Many of us rush around the couple days before Christmas or Hanukkah to find the perfect gifts for our loved ones. But we have a suggestion: start thinking about gifts now! The more time you give yourself, the more ideas will come up naturally, rather than having to force yourself to think of ideas last-minute. You can approach your holiday shopping with more relaxation and joy. It’s also easier on your budget to spread out your gift-buying over a couple months. And, it extends that giving, generous holiday spirit even longer! You’ll build up even more excitement for the holidays, and to give your gifts to your friends and family.
