Wise sayings often fall on barren ground, but a kind word is never thrown away. — Arthur Helps

Kyle and I have started compiling our gift guides.  This year, I decided that we should do something a little different.  While we will still suggest great gifts for  your nearest and dearest, our posts will also teach you how to take some of the guesswork out of gift giving.

We’ll talk about how to strategize a gift for a Secret Santa, how to tackle those in-law gifts that are such a challenge, and how to pick a gift that your partner will actually love.  Check back in tomorrow for our first gift guide: Tech Gifts for Everyone.

See you then!

    That power suit article was so interesting! Fun to read and nod along with my similar experiences of pulling out a suit on a random day after not wearing it for some time. Definitely gives a rush of “power endorphins.”

    I know it’s unromantic but it works every time! 🙂 My husband and I just send each other the exact URL of the item we want. 100% success rate with our gifts so far, lol.
    Luckily, with both my mom and my MIL, they don’t want any physical items. We just take them out to a nice meal and spend quality time together.
