What to Give the Women of Your Life This Christmas
If shopping isn't enough of a chore for the rest of the year, imagine how it is during Christmas: panicked crowds trying to see if they've ticked off everyone on their lists, frenzied crowds trying to make most of a sale, manic crowds plain excited for the holidays. The quickest way to side-step this whole situation is to go out with a mission: know what the heck you have to buy and eliminate the mindless wandering and needless elbowing. Nothing's more difficult than searching for the perfect gift for the capricous women in our lives. Calm down. We've done the legwork for you.
