As the holiday season approaches, many people start wondering how they’re going to get everything done. From shopping for gifts and decorating the house to hosting parties and visiting relatives – and more – the list feels endless. And adding all of these things to an already hectic lifestyle can seem next to impossible.
However, the important thing to remember, even in the rush to get everything done, is that the holidays are all about sharing time with those you love. That’s why it’s important to find ways to cut back on your own stress levels and focus on the joy of the season.
Little organizational efforts, like making a well-planned shopping list, can cut back on the amount of time you waste and minimize the stressful search for a last-minute gift.
While you’re thinking about keeping your own stress to a minimum, use that same thought in looking for gifts. Opting for presents that blend the practical and the enjoyable will ensure that there are plenty of smiles as gifts are opened. Everyone – even those who are notoriously hard to shop for – can enjoy a gift that will make their lives a little bit easier. To start your holiday shopping, consider these helpful hints from Farberware.
Everyone aspires to live a healthier lifestyle – just look at the most popular New Year’s resolutions if you need confirmation. Giving a gift that makes a more health-conscious way of life easier is something that anyone can appreciate. A high-quality 10-speed blender is a useful tool for making smoothies and soups that incorporate the fruits and vegetables essential to a healthy diet. The Farberware brand high-wattage models with 5 pre-programmed settings can whip up nutritious and easy treats in just minutes.
Other health-boosting ideas might be membership to a gym, or passes to fitness classes – it’s increasingly easy to find classes like yoga that are tailored to families too.
Is there anyone who doesn’t love a great home-cooked meal? The flavors and comforts of home stick with us for years, so giving gifts that take cooking to the next level are always welcome. Creating those meals can take a lot of time and effort, so put items that help with preparation on your list. For instance, a 12-cup food processor like those from Farberware will make chopping, shredding and slicing a snap, and eliminates a lot of work. Plus its 4-cup nested work bowl makes small kitchen tasks a breeze.
For those who really love to cook, give the gift of a cooking class experience. They can learn to create new dishes, study an unfamiliar cuisine or even sharpen their knife skills.
On the go
Most people’s schedules are packed, and they often find themselves rushing through the day without taking time for themselves and what they enjoy. By giving gifts that both help them through their daily routine and provide a bit of pleasure, your presents will do double duty. To get their day started on the right note, a programmable coffee and tea maker with automatic brewing can give them a morning boost of their favorite beverage. With two specialized permanent filters for coffee grinds and tea leaves, they never have to sacrifice their favorite cup of fresh brew. Supplement it with a tasteful travel mug, and you’ll be sending them out the door with a smile on their face.
You can also encourage them to spend some quality time on their own by giving a gift like a massage or spa gift certificate. Offer to help set the appointment so it doesn’t get lost on their to-do list.
Shopping for the holiday season doesn’t have to be stressful. Look for inspiration in the things your friends and family love to do and how you can make their lives simpler.
