Christmas shopping can be so stressful and it really makes no sense. I am one of those that gets stressed out because I am the absolute WORST gift giver ever! Mainly because I have champagne taste on a well water budget. I am also a nonmaterialistic person so I never know what to get anyone. When I finally find the impossible gift, I feel like it is never enough. Hence the stress of Christmas shopping. Christmas isn’t about the gifts, I know this already, but it would be nice to give something meaningful or useful and not something that will get shoved in the back of the closet.

What do you get for people that have everything? When all else fails, personalized gifts can be fun. For the sports lovers, I usually get a personalized t-shirt or mug with the favorite team. Ornaments for the tree are a nice little gift to give. Hot cocoa, coffee or tea mug sets make a nice gift that can be used. If you are crafty, there are plenty of DIY ideas on Pinterest. The trick is, knowing the person you are buying for. If it so happens you do not know the person very well, stick with a generic gift like a candle , scarf or a fuzzy blanket. One can never have too many blankets! Last but not least, gift cards are a great gift. I sometimes throw in scratch off lottery tickets, ya never know, that could be the best gift of all if it’s a winner. Now do you see why I am the worst gift giver? Merry Christmas and happy shopping!!!
