The church, the family, the charity, the relatives, the friends, the neighbors, the shopping, the baking, the cleaning, the decorating, the calling, the mailing, the faxing, the emailing, the wrapping, the bagging, the taping, the writing, the packaging, the driving, the flying, the walking, the turkey, the ham, the potatoes, the green beans, the rolls, the pudding, the cakes, the pies, the cranberries, the stuffing, the yams….all this is just Christmas and then comes the New Years and the whole thing begins again!
Our lives are so busy and our time is short, so we have to begin managing our time more effectively. As most of you know, I am advocate for online shopping and believe in the value and convenience of shopping in this manner. This year I have put together various guides that will save you time and money on shopping this Christmas Holiday. It can also be difficult trying to pick out that perfect gift this year, so I am here to help make that decision a little less daunting. When shopping for members of the same sex, a good rule of thumb would be to think about what you would like to receive as a gift. It doesn’t always work well, but it’s a place to start. For instance, I am a bath girl and I love to end my day with lots of candles around the tub with wonderful lavender bath beads; it just helps me to unwind and soak, soak the stress of my day away. With that said, here are my recommendations on what spa products to shop for online this Holiday season:
