Exchanging Christmas Presents

Saldos-Sales-Trocas-Presentes de Natal-Christmas Presents

Christmas is over and now we’re left with the presents to exchange… You know, those gifts filled with good intentions but that have nothing to do with you. We all have someone in our lives with no talent for gift-shopping and always offers you something you’d never wear. As much as you love that person, if you can exchange the item, do it! And now that the sales are in, it’s a great time to get more value out of that switch! Just pay attention to a couple of factores…

They are:

  • Pay attention to the timeframe in witch your exchange will be accepted. Most stores have a 30 days policy but it’s always good to be sure so you won’t get disappointed.
  • Super importante!… Don’t lose the ticket and do not cut off the tags!
  • Take advantage of sale season to get more value out of your exchange – It’s a great opportunity to shop for basics, investment pieces and/or extravagant ones (these are trends or any garments that you know from the start, you won’t wear as much and so avoid buying – think sequins, feathers, fur… If you can get it with a fat discount, this is the time to cheer up your closet!).
  • Avoid lunch time to do your exchanges. Shops will be cluttered and you’ll be in a hurry, therefor feeling pressured + you need to eat! Make an appointment in your calendar and, if possible, make it first thing in the morning – even if on the weekends, it’s the best time to shop.
  • Last but not least, if you can’t find anything you like or flatters you, ask if you can have a store credit of the same amount. This way you’ll buy time and don’t lose the amount (or get stuck with your ugly present!).
