Planning and Gift Shopping

The holidays are around the corner and in my home, that means presents! If you plan and shop in advance, you can avoid line ups in the stores, last minute impulse purchases, and stress.

I find that gift baskets are a fun way to personalize your presents based on a theme. The baskets and wrapping can be bought inexpensively, and the contents can be whatever you want, for folks of all ages.

Do you have a young children in your life? Want to encourage their creativity? Consider a gift basket of coloured pencils, drawing paper, paints and more.

Given enough lead time you can ask questions or check our what fragrances and creams are the preferred choice of your loved ones and start buying. November is a good month for shopping as many stores offer additional points on their loyalty cards, and there is a variety of cosmetic and fragrance packages available.

In this photo you’ll see a combination of creams and fragrances in my latest gift basket. All that is needed is the cello wrap and a bow…and the big day to finally arrive so the gift giving can begin!
