Stretch Your Budget This Holiday Season With Discounted Goods at Groupon

**This is a sponsored post. All opinions expressed in this blog post are 100% mine.

I have made my Christmas list a bit early this year because I would like to really see how far I can stretch my holiday budget this time. Last year’s budget went over because my husband and I got hooked with the Black Friday deals. Next thing we know it, we were buying so much for gifts for families and friends.

I told myself that we will not make the same mistake again. Money is a bit tight this year but it doesn’t mean we cannot allocate a portion for gifts for families.  After all that we have been through the early part of 2016, I feel it is right to celebrate (albeit not as fancy as our previous holiday celebrations) to honor my late mum’s fond memories of Christmas. She loved the holidays. She loved giving gifts. She loved entertaining guests and decorating the house with festive things.  And I will certainly keep that tradition in the family.

I am glad that I managed to save enough to use to buy gifts this Christmas so I need not panic on that. I know that I can find plenty of discounted stuff from Groupon to stretch the budget further.  Aside from the gifts, we already bought Christmas decorations to spruce up the place.

Last week, I bought my first Lemax Christmas Village. We also have other decorations that need to be displayed. However, I don’t want the batteries to eat so much from the budget allocated for the gifts. So I found a really good deal from Groupon Goods to buy the batteries in bulk or even get those rechargeable ones so I don’t keep on replacing the other batteries for the decorations.

I will be scouring Groupon for more great finds. Groupon has plenty to offer, from fashion, to toys, to shoes, to electronics, to household items, to travel, and even services! I don’t have to go anywhere to get the best deals because Groupon has them, and all these at the comfort at my home.

You will certainly find many items you may consider as gifts. You don’t have to break your head thinking too much of what to give because of the many selections in Groupon. Just take your pick, click on the product, and pay! Saves you gas because the goods will be delivered to you (check their shipping policies). It’s convenient and no worries on parking woes! Groupon is your go-to online shopping site for your many needs!

How about you? Have you made your Christmas gift list? Have you managed to set aside a budget for the coming holidays?

Gift Ideas For Your Boss

Do not cringe! I know most of you will not like the idea of giving gifts to your superiors especially if they are not the nicest people in the planet. However, there are some who are blessed to have kind-hearted bosses who they want to appreciate this holiday season. I am one of them! It is not buttering up or anything but just a token of my appreciation because they made my transfer to another department possible by accepting me in their department!

So, if you are like me who sincerely wants to show they gratefulness to their bosses then here are some ideas to give your bosses depending on your budget and their type.

expensive cigars or ash tray or even cigar/cigarette cases – For the puffers

cuff links – for the conventional and business-wearing bosses

desk accessories like pen holder, paper weight, business card holder or even small clock with personalized engravings of his/her initials

iPad case – for the gadget-savvy, provided your boss has an iPad

mini speaker for iPod or iPhone – Again, make sure your boss has an iPod or iPhone or even other MP3 player or tablet to enjoy this

digital picture frame – This is my favorite! I have seen so many of these digital frames adorning my previous bosses tables.

gift vouchers – For groceries or department stores so at least you’re safe!
scarf with matching gloves – If your boss fancies the cold weather

pen – I have seen plenty of Mont Blancs on my previous bosses tables and they actually love the fountain pens.

What you give solely depends on you as the gift giver but make sure that when you decide to give something for your boss, it is because you truly want to and they deserve the token of gratitude and appreciation.
