I know we are all expecting this to be a different Christmas than we are used to, and if mine were a different kind of blog, I'd spend more time urging you to take good care of yourself, especially if these changes create anxiety, stress, disappointment or sadness.
But from what I am reading, I do get the impression that shopping sooner rather than later is a good idea, especially if you already have specific gifts in mind. Retailers are likely to offer deeper discounts, but less inventory.
First, figure out the total you can afford to spend on gifts. Then, make a list of the people you’d like to give to and allocate portions of your budget toward each person. - CountryLiving.com

Don't Forget Your Fashionistas: Give the Gift of Style
For me, buying one or two new fall trend pieces, planning my fall wardrobe and even getting out my old favorites has helped add some normalcy to this season, even though I still am not leaving the house as often as I used to do.
If you have been wondering what to get for Christmas for the teenage daughters, college-age fashionistas, mothers or mothers-in-law on your list, I encourage you to consider style.
Even if the gift is small. And especially, if that is something you would normally do around this time of year.
Maybe Christmas won't quite be Christmas without a new sweater, or necklace, or whatever she likes. I'd encourage you to keep other traditions, too, like wearing red or green, if you normally do that.
For the next couple of days, I will tell you about my own Christmas offerings, as style gift ideas, and for one of them, I've added a little something that I hope will help make shopping easier. But whether you plan to shop locally, online or in the stores, it's definitely not too early to get started.
See you tomorrow!
My mission is to help you discover, embrace and celebrate your own beauty and style.
Thanks for dropping by! I'll see you soon.
