Going Home For The Holidays

The holidays are filled with hectic days of shopping, planning and decorating. But once you've got all those gifts bought and wrapped, it's time to deliver them.

People often make the rounds of visiting various family members on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, but what if you don't have the time to visit everyone? How do you decide where to spend the holidays without hurting any family member's feelings? This can often be a problem for people that live in another state. They may make travel plans but even the best travel arrangements can be thwarted by weather or other last minute changes.

Simple Solution:  Send beautiful holidaygift baskets by mail.

Even if your family all lives locally, it can still be difficult to determine a schedule of visitation that will make everyone happy. When couples visit one partner's parents first every year, it may leave the other partner's parents feeling slighted. Try to schedule your vacation so that you can spend some time with loved ones on both sides of the family so that no one feels left out. Change things up a bit. If you usually spend most of Christmas Day with your family and then make a short stop at your in-laws on the way home, try a different approach. For instance, visit your family on Christmas Eve, and have dinner with your in-laws on Christmas Day.

If there's a battle over where you will spend the holiday, consider hosting the day at your home instead of elsewhere. You can prepare dinner and leave the travel arrangements to everyone else. If your parents or in-laws always prepare dinner at their house, tell them you would like to prepare a holiday meal for them for a change. Let them know that you appreciate their efforts but would like to do something special for them and the rest of the family. They will probably be delighted to take you up on your offer, and will be willing to help in any way they can.

And for the friends and relatives that you won't be able to spend the holidays with, keeping in touch by sending a Christmas card can make them feel special. Although, Christmas cards are wonderful to receive there's still something special about a Christmas package filled with Christmas cheer delivered to their door.
