Got your gift shopping done? Before we get too much closer to the big day, here’s something you could do now (or at least before next year’s Christmas) to reduce the load on both your time and your bank balance…
Agree not to exchange gifts.
There are some people we want to buy for, like children. There are others we buy for out of habit or a sense of obligation. If you bring up the subject of not exchanging gifts, don’t be surprised if family and friends fall down on their knees in gratitude for the suggestion!
And anyway, what do you buy someone who has everything?
