They will also allow you to give gifts that may be worth a small fortune, but at fraction of the cost.

1. RetailMeNot

This app can help you save a lot during the holiday shopping season. With its extensive database of department stores and brands, you will be prepared with the latest deals for your favorite stores. You can download coupons, print them and then present them at check out. It also gives you a success rating from users who actually used the app in the store.

2. Hautelook

Okay, we are aware that this is a Nordstrom company therefore, it may seem pricey. However, this app has “events” with discounts of different designer clothes for men, women, home décor and beauty products. You can save big by getting a product worth $100 for as low as $25; with free shipping for orders at $100. But be aware, it may take weeks to receive your order, so start adding to your cart immediately.

3. Amazon
Amazon is probably an addiction for some, but a rip off to others. The wonderful thing about Amazon is that you can scan products as in the store and Amazon will let you know if they have the product for less. It is great for buying toys, books and home décor. Just make sure you read the reviews and the fine print on taxes and shipping!

4. Groupon

Groupon has its own section dedicated to goods and Christmas shopping, making gift giving a breeze. You can browse through their amazing deals and find some pretty interesting gifts. This is a great app to refer to if you are considering giving gifts to the technological-savvy people in your life. They have a wide selection of electronic goodies-just look at how many people bought the product and where it is coming from. Also, keep in mind that the certain products can be refurbished, so take your time with this one.

5. Pinterest

We may not be able to directly order presents on Pinterest, but we sure can get plenty of ideas. If you want to be crafty with your gifts this season, look to Pinterest for a vast variety of DIY gift ideas. By making your own gift, you can give your loved one a present that is truly one of a kind and straight from the heart.
