5. Make others happy. Include a personal note with your holiday gifts rather than the standard “To” and “From” tag. Taking the time to personalize your gift message is a great way to recognize what the spirit of giving is truly about, not to mention a wonderful reminder as to why the recipient made it on your “nice” list this holiday season.
6. Prepare for shopping! Shopping can be a battlefield - arm yourself! Bring water, comfortable shoes, snacks and dress in layers. Carry a separate envelope to collect all of your receipts in the event of returns or exchanges. Small preparations can make your shopping experience more relaxing and enjoyable.
