LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - There’s an easy way to save some money this holiday season, but it all boils down to what you’re buying. If you’re looking to find the best deal, there are certain gifts you should buy before Christmas, and other items to wait on until the New Year.

Let’s start with gifts to buy now.

If you’re in the market for nice jewelry, purchase it now, rather than after the New Year. Retailers jack up the prices in January and February, ahead of Valentine's day so you'll find the best deals before Christmas.

Ladies, you can also save a lot of money if you say yes to the dress before 2019. Traditionally, wedding dresses hit their least expensive price of the year in December, as retailers try to make their end of the year budget.

You can also save huge on golf clubs right now. The price spikes after the New Year, as we countdown to warmer days on the green.

You’ll save a lot of green on high end electronics, if you wait until next year. Most electronics hit their lowest prices around Black Friday then jump back up again through the New Year.

If you're shopping around for a new car wait to buy one until early January, when car dealerships are looking to sell older models to make way for new ones.

And if you'd like to lose any holiday weight, wait until next year to buy exercise equipment as prices drop after the holidays.
