Your Ultimate Holiday Shopping Guide

posted by D.R. Horton December 15, 2015 0 comments

Didn’t get a chance to take advantage of Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales and still looking for some deals? You’re in luck! You’re likely to find your deepest discounts during the 10 days before and after Christmas,” said Daniel Butler, vice president of communities’ integration for the National Retail Federation. Apparently putting your holiday shopping off to the last minute has a few perks!

What should you be buying right before Christmas? Check out the list below from DealNews.


Surprisingly, toys are not cheapest on Black Friday and typically see the greatest price reductions two weeks before Christmas.


The week leading up to Christmas is the time to buy jewelry and watches for that special someone.


if you were regretting not purchasing that new television on Black Friday it might not be too late. Many name-brand televisions are marked down right before Christmas and right before the Super Bowl.

Winter Apparel

Looking for some last-minute gear for your holiday trip? Winter clothing is often marked down the heaviest two days before Christmas.

Gifts for Yourself

 You will benefit from discounts as high as 50 percent on clothing and personal items if you shop the days right after Christmas. Sounds like a great time to use those gift cards.

Workout Equipment

Probably not surprising with the New Year’s resolutions, the best time to buy workout equipment is right after New Year’s Day. It’s recommended to take advantage now, as most workout equipment won’t be marked down again until May when people start heading outside to work out.


And last but certainly not least, did you recently move and have new spaces to furnish or have you had your eye on some new furniture in preparation for those holiday visitors? Of course, at D.R. Horton we understand that making your home comfortable is incredibly important. That’s why we were thrilled to learn from Bankrate that many furniture stores mark down their showroom models during this time to make room for next year’s pieces.

Maybe now is your chance to upgrade the guest room from an air mattress to a real bed. Your visitors will thank you!
