Given that every holiday season I end up scrambling around, buying presents frantically and generally moving like James Bond in the climax scene of a movie where he has to defuse a world-threatening bomb, this year I’ve promised myself to shop early. No longer will I have to settle on getting my mom a cheese grater because Bed, Bath and Beyond had sold out of espresso pots. No more will I purchase a DVD of Shrek 1 for my brother because Shrek 3 had been nabbed already. Starting this year, I will become an early-bird. Now, granted, I haven’t yet gotten anything, but that doesn’t make my strategy any less valid. Soon, very soon, I will go shopping. And when I do, I will amass the greatest, most appropriate, least-disgraceful collection of presents in my lifetime, gleefully wrapping them and anxiously awaiting their dispersal. If you’re shopping for the holidays, I highly recommend this approach. If you have to buy gifts, why not just get it over with? That way you can get what you want and spend time on the important stuff: your own wish-list.
– Will
