Buying Gifts Online Tips

Buying gifts online can give the buyer great savings. Sites like Amazon, eBay and even The Gift Store, also offers customers a greater selection of product. Products they may not find in their local shops and department stores.

When buying gifts online there are certain factors buyers should be aware of.

Buying Gifts Online Tips

Buying Gifts Online Tips #1

Time is always a factor when buying gifts online. Always make sure you check how long it will take for your gifts to arrive and add on a couple of weeks for good measure. It’s better to have your gift come early rather than not getting it on time.

When buying gifts for Christmas and special occasions I always shop months in advance. I’d rather have the gifts arrive early rather than have the stress of wondering whether or not my gifts will arrive in time.

Buying Gifts Online Tips #2

Before actually buying your gift online you should always check customer reviews. Where possible I only post products that have good reviews to make it easier for you.  Thumbup:

While both eBay and AliExpress, which is where I get all my products for my Gift Store, are reputable online stores they can be prone to unscrupulous sellers who have no qualms about ripping off their customers. Both sires have introduced a customer feedback option to help buyers so they’re not scammed by these wankers.

It is important that you only purchase gifts from sellers with a good customer feedback rating. I never buy stuff from sellers who have a customer rating below 90%. It’s also a good idea to check any feedback on delivery times.

Buying Gifts Online Tips #3

Buying from established sellers is always a good idea. It’s a lot safer to buy from someone who has been around for years rather than someone who’s only just started selling stuff.

As long as you keep those tips in mind before purchasing any gifts online you should be relatively safe. If you have any other tips that will help gift buyers online shopping experience feel free to leave a comment.\

Best Fathers Day Gift For The DIY Dad

I personally think that the best gift you can give a DIY dad is a cordless drill. Mine’s almost had its day and I know that’s what I would love as a Fathers Day gift. Cordless drills make jobs around the house so much easier, and the DEWALT DCD760KL 18-Volt 1/2-Inch Cordless Compact Lithium-Ion drill looks like it would do the job. Not as cheap as some you’ll find on the market but then at least you know it’s not going to fail him when he really needs it. Read the rest of this entry
