Ah, the holiday season–glittering lights, colorful packages, good cheer, stress and lots of it. While some people embrace all the activity and excitement of the holidays, many others are overwhelmed by that same activity and excitement. Even for those who do enjoy the season, Christmas is one of the most stressful times of year.
Money tends to be at the forefront of people’s thoughts at Christmastime as they work to fit holiday spending into their budgets. Also heading the list as causes of stress are cooking for the holidays, having lots of company and picking out the right gifts. Even if money is no object, choosing the right gift can be challenging.
For most people though, gifts are about more than the cost. Think of the gifts you buy as a way to show people that you care about them. And you know that no price can be put on love. Instead of worrying about buying an expensive gift, focus on finding a gift that fits the receiver’s personality or a gift that reflects a special connection you have.
