Let DealDash Blog Help Plan Your Christmas Party

 

DealDash

Christmas is coming next week. Have you finished planning your Christmas party yet? Read on for some tips from DealDash.

Christmas time is rapidly approaching and you may just find yourself in charge of a family Christmas party. Never fear though, as putting together a party like this is really a lot simpler then one would think. Here are a few tips to get you set on the right path, from DealDash.

Hurry, Invite Your Guests

Make sure that you let everyone know about the party as soon as possible. If you are short on time consider social media or email to tell your family about the party. This way you are giving people enough time to make arrangements to get to the party. You also want to make sure that you have a defined time for the party so family members know when the party starts and ends.  Gone are the days of using paper invitations. You can call, email, text, or even send an Evite. 

Planning the Meal

When planning for food, keep it as simple as possible. You can easily plan for finger foods to keep everyone happy during the party. If you are planning a big meal consider asking people to bring a dish to share.

Always make sure you take into account family member that might have food allergies when planning your Christmas party meal. You also might want to make sure that there is something to eat for any vegetarians in the family, or if anyone eats gluten-free. If there are any allergies or picky eaters in the family you don’t have to plan your menu specifically around them, but be sure that there are at least a few things that they will be able to eat.

Activities for Everyone

Make sure you have activities planned that appropriate for all ages. You need to be sure that every family member, no matter what their age, can participate in the activity if they want to do so. You can plan a couple of fun party games like wrapping a bunch of small gift in plastic wrap and watch everyone try to unwrap it. There are countless other party game ideas on the internet.

Other activities you might want to consider are watching a classic Christmas movie, caroling around the Christmas tree, or baking cookies together. Be sure to have a few board games out so that people can keep themselves entertained while you are busy with the other preparations.

Decorations Everywhere

Decorations really don’t have to be anything too complicated. In fact, just how you would normally decorate your home for Christmas is just fine for your family Christmas party. That will save you a good deal of time a stress in planning the party. Even if you don’t have a Christmas tree, no problem! A string of lights here or there, a wreath, or a couple of Christmas stockings will be just fine.

Win Some Party Favors on DealDash

What kind of Christmas party would it be without either some party favors or a white elephant exchange? You could win some awesome things on DealDash to give as favors such as earrings, candles, or kids items. Wouldn’t it be nice to surprise everyone with a little gift that you got from DealDash?

Happy Thanksgiving Eve 2017 from DealDash

DealDash

Happy Thanksgiving Eve everyone! Today’s blog is to remind everyone to be thankful. Read on for more from DealDash.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and we all have so many things to be thankful for – family, friends, pets, nature, and so many more things. However, sometimes it’s easy to take some of these things for granted. Let’s try to think about a few of the many things that we should be thankful for this holiday season.

Family

Everyone has a family – even if they are the kind of family that you have created for yourself and aren’t actually blood-related. A family is a wonderful thing, they love you and accept you for who you are. They are the people that you love and think about and miss when you aren’t around them.

If you’re thinking about getting some of your family some gifts this year, then you’ll want to see what DealDash has to offer. Of course, you could venture out into the cold and go shopping on Black Friday, however, opening up your computer or phone and bidding on DealDash to win your family some presents is ever so much more comfortable. Not only that, why would you want to abandon Thanksgiving dinner to go camp out in front of a store?

Friends

Friends are a lot like family, they say that friends are the family that you choose for yourself. Some people who aren’t able to spend Thanksgiving with their families choose to spend it with their friends instead. This practice has garnered the fun name of “Friendsgiving” in some circles.

Getting your friend a present or two this season is a great idea to show them how much you have been thinking about them. Don’t get them another “Doorbuster” from the local big box store, get them something from DealDash instead!

Pets

Some people consider pets their family. No matter if you think they are family or just a cute furry animal that you share a home with, they are definitely something to be thankful for. Your pet is there for you when no one else is, they are always happy to see you, no matter how long you’ve been gone. They love to cuddle and snuggle, and are always up for some playtime.

Say “Thank you” to your pet by getting them a present from DealDash. DealDash has many pet auctions with items for dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, and fish. DealDash has a great selection for all of your furry, finned, and feathered friends.

Nature

Autumn is one of the most beautiful times of the year. The air is crisp and cool, the leaves are turning amazing colors, and it’s the perfect time to take a walk or a hike on a nice Saturday afternoon. Even if your family, friends, and pets are getting on your bad side, nature will always be there, beautiful and just waiting to be enjoyed.

