Did your family use Giftster or are you preparing your present face?

Haven’t heard of present face?  It’s the face people make most often while saying, “oh wow…you really shouldn’t have,” or “what an interesting gift,” or another kind statement hiding what you’re really thinking: “why on earth did they give this to me?!”

Kids & Christmas Wish Lists: Teaching Greed or a Learning Opportunity?

Holiday wish lists are far from a new concept.  The annual Sears Catalog was, for years, the go-to inspiration for wish list building.  For my kids, it’s morphed into the Target holiday flyer as well as various commercials targeting them to nag me for the hot toy du jour.

But does wish list making teach our children greed?  I don’t think so.  If done with the right guidance from mom and dad, it can be an incredible learning opportunity.

The September Christmas Countdown: exciting or stress inducing?

This week marks one month that my kids have been in school.  Halloween is 39 days away and Thanksgiving is in 66 days.  No one seems to mention this, though.  It’s all “just 13 more Fridays/weekends/weeks till Christmas,” not to mention the retail outlets that have had their holiday displays up for months now.  Months!  So let me ask — is this foreshadowing getting you excited or is it stressing you out?

Gift giving is an all year thing, not just for the holidays

Show of hands: How many times do you think to yourself while shopping, “oooohhhh….I hope [insert your gift giver name] gives me that for my birthday/anniversary/Christmas/etc?”

Another question: How many people have their minds completely go blank when someone asks them what they’d like for their birthday even though they’ve seen things that would make great gifts?  Or how many kids banter back and forth about what to give their parents for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or their anniversary?  I know I can’t be alone.

While the holidays are one of the most popular times people give gifts, they aren’t the only gift giving occasions.  It’s just as important to get the gift right in these situations and why keeping your Giftster updated throughout the year is a great way to help the gift givers in your life.

No peaking! Make a private wish list for your eyes only

List makers are a special type of person.  I know because I’m one of them.  I would be lost without my shopping lists, my to do lists, my don’t forget to pack lists.  The same goes for the various things I think are awesome and I wouldn’t mind receiving as a gift.  But not everyone needs to see my huge, lengthy lists.  I don’t expect to receive everything on them but I also don’t want to forget where I saw certain things.  My solution: private lists just for me.
