Disabled people over Christmas time usually have a tougher time preparing and getting things done. Here are some great tips to help disabled people over Christmas.
#1. Get Ideas from Pinterest
There is a myriad of creative fun ideas on Pinterest for Christmas decorations and treats. You will most definitely find something cost effective and fun to make at home without having to survive the malls.

#2. Shop Online
Most of us do not enjoy the maddening crowds seen at malls this time of the year, so shopping online is a sweet deal.
- Takealot.com – Up to 3 days delivery door to door courier service.
- Bidorbuy.co.za – Up to 3 days delivery door to door courier service.
- Amazon.com – International delivery, may take up to 7 days for delivery.
- Onedayonly.co.za – Specials Galore! Delivery up to 3 days door to door courier service.
- Wantitall.co.za – One of my personal favorites. Delivery time varies.

#3. Avoid Peak Shopping Times
The best way to prepare for Christmas is in advance. Getting your Christmas shopping done last minute is a recipe for disaster….and extremely stressful. Go at times that are not peak hours, such as lunchtime and early morning.
#4. The Gift of Giving
This is very rewarding both spiritually and mentally. There are many charity organizations who would benefit from a little Christmas cheer! Bake some biscuits or buy a few Christmas crackers from wholesale shops and deliver them to a charity of your choice. If you are strapped for cash, you can volunteer at a children’s home and sing a few carols. Get a few friends together and be much-needed Christmas entertainment and spirit.