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! Tomorrow is Christmas! It a beautiful and magical time of year.

This has been an amazing year for me personally and professionally, and I am so extremely grateful all year, but especially around Christmas time. DealDash has been a wonderful part of my life this year, and I thank them for putting on so many nice auctions, having such kind and thoughtful employees, and being an all-around great company.

 

The fact that DealDash offers us all the BIN (Buy It Now) feature is a blessing, because when you use the BIN feature you get all of your bids back after purchasing the item that you are interested in, so you can bid with no risk.

If you are still looking for any last minute gifts head on over to DealDash and check out what they have up for auction today. It probably won’t arrive before Christmas, but it will get to you quickly and safely. Merry Christmas Everyone!

 

Merry Christmas Everyone!

This is my last blog to you before Christmas, tomorrow is Christmas Eve! It truly is a wonderful time of year and we all have so much to be thankful for.

Personally, I have had a wonderful year this time around, and though the year isn’t quite over yet I keenly feel extremely thankful around Christmas time. I would also like to thank DealDash for having so many wonderful auctions this year, I have won some very nice items, and this has allowed me to treat my family and friends to much better gifts than I would have normally been able to get them.

In addition to the actual goods that I have been able to get them, I have also gotten many gift cards at a great discount, at one point this year I had over $500 in Toys R Us gift cards that I had gotten from DealDash for a fraction of that amount. I believe that I used the BIN (Buy It Now) feature a couple of times, however when you use the BIN feature you get all of your bids back when you buy the gift card at face value, as well as free shipping AND you get to keep your “time as the highest bidder”, so it’s really a win-win situation even if you don’t win.

 

What are some of your traditions on Christmas Eve? In my family we have always let the kids open one small present on Christmas Eve, and then we go for a drive before bedtime and look at all of the beautiful Christmas lights. I have heard about other traditions such as each child gets a new set of pajamas on Christmas Eve, some other people do traditions with food.

If your family doesn’t have any special traditions yet, how about starting some? I know that while we are driving around on Christmas Eve looking at lights I am thinking about when I was a child and my family would be doing the same thing. It feels good to pass on traditions that my kids will probably continue when they grow up and have their own families.

That’s about it, everyone. If you are still looking for any last minute gifts head on over to DealDash and check out what they have up for auction today. It probably won’t arrive before Christmas, but it will get to you quickly and safely. Merry Christmas Everyone! Stay tuned for my next blog on Saturday!

It’s a DealDashingly Great Fall!

It’s a beautiful crisp fall day outside today, and I am grateful to be using all of the wonderful things that I have gotten on DealDash this year.

 

The leaves are everywhere, so of course I have been using my Flexrake that I won on DealDash this year. The Flexrake is awesome for picking up those troublesome leaves, and not only that it’s super sturdy and seems like it’s going to last for quite a few seasons. I am contemplating getting a few more of these great rakes so everyone in the family can come out and rake together. As it is, I am the one raking and the kids are the ones jumping into my piles and messing them up! Kids will be kids. If you would like to get your own rake from DealDash, there’s still time! Here is the link that will take you to the rakes on DealDash here.

Another item that I think about in the fall is my hose reel. Now is about the time of year when we reel in our hoses, disconnect them from the house, and turn off the water supplies to the outdoor faucets. My Suncast resin wicker hose reel is a great sturdy box for my hose, weather proof (so far!), and looks great next to my house. These hose reels come in different capacities of 175 and 225, but if you aren’t crazy about a boxy-type hose reel DealDash also offers some more decorative options. You can check out the different types of hose reels that DealDash offers here in this link.

The last item that I am so happy to have this season is my Pressure Joe pressure washer. It can do so many amazing cleaning jobs outside my home that need to be done before winter settles in and it’s too cold outside to do any home and yard work. Pressure washers can remove tar and grease from your concrete sidewalks or your driveway, heavy mildew stains from your siding, oil stains, rust from steel, caked mud on your lawn mower and weed wacker, and any other stubborn gunk and grime that you have hanging out on your deck or porch. DealDash has a few different types of pressure washers available, check them all out at this link.

Well everyone, that just about summed up my weekend! Thanks for reading, and thanks to DealDash for supplying us with some great items to bid on. Check out the auctions and see if there’s anything that you need this season. See you on DealDash everyone! Good luck and happy bidding.
