This week's Conversation Series post detailed how much I adore Christmas. It also revealed that it never used to be this way - and that the festive season used to stress me out like you wouldn't believe (you can read the full post here).Part of that stress was due to Christmas shopping; not knowing what to get, going into stores without a game plan or budget, and having to end up stuck at the shops on Christmas Eve.
I'm going to go out on a limb here (a generalised limb) and say that dads are hard to buy for. I find Mother's Day so much easier when it comes to gift giving, but Father's Day tends to be tricky.Do not default to socks this year though; they are strictly off-limits. I think there are ways to keep the budget low, while still finding a rocking gift that your dad will love.
