The Real Cost Of Christmas [infographic]

It’s that time of year again. Everyone is scraping at the bottom of their Halloween candy stockpile, only left with the Sun-Maid raisins and Smarties they were once privileged enough to turn down. Girls in Ugg boots across the globe are taking the last sips of their Pumpkin Spice Lattes, while limited supplies last. The McRib is back to prey on the vulnerable who have become too weary from the cold to maintain a balanced and nutritious diet. That’s right folks, Christmas is around the corner and it’s time to panic!

Maybe you, like countless others, are terrified by the ratio of people who are expecting gifts from you vs. how much money you have. As much as consumerism leads you to believe otherwise, there is no shame in giving gifts that are some combination of cheap, creative, homemade, and/or personal. Even if you can afford to get everyone an iPad, they’re just going to want the newer one next year. In case you still think anyone actually wins by taking the I-bought-you-the-latest-gadget route, know that I cried at the tender age of 8 years old because I got a Playstation instead of a Gameboy Color. This is especially ironic because the Playstation was actually so new at the time that I had never heard of it, and didn’t realize it was better. I have no doubts that your loved ones may not appreciate your genuinely thoughtful gesture as much as they should, but at least it’s a step in the right direction.

12 Days of Ugly Christmas Sweaters [infographic]

I know I’m technically supposed to wait until after Thanksgiving to start getting ready for Christmas, but it’s officially too late for that. I haven’t started listening to Christmas music or decorating my house yet, but I’ve definitely been shopping for Christmas gifts and planning winter outfits. If you’re into the holidays at all, you must know that an ugly christmas sweater is a must-have.

Occasionally referred to as ‘tacky’ Christmas sweaters, they are a staple item for themed holiday parties. The best part about them is that it doesn’t matter if you buy a cheap one from the store, or get your crafty on to make a cotton ball snowman on an old sweater. Whether I’m invited to any sweater parties this year or not, I will definitely be sporting the green sweatshirt I just got. The front reads, “Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal,” and I am dying to show it off.

If you’re in the market for ugly Christmas sweater ideas, check out the infographic below. After you’ve chosen or made your sweater, remember to wear them loud and proud! Celebrate Christmas in style (or not in style if that’s what you’re going for).

Holiday Shipping and Packing Tips [infographic]

Besides the wild goose chase of gift giving, spending time with the family is always the greatest gift of all during the holidays. Cheesy, yes, but going back home, and waking up early in the morning to grab the stocking off the fireplace is so nostalgic. The taste of sweet eggnog (with a nutmeg topper), a roaring fire and the Christmas lights shining through the window brings back those childhood memories like no other.

But, let’s flash back to the stressful parts of the holiday. Oh, you know what I’m talking about – the dreaded, or beloved, time of year where I set out on a quest to see every member of the extended family (whether I like them or not). This chilly month or so between Thanksgiving and Christmas where I frantically search Etsy for a cheap, but original gift for my mom. I browse endless tech sites trying to find a gadget for the brother, and rack my brain for some hint of whatever my father could possibly want.

If one thing has changed my life when it comes to shopping hang-ups, it’s been eCommerce. Having to trudge through the cold to some outlet mall, only to find what you want is out of stock, just doesn’t happen anymore. It comes straight to my front door now. Gift wrapping option? Yes, please. Take heed of these packaging tips below – no one cries over spilt eggnog, but a broken present is a whole different story. [The UPS Store]
