Paintings truly make a great gift and is a bit more unique than your typical lotions and potions type of Christmas. We all know that mom can be difficult to shop for seeing that she has just about everything possible she could every need!

Top Black Friday Stores for 2012 to Shop
Tip 1: Compare Everywhere
The best advice I can give you is to compare multiple ads of the same product, start by searching online or in your local newspaper. Look for a product you want (for example a Nintendo Wii). Now that you know what you’re looking for check other ads for different stores and even online to see if you’re really getting a good deal, I typically like to cut out ads and place glue or tape them on a piece of paper. The more ads you can compare the better off you are, take into consideration traveling, you probably don’t want to go from store to store picking up one product at a time
Tip 2: Beating the Crowds
Some stores spend more money on advertising compare to others, however most places to Black Friday Sales. The key to finding stores that don’t have a lot of customers is looking for ones that don’t appear in the newspaper or are advertised through the TV, instead look up the store online and see what sales they have- chances are if you come across a store that isn’t as well known as “Wal-Mart”, “Target” etc… you can often beat the large crowds
Tip 3: Get What You Want Before It Runs Out
The biggest problem we come across is getting the “hot” items before they run out. This can usually be achieved online, you can find most hot products online through popular ecommerce sites like: Amazon, ebay, WalMart.Com, Overstock.Com etc.. These places may already have great deals, check early and frequently!
Tip 4: Check Return Policy
Most stores are really good about returning items, always keep your receipts and tags. There are always a lot of returns between November 26-January 1. Make yourself familiar with the stores return policy which can be found online or at the Customer Service desk within the store.
Tip 5: Enjoy Shopping
While you may not get exactly what you wanted, stores will have plenty of other deals. Electronics are always a hot Black Friday item, keep your eyes pealed for good deals- not everything is advertised in the paper, TV or even online. I have found that sometimes shopping around is the best way to find great sales.
