Top Holiday Shopping related questions

Hiring your own holiday shopper means that you pay that person a fixed fee. Holiday shoppers employed by brands and retail stores are often paid on a commission basis. That means the latter is motivated to give you higher prices and encourage you to buy more. The former, however, is more focused on getting your holiday shopping done in the best way for you.

Most personal shoppers mix online and in-store retail to find the best gifts available. There are minimal limitations when it comes to sourcing specialized, customized, or even rare pieces since many online stores abroad ship to the US. In-store shopping can be done if there’s a big mall or retail outlet in your area to avoid additional costs for shipping and any waiting time.

Yes, definitely! You can set up a meeting with your chosen Tasker to decide what gifts to get for everyone on your list. Holiday shoppers may have the experience to help you curate where to get gifts while you still know your family and friends best. This way, you can identify what needs to be bought without going over budget or leaving anyone important out.

No. Airtasker would never ask or advise you to share your credit card information with anyone, including Taskers. You can decide to wire a budget for liquidation at the start or have your Tasker include the total expenses of buying the gifts in your final bill.

This depends on your preference. Taskers love to go the extra mile, but wrapping the gifts and delivering them on your own during your days off from work can save you a few bucks. In any case that your holiday shopper can’t accommodate your gift wrapping and delivery requests, there are other Taskers that you can hire for these tasks through the same, easy process.

Meals for potluck and groceries to prepare for Christmas do fall under holiday shopping. However, it’s best to be clear about what you need at the start when you put up a task. A Tasker may be more skilled in finding vintage and high-end gifts than finding deals in your go-to supermarket or the other way around. Other Taskers are fine doing both! Just be clear on what you need, and a nearby Tasker will readily send you an offer!

Suggested reads about Holiday Shopping

What do holiday shopping services include?

Shopping during the holidays is sure to stress anyone out. With everyone trying to buy the perfect gifts and holiday meals, malls and groceries are bound to reach maximum visitor capacity. Even online shopping becomes more complicated, with deliveries getting delayed or items selling out fast. Of course, not everyone can take the whole season off from work or school to get all these done in time for Christmas Eve. Don’t worry, though! Here are some tasks that you can book here on Airtasker to help you keep up with the holiday shopping rush:

Personal gift shopping service

Let a Tasker handle sourcing gifts from everyone on your nice list. Local Taskers know the businesses in your area that offer quality gift boxes for your family, friends, and even colleagues. Put the mug down, and remove the socks from your cart!

It’s important that you have a complete list already when asking your Tasker to shop. Share with them any personal characteristics or even some gift ideas for the recipient. For example, share that your mom never wears heels or that your dad loves to go fishing! This way, you can still add a personal touch and collaborate on the whole shopping and gifting process.

Holiday personal assistant service

If your end-of-the-year workload is too much to handle, you might want to consider getting a personal assistant during the holidays to make it more bearable. You can cross more things off your to-do list with someone working along with you. Delegate tasks like placing orders for holiday food platters, coordinating with your chosen charity for Christmas gifts, returning online orders that you don’t like, and so much more! Hiring someone only for the holidays can help you manage your load without incurring a permanent expense for the year.

Christmas gift delivery

We won’t want to waste effort on the perfect gifts if they aren’t delivered in time for Christmas. A Tasker can personally deliver your presents like Santa and Rudolph, but they can also arrange delivery with freight forwarders and couriers. Save hours typing in addresses, contacting delivery personnel, and confirming receipt. These can all be accomplished by a Tasker. All you have to do is wait for the Thank You cards or messages from happy gift recipients! 

The holidays should be fun, relaxing, and memorable. The rush and the seasonal expectations can add pressure to our daily routines. Getting help from people who have more time or knowledge in the preps can make your Christmas celebration more meaningful and enjoyable. Whatever you need, Airtasker is the ideal place to look and find a helping hand.
