My son struggled with his Christmas wish list to Santa this year. My husband had a theory that this was because our son has too much stuff and didn't know what to ask for. While I do not disagree with the viewpoint that our son has too much stuff, I think there was another reason that he struggled with the list:…Continue

I always like to say that I am a very practical person. Really. When it comes to receiving a gift I cherish things more that I can actually use regularly as opposed to something ornamental, fashionable, or cliche. Even growing up I much preferred things such as art supplies, or books, or sheet music or clothes as opposed to whatever toy happened to be advertised that year (except for my ALF doll, I really did want an ALF doll! Ha!). In fact, I sometimes think that my love…Continue

Elijah was pretty excited when he realized today that Thanksgiving is not very far away. He’s looking forward to the “big feast,” he said.
For the last two years, Elijah has enjoyed contributing to the Thanksgiving “feasting” by making a dish to share with our families: fruit cocktail…Continue

I know that it is just now November, but sometimes the best Christmas gift requires some advanced planning. My idea was one of those, but it was completely worth it. It's an original Tried It Tuesday idea born out of need. Here's why.…Continue

I'm still new to this whole Mother's Day thing (I've only celebrated one), but so far I'm a big fan of it. And I know it's a few years off, but I'm excited for the days when Hollis will bring maccaroni art and adorable scribbled cards home from school for Mother's Day. I still remember making those things for my mom and feeling pretty solid that my handmade creation was the greatest gift ever, and I'm sure my mom felt the same way. Since Mother's Day is only a few weeks away, I…Continue

Marketing. It's a word that simultaneously excites me and makes me cringe. Platforms are constantly changing, making it difficult to reach a target market (ahem, Facebook), prospective customers are tuning out more and more because there is a constant glut of information being thrown at them, key performance metrics that trended positive six months ago may not mean much now because marketing channels are flooded with content and becoming largely ineffective.
So the question is...with…Continue

It is worse when people receive a present that they do not like. They will be forced to give a smile on their face in order to make the giver not realize that they dislike the present. People who are confused in buying the present can simply prefer presenting the gift cards. If the card is a personalized one, the receiver can use it to purchase something that they like. This can make both of them happy about the gift cards. With the help of…Continue

Every year I say the same thing, "don't overdo it, Krystal!". What do I end up doing? You guessed it. Don't we all though? You're walking through the store and those little voices go off in your head as you near the toy aisle of just how much this would make your daughter light up. Or how much fun your son would have building this with his dad. The list goes on. We're always finding ways to justify overdoing it for our kids. And why not? They're our kids! Since we want to always…Continue

Although it may be the holiday season, as far as presents go that doesn't mean a whole lot to Millennials. Like so many other issues, they have their own ideas about gift giving. Apparently what they want is cash, mostly to pay down college costs and other debt.
So much for the negative stereotype that those born between 1980 and 2000 are lazy and have a sense of entitlement. Millennials are laboring under a collective $1 trillion in debt from student loans and still…Continue
