4 Ways to Make the Holiday Season Easier

Make Entertaining Easier

Release Other People's Expectations of Your Gifts

Give gifts from the heart. Give gifts in your budget. Don't feel pressured to give something you can't afford. Don't feel like the dollar amount of a gift denotes it's value. This can be particularly hard for parents who want to get their child all the IT toys of the season. We try to get BabyCakes at least one thing she specifically wants from the commercials and as budget allows we get her other things we know she'll like or asks for. If you shop online definitely join Rakuten. You get cashback from all the major retailers (Walmart, Amazon, etc) and hopefully earn enough so you can buy yourself something nice at the end of holiday shopping!

Take Care of Yourself

After you have purchased the decorations, put up the decorations, searched for the perfect presents, purchased the presents, wrapped the presents, planned the Christmas menu, purchased the Christmas food, cleaned the house for your Christmas guests, created your Christmas cards, purchased the stamps for your Christmas cards, mailed your Christmas cards, checked and double checked the shipping on the presents you've purchased online, brainstormed your Christmas eve activities, etc. etc... I want you to take care of yourself! Here is a list of easy self-care things you can do for yourself this holiday season. 

Use Basic Invite for your Holiday Cards

A few years ago I only did a digital holiday card because I just could not fathom coordinating photos, printing, addressing, and mailing holiday cards. If that's where you are this year, don't stress yourself!

If you are looking to get physical holiday cards check out Basic Invite, they are a one stop shop for all your Christmas cards 2019 needs. They have almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design, you can change the color of each element on the card. With over 180 colors to choose from and the ability to create customized holiday cards the card is sure to be exactly how you want it.

I sent all my clients holiday cards, but this being my first holiday season as a remote freelancer I won't be getting any office Christmas party invitations, but if you are in the market for those, Basic Invite has you covered! 

If gathering addresses keeps you from sending out holiday cards Basic Invite has an Address Capturing Service. You can share a custom link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. or via e-mail for your family and friends to input their address. The addresses are stored in your account and can be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders.
