Most of us love presents: getting them and giving them. And yet, even with the best of intentions and the most iron-clad of budgets, holiday gifting can take on a frenzied quality. How do you embrace the delight of gift-giving without stumbling into the stress that seems to shadow annual holiday shopping? In Episode 143 of Edit Your Life, Christine and Asha rebroadcast 8 tips for editing your holiday gift list without tamping down your generosity, including perspective shifts to help you refocus on connection instead of obligation, how to get organized, clutter-free (and in some cases, virtually cost-free) gift alternatives including gifts that give back, plus tips for communicating with your family so everyone’s gift expectations are on the same page.
