Are you one who takes the holidays in stride or is it a source of stress?
I find I can become a little overwhelmed with the approaching holidays. While I love setting out my nativity set and other cheerful holiday decorations, the panic over finding the perfect gift seems to cast a cloud over the event.
So many people on my list are those hard-to-buy for types, who just seem to have everything. If they need something, they simply go out and buy it. When, it comes time to buy a gift for a loved one, I try to find something a little bit different, which will (hopefully) be memorable. I love all the eco-friendy gifting options now - finding an unique gift idea, made from a recycled material is a meaningful way to show our love and say happy holidays.
The holidays are coming, I can't change that.
I'll just have to remember to breath and enjoy this magical time of year, and be present in the moment. And, if I get myself organized, not end up overly-stressed, trying to find those perfect gifts.
