I don’t know about y’all, but I’m trying to cut back on the stuff in my house and the approaching gift giving season is creeping up on my radar. I need less stuff, not more. That and I need some sane guidelines in giving. I want to give meaningful gifts that are a blessing to the receiver, not something that they hand off at the next white elephant party.
This one is for gift giving to kids, but you could create similar guidelines for others. Perhaps this is gift certificate year or coupon year (this one can be great fun and relatively inexpensive). You might give edible gifts or gifts of beauty.
The idea is that you plan ahead for simple gift giving so that your holiday season is sane and affordable. If you plan now, you’ll also have the time to prepare and you can share your holidays with hubby and family in a spirit of joy (instead of exhaustion).
