First thing first…
Create a budget for your holiday spending. A budget will be your best friend during the holiday season. Figure out how much you can spend on each person without racking in debts. It is perfectly OK not to gift everybody things. In most cases your gifts are probably gonna get konmari-ed come spring, re-gifted next year. So don’t feel bad. Don’t be like me, I tend to make my budget too tight and end up in trouble… give yourself some leeway for the impulse buys (Believe me it happened to best of us. I went to Costco today and went Stoopid!) and possible price increase.
