Holiday shopping is taxing on your energy and your bank account. You create a list, check it once, and are satisfied that you’ve crossed everyone off your list. Then you check it twice and realize you may have forgotten someone. Or even worse, you start to second guess who should be on your list in the first place! What about your regular booty call? You’ve been hooking up with for three months but don’t formally date — does he get a gift? Should you bring a gift for cousin Pat? If so, do you have to add his frosty girlfriend to your list? Uh, and hostess gifts … how many holiday parties are you attending this year?
