5 Tips for Picking the Perfect Gift | Shop Beauty, Toys and Electronics at Beall's for the Holidays

Shopping for holiday gifts is something that I feel that I do really well. I shop a lot throughout the year and I keep pretty good notes for each person on my list. I have been doing this along with a few other things for years which I believe makes me a pretty good gift giver. I take gift giving seriously and in fact, I have a closet for gifts in my home. I also have a complete gift wrapping station but that's for another post. There are a couple of strategies that I use when it comes to gift giving that I wanted to share with you as prime shopping season really begins. We have partnered with Beall's this holiday season to share our 5 Tips for Picking the Perfect Gift along with why you need to shop Beauty, Toys and Electronics at Beall's for the holidays.

5 Tips for Picking the Perfect Gift

1. Take good notes.

You know that Notes app on your phone? Open it up and create a list with the top people that you shop for each year. Under each person's name, write things that you know about the person like:

  • favorite color(s)
  • favorite brands
  • sizes
  • hints they drop throughout the year
  • general notes, etc.

When I go to shop for gifts, I immediately open my notes which makes shopping easy.

2. Choose quality over quantity.

Choosing quality over quantity is a rule that I have long shopped by and one that I use even when shopping for myself. I choose items that are long lasting and from brands that I know or have heard good things about. Rather than shop by brand or price, I prefer to look at how well something is made.

3. Shop year round.

4. Know where to find the best deals.

I always want to find a good deal on whatever I am buying. I do this because I want to maximize what I spend and I want to be able to spend money when I really need to or when I want to splurge on something. To get the best deals, I literally shop on my phone while I shop in store. I check prices online to make sure I'm getting the best deal. I want to make certain that I am getting the best price on everything that I buy. I also use shopping apps that offer rebates and/or cash back for purchases.

5. Shop Beauty, Toys and Electronics at Beall's for the Holidays

We recently posted about our amazing finds at Beall's during their Baking & Roasting event in November. We were able to create an amazing Thanksgiving tablescape along with the right cookware for cooking and baking all of our holiday creations. Check it out: Shop for the Holidays at Beall’s Outlet.

Beall's has quickly become our one-stop shop for all things holiday. Why shop at multiple store when I can get everything that I need in one place? Seriously. Make Beall's your first stop for all things beauty, toys and electronics. I was thrilled to find all of my kid's requested brands and to check the majority of gifts off of my holiday shopping list.

Beauty: I was thrilled to find some of my favorite beauty brands like Chi, OPI, Beauty Blender, Redkin, Burberry, Conair, Vivitar, Bedhead, Paul Mitchell, Paris Hilton, Batiste, w7, Cleanlogic, Hershey's, The Creme Shop, Tigi and so much more. I literally found everything on my teenage daughter's Christmas list at Beall's Outlet. I am still amazed that happened! This is one of my favorite departments to shop and I just love how I can find everything from perfume and bath bombs to beauty product organization and for beauty, I highly suggest visiting at least two locations for double the amazing selection. I was able to score a few different colors by shopping two locations.

Toys: Beall's literally has toys for kids of all ages. I even found a few things I loved! Emoji nail polish, anyone? Find beloved kids brands like Melissa & Doug, Discovery Toys, Marvel, Barbie, Wilson, Russell, Disney, My Little Pony, Bratz, Nerf, Little Tikes, Baby Magic, Fisher Price, Monopoly, Rubiks Cube and more. This is the kind of department that I suggest checking back weekly to see what comes in new shipments.

Electronics: I love my electronics as does everyone in my family. There are several items that we seem to go through a lot of no matter how hard I try to keep track of these things for my entire family. It seems like I am always purchasing charging cables (I prefer those fancy braided ones because they seem to last longer for my kids), earbuds, Bluetooth speakers and headphones at least once every 2-3 months. Since those items are always on my list, I am familiar with their prices and I know which brands I prefer. At Beall's, I found brands like Polaroid, Sharper Image, iWorld, B Iconic and Core Audio. I found some really cool drones and other holiday gifts all at great prices.

  35. lisalisa

    Great tips! I really like the shop year round, I do that a lot and it makes it so easy for me during the holidays. While everyone is out and about I already have most of everything I need by shopping year round. I must say Beall’s appears to have it all for everyone on your list!

  36. I totally agree with quality over quantity. I think it’s much better to give one thoughtful, meaningful gift than a bunch of silly gifts that don’t really match the person’s personality.

  37. I used to spend a lot of time in Florida and loved shopping at Beall’s. I can imagine that their outlet stores would be amazing. Thanks for the shopping tips. I couldn’t agree more with quality over quantity.

  38. Great tips! I especially like the tip to shop year round and the tip to take notes! I wish we had a Beals local to us – that looks like a nice store!

  40. Great tips! We do a lot of our shopping year round. I do love taking one day a few weeks before Christmas to complete all of my shopping so I have a good amount of time to get all of the gifts wrapped and organized with less stress. So many great items to choose from this year.

  41. I could not agree with you more when it comes to QUALITY over quantity. This is a battle my husband and I have. He wants to get them lots of things. I want deliberate smaller selections. He is finally coming over to my way to thinking. 

    And, you are so right that shopping year round helps so much. Especially when you have a lot of people to buy for. We only by for our children and grandparents, but still that is enough to make a huge dent in out account if we do not map it out wisely. 

  42. Take good notes — I’m taking them now! I was just at Wal-mart, trying to remember the few things my hubby seemed interested in and I couldn’t remember all of them. These are great ideas for gift giving!

  43. These are great tips. I always make sure I have an ear open all year long for what my family members talk about. They have no idea I’m storing away shopping information.

  44. These are such good tips, it can be so hard getting the right gifts, but making sure you shop the sales especially all year around can be a good help.

  45. Victoria Heckstall

    What a brilliant tips! This is very helpful and has a great selection! I’ll have to save this.

  46. Looks like there is a lot of variety there! What a fun place to shop!

  47. Debra Hawkins

    I agree quality after quantity is something to live by! It is so easy to buy tons of cheap presents but I would rather give something that will last!

  48. Bealls looks like a great place to shop! I am crossing my fingers that I listened well enough to everyone’s want list.

  49. These are such great gift tips. I always struggle with gift giving.
