Holiday shopping just got easier with so many options online. How about some Fun Holiday Gifts with PayPal this year?
So outside of my cooking and baking you all probably don’t know what my day to day life looks like. I am a stay at home mom of 4 kids, 3 boys and a girl. Along with that, I do part-time daycare out of my home. Mainly before and after school along with one full day a week. Being busy in the kitchen and with kids either mine or others all day long doesn’t leave me much time to get out and about for holiday shopping.
This year I did all my holiday shopping online. It is absolutely convenient for anyone like myself, busy working families, or just because you want to beat the crowds this season! My motto is that if I don’t have to leave to get it, I wont. I know it sounds like I’m so unsociable, but I’m really not!
Thanks to PayPal this year’s online shopping experience was a breeze. I choose to do some of my shopping to support small businesses that accepted PayPal as a method of payment. Since PayPal offers PayPal Credit it let’s me spread out my payments over a period of time which is really nice, when you have a large family and friends to buy for!
Some of the amazing things I purchased were some funky little shops I found through PayPal. Tipsy Elves is one of the merchants I choose to buy from this year! They offer a fun array of holiday themed apparel, which range anywhere from Christmas themed to 4th of July. They have such super fun and hilarious stuff that it was hard to make a decision on just what to purchase.
In the end I bought myself and a few of my family members some funky leggings that we are able to wear when we all get together Christmas Day. We’re fun like that and like to have a good time. I figured since all the little kids get to have funky pajamas we might as well be able to have some fun too!
As you can clearly see I’m the fun type of gal….doesn’t my face just elicit joy in this picture? Seriously loving these leggings though, I can’t wait for Christmas so everyone else can be wearing there’s and we can all match and get the kids all together for one big picture!
Another shop I purchased some gifts from was called The Smart Baker. Obviously you have to know why I choose to purchase from here! They offered some fun personalized gifts such as these spatulas that I decided to gift myself, my mother and a few of my closest blogging friends.
They burn an inscription of your choosing and design right in the handle. Isn’t that just the neatest? I have to admit, this is the first thing that I own that actually has my blog’s name on it. I’ve been meaning to get more personalized things, but it just hasn’t happened yet!
They are really good quality and who doesn’t want or need another spatula around their house? I know that mine walk up and leave on me more often then not these days! And that just isn’t cool…I’m sick of replacing them, but these were a steal so I knew that I couldn’t pass them up!
On top of that, if you’ve been a reader of Tornadough Alli for some time now, you know how much I love baking cakes. It’s quite the addiction of mine. Well one thing that I always do is cut out parchment paper to fit my pans that I use and that can just be time consuming and slow down my process.
Well my friends, I found these amazing Pre-cut parchment paper pieces! They offered a variety of sizes and since I usually bake in 9″ cake pans that was the one I knew I had to have. These are going to absolutely come in handy in the very near future. They come in packs of 24, so I think I’ll be set for quite awhile.
Another awesome thing is this season PayPal is offering to pay for return shipping which they call “Return Shipping on Us” on items up to $30 and for up to 11 purchases! Now that is something that I think is just great for a company to do! Because you never know what issues could arise when you purchase online.
Supporting small business is something that is near and dear to my heart and PayPal makes that possible by collaborating with a bunch of amazing online merchants to offer you the quick and easy checkout such as One Touch checkout which allows you to pay for your items in your shopping cart without having to enter any credit card or billing details!
So I highly urge you to consider shopping small business and using PayPal this holiday season. Not only was it the most easiest and convenient thing for me, I always have felt safe and protected using them.
