I don't know where the year went, but I know it's time to get in gear and start my shopping quick! I really don't have time to go to the mall and try to organize all the gifts I need to buy for Kent, the kids, family members, and friends, but when I sit in front of the computer, my mind gets stumped there, too. Sure, the kids are easy for the most part, because they give me their wish lists, but what about everyone else I have to buy for? What do I get them? And where do I start?
I've compiled a great list of gifts to fit every taste and every budget. From quick stocking stuffer ideas to suggestions for Mom, Dad, the kids and much more.
So, no need to cry, and no need to pout — especially since Santa said not to! Get your shopping done in one easy sweep, and then sit back with some of my Easy Homemade Eggnog knowing that your shopping is done and you can officially enjoy the holiday season.
Here's my gift guide for easy Christmas shopping…
