"Because I’ve learned my lesson from the year I gave a friend a half-used pad of paper."
Tis' the season of get-togethers. Whether you are invited to a holiday lunch at your in-laws or to a cocktail party with your best friends, nothing says gracious guest quite as well as bringing along the perfect thank-you gift.

Although Christmas is supposed to be a time for giving and spreading good cheer, it's also the yearly chance to find out just how little family and friends know you by the worthless gifts you get. Sometimes, carelessly chosen presents are enough to add additional layers of outstanding familial issues that are already as thick and leathery as leftover roast beef on Boxing Day.
Christmas is a time for traditions, togetherness, recounting memories of Christmas past, and of building new memories. However, Christmas also includes an undeniable commercial element! With just over one week until Christmas, here are some 2013 Hot Gift suggestions that will make Holiday shopping simple for the young and old on your list!
Christmas is almost coming and while we're excited to feast on turkey and wake up to stockings full of goodies, we're a bit nervous because we haven't started our holiday shopping yet. We also figured...
Our need to continue seeking fulfillment via Almighty Stuff is an all-consuming pursuit. Will it ever be enough to satisfy us? To fill up all those empty spaces? It doesn't really matter: there will always be another version that just might do the trick. We can never bring peace to this world under our current coma of contentedness.

"Any claim that the ministry will not be supplying Christmas gifts for children in care is absolutely inaccurate and it is very concerning that this erroneous message was sent to a client," said B.C. Children and Families ministry. We have two sources making the same allegations, an email transcript backing up those allegations and a government denying all of it.
If you're looking to save some money this holiday season, did you know that there are some great deals to be found at the Dollar Store? Although some items on this list may not be found at your particular Dollar Store, many of them will be! Save dollars at a time when you shop the items from this list!
What happens when three excited children, one grandmother and two mamas/aunties go shopping together, manoeuvring a crowded mini-van through a torrential down-pour? Santa could at the very least provide a few of his slacker elves for babysitting service and maybe a reindeer or two for entertainment. Needless to say, online shopping is looking pretty good this year.
I admit that I'm a hard-to-buy-for Mama, usually offering few suggestions of what I'd like for the holidays. But ask me what I want for the kids, I can instantly rhyme off gifts for my entire brood. This is often the case with us Mamas who put our families first, and ourselves last. So I've decided to make a wish list for the Holidays, and cease being the difficult one this year.
I've been using the power of Santa Claus for a few weeks now, and things are looking good. For maximum effectiveness, the use of Santa and his omnipresence is good for the window directly following Halloween until December 25. During this time, I enjoy the increased attentiveness, dearth of meltdowns and general calm that precedes Christmas day.
