parades and the weekend just got away. However Honey and I needed to do some shopping because she needed to bring some gifts to school. It was important to her that she get a gift for her teacher and twirling coach as they are both important to her and have helped her a lot this year.
Do you know which service providers are often overlooked at the holidays?
Surprisingly, many Americans aren’t making the grade when it comes to remembering teachers and tutors. According to Walgreens’ State of Small Gift Giving Report, teachers and tutors are the most commonly overlooked during the holiday season, with almost 40 percent of those surveyed receiving gifts from less than a quarter of their students. In contrast, babysitters and nannies are the most likely group of ‘everyday service providers’ to receive a gift – more than 60 percent say those they work for give them a gift during the holidays.
We all know that it is the “thought that counts”. However how do your service providers know that they are in your thoughts? Even a small gift goes a long way. Recently we shared with you our own Walgreens Holiday Gift Guide for your service providers and important people in your life
This week Honey and I did some last minute shopping. After a long day at the parade we headed into Walgreens with a few ideas but still searching for the perfect gift. As we were looking around I noticed the photo center and an idea hit me!
Walgreens Shopping Trip
The great thing is you can shop both in store and online for your photo gift needs. They have a great selection of gifts. Since we decided at the last minute to purchase a photo gift you might wonder how I was able to pull it off in store? Well since most of us take photos on our phone and those are always on us that was all I needed. I was able to plug my phone right into the computer and download my photos. Though I happen to have a cord in my purse you can ask an attendant if you don’t happen to carry one with you. Check out some of the cute gifts perfect for the holidays.
Walgreens was so easy to run in and do some shopping for our favorite people. Don’t forget your service providers this year and stop into your local Walgreens to pick them up something special.
