It seems so crazy but sometimes you can actually save a lot of money when it comes to Christmas gift by waiting at the last minute. Many times stores would throw out crazy sales during the last week of shopping because they know there will be a ton of frantic shoppers. What better way to get them than to offer some killer deals right?
For example, I was even looking at this Hatchimal deal where the price of this thing seemed cheaper than it was on Black Friday from what I saw. This will still arrive before Christmas as well even for an online store.
Is it always better? Of course not as the main drawback would be your choices will be extremely limited to whatever the stores decide to put on sale. This is as opposed to wanting to find a specific perfect gift at the best price. Because at the last minute you don’t really have that luxury to truly get the hot items many times. The best combination I think would be to already have your main gifts shopped for where these sales would be more as stocking stuffers.
