Make a list, look at the budget, and cut extras out! Add a personal touch to whatever you buy on this occasion! Celebrate, spread love and peace wrapped in different colors of occasion.
thoughtful, unique, creative, unpredictable.
Now, it may sound cliché but it's also true that charismas are incomplete without give and take. Now we know the true spirit of Christmas lies in giving and the joyous feeling but it also touching million hearts you don't even know!
So for a start: volunteer and get your kids to help too.
Let me tell you a true story someone once told, malaise was 12, when she lost her parents and Christmas and holidays felt bitterer than sweet time of the year filled with resent and dark memories.
Tears rolled down her cheeks, when a boy came to her to share his ice-cream and his mom also bought gift for her and both of them unwrapped it together. But the gift she received was a hope.
One little act of kindness can change someone's life.
She runs an organization and aims to spread hope just like someone once gave her. One can save many lives and she doesn't even know who that ‘secret Santa's woman was. So familiar yet stranger!
Don't roll your eyes; little things are more than enough. Never take anything for guaranteed. Your money, family and your loved ones! Take a drive around, to soak in the feel of Christmas!
Maybe drop by to give presents, volunteer, and do something unexpected, maybe show up at a friend's house you haven't seen for a while. Decorating your home is not that boring unless you're lazy and boring!
It should look inviting and comfortable; take care of every single detail, old recipes to spice up Christmas (prepared from the scratch) plane to do everything and anything to keep the party going!
Give your kids something to play, a group activity, where they can play, run and have fun! Some family time with cousins! If it gets too much loud and messy, turn one of your guest rooms, into a kid's party zone. That would be fun!
Personalized Santa books:
Scripted is boring and it sucks: Right? What about traditional handmade cards for your loved ones, write anything apart from being overbearingly sentimental! This might take some effort and imagination but it's worth it!
Unpredictable is more fun in every way:
Sentimental is cheesy but still beautiful enough to bring the light and shine back, especially your family members! Turn memories and stupid stories in to hilarious fun moments! Show love and care, the reason, for this blissful season!
Keep the spirit alive:
Be expressive and encourage kids to share keeping this traditional alive! No particular artistic skill required, spend more time making that special, highlighting the importance of a tradition, every gift counts.
A custom engraved jewelry not just carries a personal touch, a perfect and warm gesture to your beloved ones! Fingerprint jewelry, a hand written cufflinks, a birthstone charm, or anything personal and memorable.
It is scientifically proven too!
Last minute gift:
Last minute ideas: don't panic! You can order wine or bear and add a personal touch, decorate it, add a touch of humor, use a sharpie, sounds strange but it works… Trust me!
Still not convinced: you can buy a cocktail mixer at affordable price and this is perfectly relevant in every situation! Who doesn't want that! Your friends will love you for this!
