Superwoman on Christmas

The redoubtable Shirley Conran, author of Superwoman, dispenses her advice on Christmas and how to simplify it (if you wish), in this UK Telegraph article.

Among her – sometimes controversial – pearls of wisdom:

Never, ever buy scented candles as a present.

Rich people are hard to buy for, but often like gifts that are monogrammed with their initials.

Over a four-year period pare down, and eventually dispense with, Christmas cards – too much fuss and clutter (Although she acknowledges this approach is too minimalistic for most people).

Seek out and stow away great, affordable gifts during the year, rather than expecting to discover them in the Christmas shopping rush.

Be inventive rather than lavish.
