Holiday Shopping Made Easier!

My eBay Collections were curated as part of my collaboration with eBay.

Holiday shopping got a whole lot easier this year.  And a whole lot harder.  Let me explain.  My kids are getting older.  I’m getting older.  My husband is getting older, and we have a lot of stuff, so figuring out what who needs and wants what is HARD.  So, to make shopping easier, I created eBay Collections to keep me on my game.  I’ve “packaged” items that I think my family members will love based on themes, passions and hobbies.  I’ve literally spent HOURS curating holiday themed collections that will be helpful as I begin my Christmas shopping in earnest.

Holiday Shopping Made Easier!

I can’t decide which collection I like best {I made 20!}, but I can tell you that I had the most fun curating collections with my husband and kids.  Hint:  Kids love making collections!  It’s like shopping until you drop, but you don’t actually have to buy anything at that moment!  Where applicable, like with the Holiday Gifts for Teens Collections, Campaholic Favorites,  Gifts for the Kid Who Loves All Things Super Hero, and Men’s Personal Care Collections, I got input.  I wanted my collections to be meaningful to me and my family, but also to have value to others as well.  And, I wanted them to make finding items on eBay within a theme, easier. Most of all, I wanted my family members to want the items in my collections, because that was my ultimate goal.  To create stories for individual family members with items that spoke to them.  Here are a few examples:

Pie, Pie, Pie!

My Pie, Pie, Pie! Collection was fun to put together because pies are such a big part of traditional holiday celebrations.  I learned that  the first pies were made by early Romans who may have learned about it through the Greeks. Everything for making the perfect pies can be found in this collection, including an apron I’m totally coveting. Here comes the pie, pie, pie!  My daughter is totally into baking, so these items are perfect for an up and coming pie baker.  Who says mom and dad and benefit from the gifts given to their children?  {{smiling}}

Gifts for the Photographer

Photography is the result of combining several different technical discoveries.  My Gifts for the Photographer collection highlights items that photographers would love to use to make their art a little easier, whether they are professional or amateur.  I kind of sort of want just about everything in this collection, so technically, this collection isn’t for anyone in my family.  It’s for me.  But, that’s the story it tells.  It leaks my “secret” that no matter how old I get, I’m still selfish and still always looking for the next best thing….for me.  {{big smile}}

Campaholic Favorites

People who like to camp {and my kids and husband like to camp} like fun do-dads too. I got my husbands input for this whole collection of must haves perfect for the campaholic because camping can be fun with all the right equipment {or so I’ve been told}. With all the great new things available for purchase, there is no longer a need to “rough it”.   Campaholic Favorites is my most popular collection, so there must be a story to be told there that doesn’t include a hotel room.  {{laughing}}
