Picture credit: Saga

If every holiday season’s approach fills you with money anxiety, identify the source of your problem and confront it head on with these commonsense tactics. Problem: I spend too much. Solution: Establish a spending plan. Make a list of people you want to give gifts to and list a potential gift, with the maximum amount you’d spend on it. If the total takes your breath away, eliminate a few names or lower some of the spending limits. Consider inexpensive gift alternatives for neighbors and coworkers. Talk with extended family members about drawing names and agreeing on price ranges. Bring your

blogg80

Every thing about weddings is changing. Unlike in the past, some brides now have a second and even third dress, bridesmaids/groomsmen now double as choreographers, reception parties now go on almost endlessly, more food is now available(don’t lie, were there small chops and dessert at weddings back in the day?) among many other changes. While couples are going all the way with the aforementioned, it is only right, that guests up the wedding gifts game too! Weddings aren’t what they used to be back in the day, so wedding gifts should not be. The following items do not belong in

Why You Really Should Register for Wedding Gifts, According to a Wedding Planner

Photo credit: www.weddingpaperdivas.com

Now more than ever, my clients keep telling me that they’re not sure they want to register for wedding gifts. They feel like so many guests are spending money, and taking time, to be there for them on their big day, that it’s too much to expect an expensive wedding gift, too. “Your presence is present enough,” is a common theme. As a wedding planner, this makes me cringe for two reasons.

Almost anybody can see that the wedding culture in Nigeria has changed dramatically over the last 10 to 15 years, not only has the wedding industry seen an explosion in recent years but wedding ceremonies themselves have evolved into something that is a far cry from what our parents had some 20 something odd years ago. In particular, one thing that has caught my interest is the gradual fading away of the idea of presenting couples with gifts on their wedding day, the very idea would even seem passé to most. Most would reason, after spending probably the equivalent of

35 BEST FIRST BIRTHDAY GIFT IDEAS

Photo credit: www.youtube.com

The first year of a child’s life is the toughest year for the parents. The parents have to face the hardest trials of parenthood. Therefore, the first birthday celebrations are more for the victory of the parents, rather than for the child. Besides, the one year old would have absolutely no clue about what is happening around him, why is everyone around him or her making such a big fuss about the day, or even that a fuss is being made about the day. Thus, when selecting a gift for the 1st birthday celebration of a child, it is important

6 Ways to Handle Gift Giving on a Tight Budget

While it may be better to give than to receive, sometimes, giving hurts. If you’ve ever looked at your bank account just before the holidays (or right before a slew of family birthdays), you know what I’m talking about. Even the most generous of people can feel a pinch when the expense of giving ends up eating into next month’s grocery bill. The reality is, most people have been there. If your college years were particularly tight, or if you’ve known the ache of trying to care for a family after losing a job, chances are your family and friends

7 Terrible Wedding Gifts No Couple Could Love

Some brides and grooms want porcelain gravy boats they will never, ever use, but can show off to visitors. Some want Le Creuset cookware, fancy towels, and wine racks because, well, who doesn’t? Some just want money for the honeymoon, a down payment on a house, or — let’s be honest — cash to pay off the wedding vendors. Few couples, however, have dreamed of cementing their relationship with matching underwear, sentimental tchotchkes, or his-and-hers/hers-and-hers/his-and-his branded bedding. And yet, the marketplace is flooded with them. For some reason, simply buying the place setting or NutriBullet that couples reallywant and have
