Home Living : November 30th 2010
4 HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, November 30, 2010 Buy presents online » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING ................................ There are only so many hours in the day and after buzzing around at work, running errands, slaving over dinner and getting yourself and the kids organised for the next day, the last thing on your mind is Christmas shopping. These days, it seems many households are relying on virtual shopping centres for Christmas pressies. According to DealsDirect.com.au CEO Mike Rosenbaum, customers are logging on to shopping websites in record numbers to take advantage of bargains. ''We're really noticing a distinct change in the way people are shopping this Christmas,'' he said. ''At DealsDirect.com.au, we've seen a huge increase in sales from last year and have surpassed our year-on-year sales, while bricks-and-mortar retailers may not necessarily be experiencing the same growth.'' Women are leading the charge with 67 per cent of online sales. City residents are shopping online more than regional residents and NSW remains one of the highest-selling states for online shopping. 'Tis the season to be green Dreaming of a green Christmas? It's possible, if you know where to look. 1 Flick the switch. Save energy as well as some much-needed dollars off your electricity bill by canning the Christmas lights. 2 Make your own gifts. By using leftover fruit, vegetables and pantry goods to make your own jams, chutneys, chocolates and biscuits you can give a more personalised gift while cutting down on wastage. 3 Festive foliage. Mix it up this Christmas by choosing a different style of native tree or plant. Naked branches and twigs dressed up with homemade Christmas decorations bring the festive season forward a few centuries. 4 Give the gift that gives. Avoid buying package and battery- laden presents and instead opt for service or experience-based gifts. Vouchers for massages or manicures, concert tickets, magazine subscriptions and donations to charity are all thoughtful gifts. 5 Be green. When shopping for Christmas presents, buy from companies that are working towards reducing their impact on the environment.
