Find Unique Gifts this Holiday Season at an Estate Sale
Happy holidays; Merry Christmas; Habari Gani; Hanukkah Sameach—however you greet your family and friends during the most wonderful time of the year, one thing is for certain, joy and love can be found. Around the country, and the world, people are buying presents for friends, family, coworkers, charities, and events, but some struggle more than others to come up with the gift that best represents the giftee. Thankfully, this year, that can all change by shopping at a Blue Moon Estate Sale.
Estate sales offer unique and rare treasures for every age, hosted in an exciting environment. You’ll be surrounded by like-minded attendees who you can laugh and share memories with as you shop. Whether you’re in need of a few more stocking stuffers or looking for an extravagant piece of jewelry, estate sales allow you to spread more joy for your money with unique, one-of-a-kind nostalgic gifts and trinkets.
Holiday Spending & Your Budget
This holiday season, many consumers plan on bringing holiday cheer to their family and friends with neatly wrapped presents accompanied by giant bows and ribbons. According to a study conducted by the National Retail Federation (NRF), 62% of holiday shoppers agree that it is important to spend a substantial amount of money on holiday gifts and celebrations. Instead of spending your high volume shopping trips at busy malls and corporate stores, estate sales are one of the best places to find unique and rare items on a budget.
There should never be a reason to break the bank when it comes to gift giving—especially during the holidays. Instead, stick to a strict budget and make a list to help you prioritize exactly what you need or wish to find.
There’s Something for Everyone on Your List
At an estate sale, you can always expect to find something you never would’ve thought of or searched for online. From antiques and vintage furniture to trending fashions and timeless odds and ends, estate sales are the greatest place to find the unexpected—you may even come across some Christmas decorations you didn’t know you needed.
Let inspiration be your guide to finding the perfect treasure for your loved one. Shop an estate sale this festive season and give the joy of memories and nostalgia.
For the Tea Drinkers & Avid Readers
We all have a relative who can most likely be found curled up with a good book or sipping hot tea when the weather is less than bearable. For these members of the family, estate sales are goldmines. Scour the shelves for first and limited editions, or discover a once loved book that’s no longer in circulation. Is this person in need of a new chair to enjoy the story written on each page? Take a gander into the living room and possibly find a chair that is not only comfortable, but compliments their personality as well.
Perhaps eclectic teas and detailed china sets are what your mom or grandmother admire most about their home. Explore the kitchen and dining room for rare tea sets, uniquely shaped coffee cups, elaborate tea caddies, and intricately detailed teaspoons. You’ll surely be able to find the perfect addition to put on display in the already full china cabinet.
For the Fashionista of the Family
You know them, you love them, you remember the fashion shows they used to put on in your living room as kids—you guessed it, the fashion-forward member of the family. Estate sales carry a plethora of era-based clothing, most of which have made a comeback in the fashion world. Whether the person you’re shopping for is a fan of all things designer or prefers a more vintage delight, Blue Moon Estate Sales offers something for everyone.
If your loved one would be over the moon for a one-of-a-kind clothing piece, take a look at our vintage fashion tips blog to gain a better understanding of how to search for the real deal at an estate sale.
For the Outdoorsman
Hunting, gardening, hiking, drinking a cold beverage on a patio—anything involving the great outdoors make these friends and family members the happiest. So why not expand upon their indulgences and give the gift of fresh-air adventures? Head into the garage or browse the items displayed in the yard and discover a gift worthy of a nature lover.
Find anything from antique fishing poles to display in a mancave to vintage bicycles ready to be taken for a ride down the garden path. Regardless of the outdoor activity your loved one enjoys, you’ll be sure to find an item that compliments their hobbies and passions.
For the Children
Toys, toys, and more toys. Every year, children attempt to stay up late to sneak a peek at Santa Claus or find the hiding spot that reveals all the new games and figurines they’ll soon be opening. One of the greatest joys you can give this holiday season is sentimental value—so do it with a vintage toy or game from your past.
Estate sales are a treasure trove of iconic toys that bring back fond memories from when we were younger, and new memories for those we pass them on to. Share in the fun of teaching your nieces and nephews, grandchildren, and children, how to play Rock’em Sock’em Robots or race to the bottom of the stairs with a slinky. When you share in the excitement of toys and games with the younger generation, everyone wins for the holidays.
Be the Reason the Holidays are Merry & Bright
As you get into the celebration of festivities, remember what the holiday season is truly about—thankfulness, family, and love.
