    Tips to make Christmas Shopping this year a little easier

     

    ChristmasClarksville, TN – Fun or exhausting, somethings Christmas shopping can be both. Here are a few tips to make it a bit easier.

    First, if you want a specific item, call ahead to see if it’s in the store. How many times have you read an ad that shows the exact item in which you are interested only to find out when you reach the shop that it is sold out? A phone call can prevent this problem.

    Suppose you have trouble reaching anyone in the department where the item is located. Ask for the manager. If the manager is uncooperative, shop elsewhere. Usually the manager will get the answer you need; after all, that’s why this person who gives better service was promoted!

    Gifts that are the Greatest

     

    The Greatest GiftClarksville, TN – We should give some serious thought to the process of giving and what it really means to show our love to others during Christmas time.

    I suspect that if most of us tried to remember the best gifts we’ve ever received, we’d find that many of them didn’t necessarily cost a great deal of money. Instead they had a lovely share of thoughtfulness behind them.

    One of the gifts I received that I’ll never forget was from a blind man who sat for several hours at his tape recorder and taped for me music he believed I’d enjoy and some of his own words about what my friendship for him had meant.

    Easy Arrangements for the Thanksgiving Table

     

    ThanksgivingClarksville, TN – You don’t have much room for an elaborate flower or fruit arrangement in the center of the table by the time you put a turkey, ham or standing rib roast and all the trimmings on the table at Thanksgiving, let’s face it.
