We are about to enter what most people think of as the most stressful time of the year – the holidays. With so many parties to plan and go to, shopping, wrapping, cooking, family and travel, don’t let gift giving stress you out.
Last year I encouraged you to give and ask for time, memories and or gift cards to reduce the amount of stuff we don’t really use or need. This year, I’m doing it again! Here are some of my favorite ideas for giving and receiving gifts:
Babysitting = give the gift of a night out for your friends or family
Memorable outing = take your loved one to a play, tree lighting, concert or holiday festival.
Gift certificates = massage, nail salon, dinner, movies or 3 hours of help from Simply Organized (gift certificate on the home page)
Amazon or Barnes and Noble gift card = If they love books, tv, music, or movies
Potluck dinner = My friends and I do a potluck dinner instead of gifts each year. We get to spend a few hours face-to-face with each other and it doesn’t cost a lot of money. Sometimes we have it in January because December is too hectic.
Photo Book = If you have a little extra time, Use Groovebook.com (also app) or Free prints, Shutterfly or Snapfish to create a photo book.
The best gift of all (wink wink)= my new book – A Simplified Life: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0997835508
No matter what you decide to ask for or shop for this year, try to remember that the holidays is about your loved ones. If you are too busy and stressed you could miss this wonderful time of the year!
