For many people shopping online has become a way of life.  The convenience, astounding selection and great prices far outweigh the few days wait you have to put up with until the items are in your hands.  If you’ve never shopped online, or don’t very often, this Christmas would be the perfect time to get in the spirit and spread the joy of giving with an added convenience. This time of year there are  amazing deals to be found as retailers attempt to lure in Christmas shoppers looking for the perfect gifts for family and friends. Never before has the selection been so great as even the smallest retailers are finding that online retailing can be profitable.

Large retailers such as Target, Amazon, etc. typically have some really good sales leading up to Christmas so if you’re new to shopping online they would be a great place to start browsing.  If you’re looking for that unique gift, something that nobody else would have, there are thousands of specialty online shops that offer anything you can think of. But sometimes the retailers won’t ship to Canada, or if they do you will have to pay a large premium for international shipping and brokerage fees.  If this is the case there is still a way for you to get the perfect Christmas gifts that you have found.  Simply go to and sign up for a free account.  From there you can choose a location near you that will provide you with a US Shipping Address. You can give that address to any retailer, they’ll ship it there and when it arrives you will be notified via text message and email.  Just go pick up your gifts when you have a chance, so there is no rush if you start your holiday shopping online early this year! It’s the simple, economical and secure way to shop from any online retailer even if you live in Canada.
