I know it’s not REALLY nearly Christmas (2 months!) but I can’t help feeling excited when decorations start popping up in stores. It’s our favorite season! I will admit that I’ve been listening to my Christmas music mix on Spotify since the end of August but I have another Christmas confession: I shop for gifts year round.
It’s just so much easier! I’d much rather pick things up here and there as I see them than try to cram it all in during the weeks following Thanksgiving. It may just be that I love shopping and gift-giving, but I’ve found it really useful to keep a little running digital list on my phone of gift ideas, both general and specific to individuals, and make notes year-round of likes and dislikes, things mentioned as wants or needs, and so on.
