Well, it’s not even Halloween yet, but it is about time to start looking for Christmas gifts. Getting your shopping out of the way early is a great way to keep your stress levels down closer to the holidays. I came across this great post on Christmas gift ideas for the emotionally distant father, which is both funny and useful. Here’s a good post on Christmas gifts for men. And here’s another post on Christmas gifts from Cut the Crazy. So get out early and get your shopping done!
Here’s a news story from Mother Jones on the “Christmas Wars”. According to the article, The Gap, Banana Republic, and Old Navy are not going to use the word “Christmas” in any of their advertising or promotional material. I must say I think that’s ridiculous!

Neiman Marcus has just released their Christmas Book, detailing gifts up to $250,000! That’s a bit crazy in the current economic environment.

For something really nice, here’s a Christmas card giveaway!
