A Procrastinator’s Guide to the Holidays

December 20, 2017
The fast pace of the holiday season can leave shoppers with last-minute needs.

Holidays may keep your calendar full of office parties, family gatherings and special events leaving shopping at the bottom of the to-do list. For gifts, wrapping essentials, décor, baking items and other holiday necessities, Dollar General has everything a last-minute shopper needs to conquer a holiday shopping list. 

Here are a few ideas to get help get started:
  • Gift sets are a great way to save time because they are ready to give as-is without any additional wrapping. They come in many different themes such as bath and fragrance sets, and, most importantly, they are popular with people of all ages.
  • A basket of baked goods is a budget friendly option when something more thoughtful is required. Fill a basket with tissue paper and add cookies, chocolates or muffins. Tie a pre-made bow to the basket handle or decorate it with festive $1 ornaments and it’s ready to give. Find delicious recipe ideas at DG Easy Meals.
  • Photo keepsakes are gifts that friends and family will cherish for years to come. Receiving a framed family photo or a photo album is a gift that keeps on giving. Holidays through photos is a lasting and treasured gift.
When in a time crunch, try these easy, quick gift ideas to save time and money this holiday season. For more shopping ideas and essentials, visit a local Dollar General store or shop online at www.dollargeneral.com.
