Take the stress out of the silly seasonNot long until Christmas now and you might be a bit like me where you're starting to feel the stress of the silly season approaching. Sure, you may think you have plenty of time, Christmas isn't for weeks, right? Taking the stress out of Christmas takes some preparation so why not start now before we hit December. So why does Christmas instill fear in us instead of excitement and joy? Afterall it's a time to share with family and friends and maybe indulge a little. The main issues that tend to arise are the stresses of catering for many people on Christmas day, Christmas present shopping and hoping that everyone gets along! So how can we alleviate a bit of stress for the silly season? Well.... we may not be able to make all your family get a long, but we can help with the shopping part!

We've come up with some tips for handling the other stresses apart from the Christmas shopping. We hope it helps you to have a stress free Christmas this year and there is more excitement, joy and good times this silly season. So here goes.....
Stress-free giving1) Set a dollar limit for each person/present. Discuss with your family and friends and come up with a dollar figure that everyone is happy to commit to. This takes the anxiety out of thinking "have I spent enough,was that present too cheap"?
2) If you can't find a gift that fits into the budget, consider going in with another friend/family member so you can purchase something more expensive. There's no point getting a budget present if the recipient isn't going to like it!
3) Make a list of all the people you need to buy Christmas gifts for and add gift ideas throughout the year, so that when it comes to buying you have a list of gift ideas at your finger tips. It's still not too late to write your list, but you may need to speed up the process for Chrstmas 2014!
4) Do your shopping online! White Apple stock many gift items online and we offer free shipping on purchases totalling $100 or more. Sounds great doesn't it, and you don't even have to leave your house! We also offer gift vouchers so if you can't choose a gift or prefer the recipient to choose their own gift, then problem solved!
