Plan For The Holidays (Without Losing Your Mind) Part I – Gift Buying


 We all have one: that friend or family member that is “impossible to buy for.” Every holiday you puzzle and stress over what to get them, or how much to spend. If you’re like me, you keep putting off deciding on their gift, only to give up and settle for giving them a gift card. While gift cards are great at times, it is nice to surprise someone with an actual object that can be wrapped. A well planned gift has more meaning. Like it or not, present shopping can be one of the most stressful parts of the holidays. This year, make it simple by following the gift guides below! Start by making a list of everyone that you are buying for, and what your spending limit is. Make it your goal to have the tough people’s presents purchased by Thanksgiving. This will alleviate a lot of stress once December hits. Also, count in a person’s age when coming up with gift ideas. Considerably ages 13 to 40 are going to require the more pricey gifts, where as middle aged and older will appreciate memorabilia or handmade items such as a photo album. The most important thing to remember is not to get so caught up in buying that you forget to enjoy the other aspects of the upcoming festivities. After all, Christmas is only 7 weeks away! Check back next week for Part II – Holiday Style.
