Avoid the Lines & Cuddle Up with a Cozy Wrap: The Introvert's Guide to Holiday Shopping {+ Richard Leeds International Giveaway} #GiftIt

This is a sponsored post for Richard Leeds International, organized by Southern Mom Loves. All opinions are my own.



'Tis the season to be... shopping!

That's right, it's Black Friday- the busiest shopping day of the year! Perhaps you're reading this as you prepare to head out to beat the crowds...or maybe you've already come home to recover. Maybe you're even avoiding the whole thing. No matter how you're spending your day, it's clear to see- Christmas shopping season is ON.

The bargain shopper in me loves all these Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Christmas deals... seriously there is no other time of the year that you can buy just about anything at such low prices. Still, the socially anxious side of me...? Well, I'd much rather stay home! Today, I'm sharing my top 3 tips for getting the deals...without fighting the crowds.

The Introverts Guide To Holiday Shopping


  1. Shop Early. I know, I know...the best all around deals are found on Black Friday, but if you shop throughout the year, you might find even better deals. Search for clearance deals and stock up when you find them. Keep a gift closet and add to it throughout the year.
  2. Enlist a Friend. While us introverts might not enjoy the crowds, there are others who thrive on it...or at least those that can tolerate it! My mom is like me and doesn't do crowds, so instead she gives my sister a list to pick up while she's out. She's able to take advantage of those in store deals without going out herself. Win/win.
  3. Shop Online. Did you know that you can get many of the same deals you'd find in store online as well? This is my personal favorite way to shop! Stay home in your PJs, cuddle up with a cup of coffee and shop, shop, shop! Not only do you get to avoid the crowds, but its a lot easier to hide from the kids too!

Of course, no introvert's holiday season would be complete without the perfect blanket to cuddle up with. This year, I'm covered with the new Cozy Wraps from Richard Leeds International:

Wrap up at night with this cute creature. This ladies Sleep Cozy Wrap Robe features a hood with 3D elements like a face, ears and fur to add to the likeness of the animal. Made with a front closure to secure the wrap in place so you stay warm and cozy. The attached mitten allow you the use of your hand all while keeping them warm, this is perfect for changing the channel while lounging on the couch. This wrap robe is perfect for a winters nap. Available in an assortment of graphics, prints and fun creatures.



Over the last year, I've had the chance to try out a few different PJ styles from Richard Leeds International, and they have all had a few things in common. First and foremost, the comfort! These PJs have been the softest I have ever felt. So soft in fact that I often find my children petting me as I wear them. But they aren't just super soft, they are crazy cute as well with their wide variety of fun character styles. Cute and comfy- these are the words that I have come to associate with Richard Leeds!

And the Cozy Wrap was no different! It is the same crazy soft material I have come to love. And the styles? Well, this just might be the cutest ones yet! I received the super fun Dino style, but it's just one of many. Other styles available are- Shark, Panda, Unicorn, Zebra, Giraffe, Cow, Cat, Olaf, Hello Kitty, Minion, & Eeyore! No matter which style you go with, the details are fantastic. From head to hands, it's all been thought of. I love the 3D look of the hood, but my favorite has to be the mittens. I love this fun detail to really make it 100% unique...not to mention warm!



With this Cozy Wrap, I can beat the crowds and stay at home, shopping from the comfort of my couch, all wrapped up!
