Get the best deals this holiday season (without leaving your couch!)

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… to spend too much money on gifts. It seems that with each passing year, we are expected to spend more and more money on gifts.  When did the gift of friendship get replaced with an Xbox 360 or the new air jordans? We can still keep the holidays fun without going bankrupt come January credit card bills.

If your list of people to buy for seems to be longer than the receipt you receive at CVS, here are some fun, inexpensive alternatives to your traditional Christmas gifts. The best part is, you can find many of these non-traditional gifts on discounted gift sites, like Groupon.

It’s so easy to turn on the television and get caught up in the promise of one day deals, or BOGO boots and coats, but does that really save you money? The truth is, many times, the hassle is not worth the headache associated with fighting crowds to save a few pennies on a piece of clothing.

Many people don’t know that you can actually save money on popular items from some of your favorite stores without having to change out of your pajamas. Did you know that Groupon now has something called Groupon Coupon’s? Did you also know that they have partnered with some of the biggest names in the industry to bring you the latest discounts and deals on your fashion favorites? Well, you can!

How does this work? Allow me to explain. You know how Groupon offers deals on specific items or restaurants? Well, now they do it with specific stores. So, if you are looking for deals to fill your closet, you can check out the coupon for popular department stores like Argos. If you have something more specific in mind, like maybe a new pair of running shoes, you can check out the coupon for Nike.

There are so many other options available, that you can most likely find a coupon to cover you from your head to your toe. You can always use these sites to buy holiday gifts as well, and the money you save, you can use to treat yourself. How does the saying go? One for you, two for me?
