First Let me Give you some TIPS on Last Minute Shopping!
Tip 1: Shop online for that fast and easy shopping experience! Yes you can still shop online. There are many websites hosting OVERNIGHT Delivery this weekend, you don't want to miss out on that!
Tip 2: Its OK to RE-GIFT! Seriously if you have something that you have never used and feel that person would love it, go for it!!! You never know they were probably eyeing the same thing ;)
Tip 3: Get your Creative Juices Running! Yep that's right its time to whip out those ribbons and super glue guns that you haven't used in forever. Something you put effort in really speaks volumes!
Yes we all procrastinate but that's why we have online shopping!

Re-gifting Isn't a Bad thing!
II. Here are my Rules for Re-gifting!
*Don't tell'em that you re-gifted! Some people can be quite unkind about you re-gifting because they find it uncaring. But if you know someone re-gifted something don't see it as a bad thing! Think of it like this: "This is really sweet that they gave me something that they thought was better suited for me, that shows they know me more than I knew!"
*If a parent or family member gave it to you don't re-gift it! If it is something sentimental you definitely want to keep it...so keep that Christmas sweater your grandma made ;)
*If its something you used, PLEASE DON'T RE-GIFT! Sharing is Caring but don't give away something that you used and especially if its noticeable. Put that blender back where you had it we can see the food still stuck in it ;)
(Whew that's a lot of sentences with the word re-gift right?!?)
We all are Creative so lets get Creative!

Remember: Gift giving comes from the heart! It's not a gift if you expect something in return, that being said give out of the goodness of your heart! Don't look at this as being a task, have fun with it, come up with creative gift ideas, make funky gift wrapping paper for your gift, send a loving note with it! Those small things will send love into your family and friends heart!
