As you're well aware, the holiday season is here and that means it's time to start thinking about what gifts you are giving this year.

I don't know about you, but I have experienced in seasons' past a lot of stress and overwhelm when trying to figure out what gifts to give my loved ones.

As an organizer, I don't want to collect more clutter, but also want gifts for my family to open on Christmas... so today, I want to share a few ways you can simplify your gift-giving so you can enjoy Christmas stress-free, and give meaningful gifts from the heart.
