Holiday Gift Giving-that phrase has enough power to strike fear in the hearts of those who lack the ability to fear! It’s absolutely no secret that this time of year is one of the MOST stressful! Family, crowds, shopping-ugh the shopping! Personally-I love to shop, so much in fact, many refer to it as an addiction-but during the season of yule, even I do my very best to avoid malls and crowded department stores. But the reality is, I am not on in the in’s with those height impaired, pointy eared, super productive staff up at the North Pole, so I must pull up my big girl panties (these actually make my list, but I am getting ahead of myself) and get to it! There is shopping to be done! I decided to put together a little list of a few of my favorite things in the hopes it would help you make short work of a rather daunting task. Check it out!
Cooking Classes The gift of food is always a win! For your more “seasoned” (pun intended) gift recipient, this is a lovely experience and allows them to try a technique or sample a food they’ve not tried before. And if you’re shopping for young people, this is a great way to make sure they’re eating without being obvious and giving them the address to the local food pantry!
Pay a Bill In several states, this time of year is when heating bills start to come in-not for me, I live in SoFlo hehehe, but for those “less fortunate”, and by less fortunate, I mean those not living in SoFlo, this is a thing…Why not spread some cheer by putting some money towards their heating costs?! I am getting warm and toasty just thinking about it!
Granny Panties I can see the look of bewilderment on your faces right now…but I had to add something “spicey” to the list…can you call Granny Panties spicey??? Nonetheless, if you have a boo thing, a bae, a significant other, naturally thoughts of amore enter your mind. Teddy’s, bedroom toys and the like are often on the list of gifts, but I have it on good authority that “Granny’s” are making a comeback! And I couldn’t be happier! So, if you’re reading this babe, hook your girl up! 😉
Cash Let’s face it, nothing beats COLD, HARD CASH! It does lack originality, at least in my opinion, so if you go this route, at least be creative with how you gift it. Pinterest has some GREAT ideas!
Coupons Not for cereal or laundry detergent, but for babysitting, cuddle sessions, chick flick nights or a fancy dinner out on the town. Giving custom coupons to your loved ones is a fun way to showcase your creativity and make the gift something useful at the same time! Regardless of what you give to those on your list this season, my holiday wish for you is warmth and good cheer! Merry Christmas!
