The GIFT•ish Guide




GIFTING AIN'T EASY! ESPECIALLY DURING A PANDEMIC...

"Love the giver more than the gift." — Brigham Young

It's no surprise  Christmas 2020 has shifted  most of our traditional plans. From social distancing to minimized travel - and worst of all the loss of jobs and reduction in salaries for most Whether you celebrate this year or decide to take a hard pass on the festivities all together - Christmas is still coming. 

For all who  want to give gifts but may be on the fence due to timing and  the scraping of extra cash,  here are a few last minute gift options that are budget friendly and sure to please. (scroll below)

For those opting out of the gift exchange, no one blames you. I myself will not be participating in gift buying this year either. Here's a  "nice and straight-to-the-point" way to just let your loved ones  in on your plans..   "Merry Christmas family/friends!! As much  I love getting all of y'alls reactions  to  gifts   given over the past years, this year I won't be   able to indulge in such pleasing reactions. I will not be participating in any type of gift exchanges, and I ask that you do the same for me. Love + Well Wishes are what I send to you all, please wish the same for me. Merry Christmas!"

Whatever your gifting plans are - let's remember etiquette. Not everyone will be bold enough to set a boundary for gift giving, so don't give looking for something in return and vice versa. During this time, Christmas should really be about  celebrating the friends and family who are still here with us and in good health.
