Operation “Holiday Gifting” is in full swing at the Robertson House. I’m officially making out my list for my loved ones and scouting out the perfect gifts for each of them. eBay has always been a resource for us when it comes to gifting. Whether it’s a little something for myself or for Austin, I can find almost anything on eBay. Austin typically uses eBay to buy random tech products or computer parts (he has had his account since 2003!) but I love to use eBay for designer accessories or shoes. There are a few things to keep in mind though. We’re sharing our tips below!
eBay Holiday Shopping Tips:
1. Did you know 81% of eBay listings are new and available with the “Buy it Now” option?
2. 69% of listings ship for free
3. Top Filters to Use:
- Condition – Set to “new”
- Item Location – Set to your location
- Buying Format – Set to “buy it now”
- Guaranteed Delivery – Adjust as needed to fit your timeframe
4. Always look for “Top Rated” sellers and read customer reviews
POPULAR GIFTING ITEMS FOR 2018:
DYSON HAIRDRYER: No joke half of my friends and family have been asking me where they can find the best deal for a Dyson Hairdryer. And I send them all to eBay! Be sure to use the above filters and tips to get the best shopping experience. I have the Dyson Hairdryer and can personally speak to its greatness. My hair (before the chop) would take 27 minutes with my regular dryer. With the Dyson, it was cut to 7 minutes. That’s right, 7 minutes. It’s a game changer if you have long or thick hair.
GOLDEN GOOSE SNEAKERS: These are truly the best sneaker and a hot item this season. I know — they aren’t for everyone, but I have worn these so many times. No matter how you style them, they are a cool shoe. For sizing, I went up a 1/2 size and they fit great. In terms of comfort, nothing compares. I can’t speak highly enough about these shoes but one of the cons is the price — they aren’t necessarily “budget-friendly”. But if you find a reputable seller on eBay you could actually save a good amount. Now the hard part — which style will you get?
RAYBAN SUNGLASSES: Always a popular choice for both men and women. Austin wears his Classic Aviators every day. I might have to get him another pair this year!
