I don't enjoy the stress of shopping for Christmas presents, yet I'm never far off the mark so I don't know why I feel so pressured about my decisions. I give the item a good look then imagine the recipient opening it and do that for everyone on my list and then talk to my husband about my ideas and then go back and buy what I would have left with in the first place.
I love shopping, but I'm not fond of making decisions "on the spot". It takes me over ten minutes to place an order at a restaurant.
I have to admit I had fun shopping this year and we added a few folks who we don't normally buy for to our list and everyone was delighted with what they received.
This year I started shopping in early November.
Merry mission accomplished.
