Making Christmas stress free

Posted by Colleen McKie Categories: Advice, Editorials, How To, Humor

Well, no more!  I am embracing a peaceful, calm Christmas this year with lots of caroling and little wrapping.  Now, what I ideally would like to do is forgo the gift giving completely and maybe just give everybody on my list happy thoughts, but I have a feeling that wouldn’t go over all that well.  So I am doing the next best thing and bringing out two secret weapons: gift cards and gift bags.

Really, whoever invented gift cards is my second favorite person in the world, behind only the inventor of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.  Gifts card are so easy they should almost be illegal. Instead of the normal month of shopping, this year it took about, oh, two hours?  And that included stopping at my favorite cafe and having a candy cane coffee.  A trip to the dollar store to get some gift bags and I was all done.

Now I can spend my Christmas holidays on something much more important:  cheesy Christmas movies and mulled wine.
