Who's Been Naughty and Nice
Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) November 1, 2006
For most, the madness of the holiday season has already begun, and for those who have not even started their "Who's Been Naughty and Nice" list may need to step it up because there are only a few prime shopping weeks left before Saint Nick is sliding down chimneys across the world. AP9 Shopping Essentials, a membership discount program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, has a few suggestions on how to get those sleigh bells of gift-giving ideas ringing in your ears.
Gifts come in all shapes and sizes. So if you want to start small and build up to the big stuff, stocking stuffers are a perfect way to get you on your merry way. AP9 ShoppingEssentials members can choose from a wide selection of holiday gift-giving ideas -- ones that will fit perfectly into any stocking begging to be filled. Members can even receive 20% off the purchase of gift cards for popular retail and specialty stores throughout the country. And, as an added bonus, AP9 ShoppingEssentials members can shop online 24/7 for all their holiday gifts simply by logging on to DealPass.com.
If you are having trouble coming up with what to put in a loved one's stocking (something other than your toes), AP9 Shopping Essentials is here to the rescue by offering up a few practical present ideas:
-- Shower Gels and Body Lotion. Who wouldn't enjoy a stocking stuffed with their favorite scents? The most popular fragrances this holiday season are the ones of food. From Bath & Body Works' 3-in-1 shampoo, shower gel, and bubble bath in Twisted Peppermint to their Vanilla Bean Noel body lotion, you will be sure to find an aroma to suit all the noses on your shopping list.
-- Jewelry. All that glitters is gold. Big, bold gold surrounding jewel-toned gems is hot this season. You can find a myriad of jewelry pieces that contain gold and eye-popping jewels such as large hoop earrings, oversized button earrings, brooches and even a pair of cuff links for the man in your life who wants to add a little pizazz to his wardrobe.
-- Gift Cards. Do you have a person on your list that seems to already have everything or offers no help in the gift-giving idea department? Who doesn't? That is why the gift card was created. Stores offer them in several denominations with fun and festive packaging. The recipient can go out and buy what they want while saving you from the added stress of doing it yourself.
-- Music. Music is the gift that keeps on giving. Whether it's the golden oldies, alternative rock, soft rock or heavy metal -- music is definitely timeless and sentimental. Since the holiday season usually brings new releases and special edition boxed CD collections to store shelves, it is the perfect time to stock up on your stocking stuffers.
In addition to receiving 20% off the purchase of gift cards for popular retail and specialty stores across the United States, members can also take advantage of up to 20% savings on fashion accessories, holiday attire and even scrap-booking supplies to help capture their holiday memories -- all through one-stop shopping with AP9 Shopping Essentials.
