I’m spent so many hours recently online shopping, the Christmas season makes you believe that you’re being productive in your phone, when you’re actually endlessly scrolling, lol.
I can scroll from site to site not really knowing the best place to look so I’ve created a list of my favourite online stores to shop at:
There are other methods of online shopping that we may not have thought of such as paying monthly online catalogues which allow you to purchase items such as clothing now and pay for it in monthly installments; this is perfect if you’re needing lots of holiday clothing but can’t budget it for that month. The site has catalogues from many highstreets stores such as Very, Littlewoods, BrightHouse and many more. This can be super handy at Christmas time as you can purchase a new games console or furntiure for a loved one and not have to worry about paying for it all in one lump sum.
I spend way too much time on this app, if I’m having a tea break at work and everyone is on their phones I’ll open ASOS. I’ll scroll through the gift ideas as there are so many cute ideas from candles to Polaroid’s to display items that any gal would love as a gift. It’s pretty common that you can find a good deal or you can message a pal and get their uni discount to benefit you.
Here I managed to get my dad 3 pairs of BRAND NEW looking Levi’s for Christmas, there is no way I could have afforded this otherwise. Yes, the app can be a little bit hit and miss as it’s mostly young adults selling their used clothing. I think as ping as you message the seller before purchasing, everything should go fine and it’s very reassuring that the payment is done through PayPal so you don’t have to give out any bank details.
You make think facebook marketplace is just mums selling their children’s bikes that they’ve grown out of, well it is sometimes but not always.
I’ve bought my fav ever pair of vans off there, they were a Disney limited edition Mickey and Minnie pair that I adore with all my heart. The shoes were sold out everywhere and pricing at around £150 on eBay so I was beside myself when I found the shoes on there.
Of course, it’s the locals post their kids’ old clothing on there but if you have the patience to scroll through you can find some real bargains.
I think handmade items are some of the cutest things you can own/gift. There’s some really talented creators on there that make outfits to resemble Disney characters for people’s trips to Disneyland.
I also think it’s so important to support smaller businesses rather than always shopping as the main high street names.
Where are your favourite online stores?
