Christmas: taking stock

While the Christmas season still lingers in the air, it’s a great time to make some notes about what worked for you this year, giving-wise, and what didn’t.  That way, you can refer to it next year and draw upon your jotted-down wisdom.

For example:

  • “I left the wrapping too late, then had to do it all on Christmas Eve.  It was a nightmare!  Must do it much, much earlier next year!”
  • “I bought cheap Christmas cards on special after last Christmas.  Then this year, when I got them out and went to write on them…I hated them!  And in the end I had to go out and buy a whole new set, because the ones I’d bought looked so cheap and nasty!”
  • “The twins have outgrown Duplo and now prefer Lego.”
  • “Tyler was thrilled with that passport cover.  Maybe get him a luggage tag by the same designer next year, as he’s going to be doing more travel.”

That sort of thing.  Some things may spring to mind immediately; others may only come when you peruse your Christmas gift list and have a think about how your presents were received.
