As the end of year celebrations loom, we explain why it would be in your best interest to buy your gifts now.

Christmas , it's just over a month away and as tradition dictates, many of us will soon be busy doing the Christmas shopping that will slip under the Christmas tree on the morning of December 25 (or the evening of the 24th, depending).

Like every year at this time of year, the mission - not to say the 'chore' - of the gifts thus monopolizes our attention and can even prove to be a real headache.

In search of originality or lack of time, Christmas shopping can indeed become a real headache to the point that we are often forced to go about it at the last moment, at the risk of missing some great opportunities.

To make it easier for you, there are nevertheless some good plans to know, starting with the famous 'Black Friday', which has become unavoidable in recent years.

Black Friday, ideal for doing your Christmas shopping in advance?

True Tradition in the United States and Canada, where it takes place the day after Thanksgiving (the fourth Thursday of November), 'Black Friday' (or 'Black Friday') is an important day when consumers can take advantage of deep discounts on many items.

For North Americans, this commercial event traditionally marks the start of the Christmas shopping season.

Arrived in France at the beginning of the 2010s, this very special day thus allows you to get ahead on your list of gifts, especially since the brands concerned have got into the habit of bringing this 'Black Friday' forward on the week. before D-Day.

This extension of this sales period (sometimes going up to 70%) is so important today that we now speak of 'Black week' rather than 'Black Friday'.

Ready-to-wear, household appliances, high-tech… there is something for everyone during this period and there is no doubt that you will find what you are looking for, whether online or in store.

So you know what you have to do for your Christmas shopping, and you will have no excuse if you go about it at the last moment.
