Going for christmas presents for the family is all about stress.
Well, once it’s done, from the moment you say “I got them all”, it’s all about relieve and excitation for giving them.
But until this moment comes, one has to be able to think of the best presents, keeping the mind clear out of the thoughts of crowds and expenses. I’m lucky enough to have a job and have something to spend; it’s something quite new for me, and a source of stress I don’t have this year. But the rest remains the same.
What is useful to someone, being at the same time sort of unexpected, creative, that will be used at least once (during the dinner).
Thinking that those people I’m looking presents for went through the same process, helps getting motivation to fight the crowds and the “blank paper christmas presents list” with optimism and serenity.
