Holiday Shopping Survival Tips for Men

(ARA) - When it comes to holiday shopping, men and women are alleged to be very different. The conventional wisdom is: women shop and men buy. Most women spend time carefully planning their purchases and do their shopping over a period of time. Many men, on the other hand, wait until the very last minute, and often end up choosing whatever happens to be on display that day. Not usually a successful strategy for getting the right gift.

For those who are anticipating the upcoming holiday shopping season with fear and trepidation, the Retail Council of Canada offers some holiday shopping survival tips for men.

* Start shopping now so you don't have to get something at the last minute. (Last-minute power shopping is not a sport).

* Take advantage of gift-wrapping services to save time and aggravation (and to make a good impression).

* Before shopping for clothes for your significant other, check for her preferred sizes, colors, fabrics and brands. (Important: when in doubt, always buy the smaller size.)

* Be on the lookout for possible hints your partner may be dropping. Also, your children may be able to help you think of gift ideas for your spouse.

* Always check the store's return policy before you buy and always keep receipts.

* Don't forget to include a romantic card with any gift for a spouse.

One way that men can make shopping even easier is by using a trusted online retailer., a site many men may already be familiar with because of its large selection of outdoor clothing and accessories, also offers a lot of great gifts for women.

"People are shocked to find out the depth of product that we carry," comments Kim Swanson, spokesperson for Sierra Trading Post. "We have great, affordable gifts that are also high quality."

Men searching for the perfect gift will be able to choose from a selection of embroidered wool and Scottish cashmere sweaters and scarves; winter coats in all styles and price ranges; Italian leather boots, purses and belts; and even luxurious bedding such as Egyptian cotton sheets, baffle-down comforters, and chenille throws.

"Customer service representatives are available via the Web on live chat or on the phone to provide product information and guidance for shoppers," says Swanson.

Easy to navigate, the Sierra Trading Post site offers name brand merchandise from 30 to 70 percent off, and a number of easy shipping options. For those who may have waited until the last minute, they offer express delivery. And shoppers who just can't decide can always play it safe with a gift certificate, which can be purchased online.
