Tips to Survive the Holidays

  • Start addressing your holiday cards Thanksgiving weekend. Complete five cards a night. Or, send New Year's cards this year instead.

  • Shop early in the month and early in the day.

  • Shop by mail or Internet and have the company wrap and ship gifts directly to recipients.

  • Simplify gift-giving by choosing a theme. For example: Buy a book or sweater for everyone on your list.

  • To keep packages sorted, wrap each person's gifts in a different wrapping paper pattern.

  • Instead of exchanging gifts with a friend you haven't seen in a while, suggest a Dutch lunch date at a nice restaurant.
