We have just stepped into the last quarter of the year, which means that the general feeling in the air is shifting into one of contemplation and celebration for the end of another year. 

The holiday season might look different in a pandemic, but we can plan for and choose safer alternative ways to keep the season cheer. Connecting with your closed friends is simple via the myriad of technology available, while physical gifts can be delivered conveniently via delivery partners. It's a good time to think about bringing some Christmas cheer to your loved ones!

Don't think it's too early either, especially if you factor in possible delivery delays as we get closer to Christmas. Here are a few reasons why you should start your shopping now. 

1. Luxury of time to choose the best deal

Procrastinators or not, you can actually take your time to thoughtfully select the perfect gifts for the loved ones in your life, while making sure your wallet does not bleed out. Price comparisons can be done online with lesser pressure, plus you can definitely ease the burden on your wallet when you split the shopping into three months. With 10.10, 11.11 and end of year sales around the corner, it's also the best time to snag wallet-friendly deals! 

2. More choices, less unavailability

With the shortage in labour and raw materials, it's possible to run into a case of unavailability when the entire world world is looking for presents and decorations from next month onwards. You don't want to have to scramble for last minute presents that might not even be suitable for your giftee, which would also be a waste of money.

3. Skip customs/logistics nightmare

Being prepared earlier also means you don't need to grapple with potential customs delays. Things like returns and refunds (should the product not be ideal) can be less painful to deal with if you have plenty of time to make sure you got what was promised.
