Well its getting closer and closer to Christmas and I have to say I'm really not feeling the stress this year due to these 3 steps I took!
Its a little late now but if you can pick things up in the January sales do!
I usually go into the shops and get most of the bargains as soon as they mark them down in January it helps me though out the year for Birthday and Christmas!
Make a list!
This is my Golden rule writing down a list of who you have to get a present for and the budget you have to spend per person
Divide up your people into weeks!
When you decide to start your Christmas shopping count up the weeks till Christmas
So there is seven weeks till Christmas but say I decide I want all my Shopping done with 3 weeks to Christmas to enjoy without the stress of having to have to go shopping instead enjoy the run up to the big day!
so this is what you could do
Mary and John }week 1
Mam and Dad }week 2
Jack and Darren } week 3
Kate and Alison }week 4
This would leave me three weeks to enjoy the Christmas time instead of rushing in busy shops!
I hope that helped out some of you
How do you take the stress out of Christmas?
