Take note of these 5 simple tips to help you survive the holiday shopping rush:

1. Be early.  They really mean it when they say that the early bird catches the worm so, like we said, be early, so early that you're at the mall even before it opens and run if you have to.

Because with the amount of people trying to get their shopping done, you wouldn't want to be trampled on and end up missing on all the good deals.

2. Wear comfy footwear. You're going to be walking for hours on end as you hunt for the perfect gift so you can't just strut around in your favorite pair of heels—unless you want to feel pain throughout your shopping trip.

3. Be on the lookout. There will be girls who are willing to do anything to get that last dress on the sale rack. So keep your eyes open and stay as far away as possible.

4. Make a list and know what you want. Don't just idly stroll along aisles or just go in the walk in the store without knowing what to shop for. Write down everything you want or need and make sure to grab it instantly.
