Here’s the conundrum. Each year in May, mom gets her very own celebration day. But isn’t mom the person who usually does most of the gift shopping the rest of the year? So let’s admit it, folks, when it comes to finding the perfect gift for mom, sometimes, family members come up empty on fresh ideas. Heck, even mom herself often feels stumped when pressed for gift ideas. But thanks to this gift checklist, you can help your loved ones brainstorm gifts mom will be sure to love.
Dad is an original. So why does he always get the same old gifts for Father’s Day? Maybe it’s time to think outside the gift box and come up with some original Father’s Day gifts. This list of gift suggestions is organized by dad types, because, after all, most dads have specific passions and attitudes that make them who they are.
As parents, we want Christmas morning to be a time full of smiles and excitement for both our children and ourselves. We hope that our kids will remember our holidays together as a family when they are adults and that we can talk about the day for years to come. However, Christmas can easily become overwhelming to children and not live up to our expectations as parents. With a little bit of planning and preparation, you can reduce stress on Christmas morning and enjoy your holiday together.
If you’re haunted by ghosts of Craziness Past, look toward ways to deck the holidays: cut out the complications, slow down, smell the apple cider and enjoy your children.
