By taking a few simple precautions, you can help make sure that your gifts end up with their intended recipients, rather than in the hands of a thief.
1. Watch where you park
Find a parking space as close as you can to the store entrance and under a light, if it’s dark. Make a note of any nearby signs, poles, or other landmarks to make it easier to find your way back. Try to avoid parking next to large vans or SUVs that can give a thief privacy.
