I know I made a shocking statement on Instagram (@orgbycato) for a stressless gift giving Holiday, but since you insist...
Here are 3 ways to make it less stressful:
Only give gifts to the children in your lives. After all, if you look at all the gift giving for Christ, and the gift giving from Santa, NONE of them were for adults!
Only give gifts to the people you will see on Christmas or Christmas Eve. I am a member of a VERY large family, but we all do not see each other during the Holidays. In the past, I have held on to wrapped gifts for individuals right up to my birthday (in April).
If you don't know what to give someone (I'm speaking about adults here), then don't give them anything. A huge part of the stress is that you don't know what to gift someone, and you drive yourself chestnuts nutty trying to figure it out. STOP! I am sure that person loves you with or without the gift.
Okay, now off you go into the Holidays. May it be joyful, merry, and full of great new memories!
