After Christmas last year, I vowed never, ever to save my holiday shopping for the last minute. Not that I was disorganized, I was just so busy with work, I could barely make time for the decorating, baking, cooking and shopping which go hand and glove with the holidays. But, this year, it’s different. I’m ahead of the game, and I can help you get there, too.
For my family, friends and clients, I’ve begun to ask what they’d like. Granted, an element of surprise is lost with this approach, but most adults know what they want (and, more important, what they don’t want), so asking them will save you valuable time and effort. Odds are, they’ll still be thrilled when they open your gift and see exactly what they were hoping for.
It’s the children who we need to surprise and delight, and those who are interested in gardening, basic cooking and baking have lots in store for them!
To see what I suggest for children ages 4 through 12, [lightbox href=”http://youtu.be/Uiw2nAnIEhM”]Click Here[/lightbox] and view my television segment. While I evaluated lots of items, I chose those in the segment based on practicality, quality, design and value. If you’re interested in purchasing any of the products I mentioned, you can find them online at the links below.
So, happy early shopping! And, for the record, I plan to do my gift-wrapping in October!
