Thanks for all of the comments from those who visited yesterday! Today we were asked to share a holiday sanity saver with you (what’s the one thing you do or don’t do to get through the season?)
I try to keep stress to a minimum even though it seems impossible. Having a shopping list of gifts that have been "requested" can cause stress, especially if they're hard-to-find things.
When it comes to the kids on my list, it's fun to shop for and give them the things they've been wishing for. But for other gifts, I'd rather get family members or friends the things they might not think to ask for or things that they wouldn't expect but I know they'd like. That cuts down on the stress a bit, at least in the shopping department.
So, I guess my advice would be to not ask everyone on your list what they want for Christmas. Take some time to think about what would really surprise them or make them happy and go for it! Give presents that you WANT to give. It's a lot more fun. Just ask Rudolph ;-)
Here are a couple of recipes I'd like to give you! ~

Be sure to visit tomorrow because I'll have a fun free project for you to make and use throughout the holiday season or give as a wintry gift. These bloggers have something special for you today:
