1. Start early! - Don't be that person who has to go out the week before Christmas to finish up your shopping. Not only will everything already be picked over, but you will have to deal with a whole crowd of people. The earlier you start, the better!
2. Decide if Black Friday is worth it - Black Friday is definitely for the intense holiday shopper, so if you don't want to go out shopping you might find it easier to just shop on Cyber Monday (or even Black Friday online sales).
4. Brainstorm - Again, before you even hit a store, brainstorm what you want to get everyone!!! I like to do this in the Notes app of my phone, and it makes you think about what the person likes before you have to aimlessly walk around the store. I find that this allows me to get more thoughtful gifts, so I would totally recommend.
6. Stick to trusted websites - If you have never used a certain website, it might be best to not buy a holiday gift on it. Use the sites you have used before and know get your gift to you on time! :)
