Official Holiday Season!!!!!

Every year i like to challenge myself in new ways for Christmas shopping. If I don’t set some parameters I get totally overwhelmed by the sheer amount of options. I like to spend money on people I love (who doesn’t) so guidelines help. Here are my 2012 guidelines.

I have six immediate family members – two parents and four siblings. So first, I came up with six “standard gift” categories. Just because it seemed like a nice, round number.

  • book
  • music
  • electronic
  • clothing
  • accessory
  • home

And here’s how I’m going to break it down.

  • Hubs gets all six, plus one more because he’s the best
  • Each immediate family member gets two
  • Everyone else I’m going to buy a real gift for gets one
  • Gift card peeps get gift card versions of one of the six

The fun part? I’m going to choose it all by putting names in a hat. I’m making up my own Pollyanna.

It’s going to be amazing.
