Daruitor de Meserie 2.0

Mai e o saptamana pana la Craciun si nu ai cumparat inca niciun cadou? Nu te panica, am 10 sfaturi pentru tine 🙂

 

EN: Only one week left until Christmas and you still haven’t bought any gifts? Don’t panic, I have 10 advice for you:)

Eu sunt un Daruitor de Meserie organizat. Puteti urmari aici video din timpul cumpararii cadourilor de Craciun de anul acesta, daca nu ati facut-o deja. L-am plimbat ceva pe Radu dupa mine prin AFI Cotroceni, dar in vreo doua ore aveam toata lista de cadouri incheiata. Mai am sa ii cumpar doar lui, caci nu puteam chiar de fata cu el, dar asta e alta discutie.

Asadar, am 10 sfaturi pentru cei care nu au apucat sa cumpere inca nimic si se declara ingrijorati, depasiti de situatie, panicati.

1. Fa lista cu toti cei pentru care trebuie sa iei cadou si ia-o cu tine la cumparaturi. E groaznic sa uiti sa cumperi soacrei si sa trebuiasca sa te intorci pentru un singur cadou inapoi.

2. Gandeste-te dinainte ce ai vrea sa cumperi pentru fiecare (o varianta optima si una de rezerva). Poti cauta pe net in prima faza ce au brandurile colectia asta si apoi mergi punct ochit – punct lovit in magazine.

3. Nu mai e timp de cumparaturi online, curierii avand inca de livrat produse de la Black Friday. Asa ca solutia e sa mergi in mall, ca sa le cumperi pe toate din acelasi loc.

4. Avand in vedere ca Rulota Moon a stat mult timp parcata in AFI Cotroceni, pot spune ca am remarcat orele de varf ale cumparatorilor, dar si pe cele mai lejere. Daca iti permite programul, fie mergi la cumparaturi cand e copilul la gradi, adica pana in ora 14:00, fie dupa ora 20:00, cand mall-ul e plin, dar cei mai multi se indreapta spre cinema si restaurante, deci magazinele sunt ceva mai libere.

5. Fa-ti de dinainte harta magazinelor in cap, ca sa nu treci de sapte ori dus si intors prin fata pe la Zara sau H&M. Nu de alta, dar intr-un final te vei opri si iti vei cumpara tie de toti banii ceva dragut, dar nu tocmai practic 🙂

6. Aloca-ti un buget pentru tine, pentru un cadou al tau, ca sa nu risti sa cheltui prea mult cand te duci sa cumperi de fapt pentru ceilalti, si sa suferi ca ai intrat nemilos in economiile pentru vacanta de iarna. Mai bine, asadar, stabileste-ti de la bun inceput o suma maxima pentru “recompesa”.

7. Ca sa intri in atmosfera, ca sa te bucuri de decoratiunile mall-ului, de copiii care vorbesc pe la cozi despre Mos Craciun si cat de cuminti au fost ei, pe drum spre mall recomand sa asculti exclusiv colinde! 🙂 O data pe an e nebunia asta frumoasa!

8. Daca stii de dinainte ce ai de cumparat, in maxim doua ore ar trebui sa fii gata. Dar daca esti indecis in privinta unor cadouri, a masurii pantofilor, a culorii puloverului cadou pentru sora etc. ia in calcul si un timp pentru o cafea sau o masa. In pauza aceasta, recapeti energie si iei decizii mai bune.

9. Nu incerca sa fii fashionista cand mergi la astfel de cumparaturi. De vreo doua ori mi-am cumparat pantofi comozi in timpul cumparaturilor, pentru ca eu ca fraiera m-am gandit ca tocul e mic si calapodul comod…. NU E! Tenisi, haine cat mai lejere, ideal geaca, fularul si caciula lasate in masina in parcare.

10. Daca la intoarcerea acasa te simti epuizat(a), cu mainile rupte de la sacose, cu nervii intinsi la maxim, recomand sa te uiti din nou la “Love Actually” si toate se vor rezolva.

Daca si voi sunteti daruitori de meserie ca mine, AFI Cotroceni va premiaza cu unul dintre sutele de premii instant. Intrati pe www.aficotroceni.ro pentru a afla mai multe detalii.

Spor la cumparaturi!

EN: I am an organized Gift Giver. Here you can watch the video I made during this year’s Christmas shopping spree. Radu had to follow me all around AFI Cotroceni, but after two hours I had all my shopping list checked. I only have to get something for him, because I couldn’t do that with him around, but that’s a different discussion.

So, I have 10 advice for those of you who didn’t get anything yet and are worried, overwhelmed, panicked.

1. Make a list of everyone you need to get gifts for and take it with you while shopping. It’s awful to forget about your mother-in-law and to have to go back for a single gift.

2. Think ahead about what you would like to buy for everyone (an optimal solution and one for backup). You can search online to see what certain brands have in their current collections and then you just aim and shoot in the stores.

3. You don’t have enough time to shop online, the couriers still have deliveries left from Black Friday. So going to the Mall is the only solution, so you can get everything from one place.

4. Since the Moon Trailer was parked in AFI Cotroceni for quite a while, I can say that I have noticed what the shoppers’ rush hours are, but also which ones are lighter. If your schedule allows you to, you can either go shopping while the child is in kindergarten, so until 2 pm, or after 8 pm, when the mall is still full, but most of the people are heading towards the movies or restaurants, so the shops are less crowded.

5. Make a map of the shops in your mind, so you don’t have to pass by Zara or H&M seven times back and forth. Because you’ll only end up spending all your money on something nice, but less practical for yourself 🙂

6. Save some of your budget for yourself, for a gift of your own, so you don’t risk spending too much on everyone else and suffer for ruthlessly spending your savings for a vacation. So, plan ahead for a maximum “reward” amount.

7. To get into the spirit, to enjoy the mall’s Christmas decorations, the kids talking about Santa and how well they’ve behaved, on your way to the mall I recommend to listen to carols! 🙂 Once a year it’s a beautiful thing to do!

8. If you know beforehand what you need to buy, you should be done in two hours. But if you’re not so sure about some of the gifts, about shoe sizes, colors of sweaters etc., also add the time you need to get some lunch or coffee. During this break you’ll get some more energy and take better decisions.

9. Don’t try to be a fashionista when you go on such shopping sprees. A couple of times I needed to buy some comfortable shoes for myself, because silly me actually thought the heel is not that big…. IT NEVER IS! Sneakers, comfortable clothes, ideally you leave your coat, scarf and hat in the car.

10. If you feel exhausted after getting home, I recommend you watch “Love Actually” again and everything will be fine again.

If you are just like when it comes to making gifts, AFI Cotroceni will reward you with one of the hundreds of instant prizes. Go to www.aficotroceni.ro to find out more details.

Good luck with your shopping!
