In this post: Looking for the easiest way to do your Christmas shopping? Shop from the couch or your bed to find these awesome gift ideas with eBay online shopping.⇒
Do you love driving to a crowded mall, circling the parking lot five times to find a spot you have to fight for and then entering the shopping center to find blistering noise and long lines everywhere?
Yeah, me neither.
But who among us has the presence of mind to shop months in advance before the crowds arrive?
Instead I have found the easiest Christmas shopping involves curling up in a blanket with a cup of tea, a fire crackling in the fireplace and a whole lot of pillows scattered to support my quest.
Shopping online has become one of my favorite pastimes, not only for the holidays, but all year long. It’s my go-to activity when I want a respite from stress and is the best way to find unique items, save time checking for availability, and save money comparison shopping.
If you’re not yet comfortable shopping online, especially for Christmas gifts for your closest family and friends, this shopping guide full of holiday gift ideas will provide some guidance and inspiration.
I’ve divided it into categories for your convenience and under each section there’s a link to even more ideas.
There’s a range of prices, so don’t be discouraged if you see something that’s too high or, on the flip side, not special enough. Keep on scrolling for a broad array of options. While I couldn’t cover them all, I’ve tried to touch on some popular categories that you may not have realized you could find on eBay. And best of all, most of the items are either hard to find elsewhere or better priced here.

Porcelain and Ormolu
This is one of my current favorite decor categories. There’s a blue and white vase that many readers have been asking about for quite some time. I finally found it and linked it here, as well as many other gorgeous pieces!

A popular category for gift giving, you’ll find classic gold and diamond pieces along with trendier ones, including David Yurman. There are bracelets, earrings, pendants and rings. Almost everything here is on sale, too.
A wonderful curated collection of mid-level designer leather goods at fabulous prices. Almost everything is under $100 and includes Michael Kors, Coach, Kate Spade, Tory Burch and more.

I wanted to include a second decor category and this fun high-low, new-vintage mix pairs elegant crystal pieces with rustic and rugged selections, as well. There’s color as well as neutrals, refinement along with primitive.

For the favorite geek in your life, or for your own inner geek, this grouping includes off price items you may’ve been looking for for a while. Read the descriptions carefully to be sure you know what you’re getting, but most are brand new items, while sometimes not the newest model. Price savings can be significant.

Is there really any reason to brave the chaos at the mall when a better, more efficient and far more pleasant option exists? Yes, there are times when you want to touch the fabric or try on the item to check the fit. But now that online shopping has become more sophisticated and return policies are ever more convenient, it’s simple enough to overcome the obstacles that once prevented people from shopping this way.
Who needs to worry about the weather or the traffic in getting around town? Just fluff the pillows, pour a cup of your favorite drink and the world is at your fingertips with eBay online shopping.
You can even play Christmas music if you like.
