Maintain a List of Gift Ideas
Long before the holidays, start making a list of gift ideas for the people you'd like to acknowledge or thank. And when you come up with the perfect idea for someone in particular, don't stop there! When another idea for the same person pops into your mind, jot it down, as well. This way, you'll always have multiple ideas to draw from. Teach your kids to think ahead about gifts they'd like to give one another or other family members and friends, as well. The more you make gift-giving intentional, the more meaningful — and the less stressful — it will be for your whole family.
