Do you consider buying stocking stuffers as part of your overall gift giving budget or is it simply extra because you feel it would be great? For myself, I usually consider it as part of my overall budget which in a way gives me extra incentive to find the best deals for what I am trying to find for others. I find it too easy to spend too much if you consider it as an extra bonus outside of your budget.
That’s probably not the most popular answer as most would probably say that we shouldn’t think too much about money during these times as it’s about creating smiles for example. At the end of the holidays though, someone is going to have to pay for the bills. The balance of being generous while not putting yourself in a financial predicament.
