Holiday Talk

Ease up on holiday pressure and gift planning.

Here are 5 tips to help!

  1. Make a list of the people you want to remember this season, family, friends, or colleagues. Don’t forget yourself… after all, the end of the year is a good time to treat yourself!
  2. Consider what type of gift will bring them the most joy, or surprise and write the gift ideas beside each name. Be creative – see our suggestions on page13.
  3. If it is a must-buy gift, estimate how much money you’d like to spend and write it on your gift list. Add it up so you have an idea if it fits your budget.
  4. If it’s a get together for a meal, either out or at home, write down if it’s a brunch or dinner and the date – don’t overbook yourself.
  5. Save the list for next year so it’s ready to use, with extra ideas you didn’t use this year.
