Are you making your list of who you have to buy gifts for? Checking the list twice because you don't want to forget anyone? So where do you draw the line? Family, friends, co-workers, the holidays can be really expensive.
I tend to buy gifts for my immediate family and few closest friends. But then theres the age old worry, "Well what if _____ gets me a gift and I don't have anything for them." Maybe it's just my anxiety that makes me think like this, but either way I know I'm not alone.
So the way I handle this situation is by having a few affordable goods on hand that everyone loves and can easily be wrapped up if you're in a bind.
A few items I particularly use for this are Light Shine Candles, Leather notebooks, Thistle Farms Soap/Lotion/Candles, and Singing Rooster Coffee. These are great items to keep on hand because they're gender neutral, all under $30, and if I don't end up giving them away, it's something I can use or gift them for another occasion.
