|Lovely giftwrap idea! |
I know it is silly early, but I find that I enjoy the season so much more when I shop a little at a time, beginning early in the season.
Not only is it less of a hit to my pocketbook if I spread it out, but starting early also allows me to be a little more thoughtful in my gift-giving. I really dislike grabbing something in a hurry just so I can scratch that person off my list. (I am having a blast gathering inspiration and shopping on Etsy for special somethings for my special someones.)
By getting a jump start, being mindful in my shopping, paring down my list of recipients (I go for quality over quantity...that goes for many things, really), and wrapping as I go, I find that I can avoid a lot of holiday stress and really embrace the season and its joys.
What is your strategy for avoiding a holiday meltdown?
