Ah, Christmas. The time of year when we all rush around, making ourselves crazy trying to get our loved ones the perfect gifts. And it’s always those last-minute gifts (you know, for those people you forgot) that create the most stress.
In the past, I’d either regift something (shameful, I know, but what’s a busy mom to do?!) or grab a gift card and call it good. Yet, gift cards are so impersonal. But this year, as I was picking up groceries at my local QFC grocery store, I discovered the solution to my problem! As I perused their extensive selection of gift cards, it dawned on me that by combining a gift card with a couple of choice items sold right in QFC, I could create the appearance of a well thought-out gift!
For my foodie friends, I selected a gift card to a restaurant I knew they loved and added a bottle of wine and some nice cheese to pair it with. For our five-year-old neighbor, I found a Toys R Us gift card and added a mug and hot cocoa mix. There’s literally something for everyone, no mall shopping required! And voila, Christmas shopping done!
QFC is not only a great place to buy groceries, but also has a huge selection of gift cards, so you don’t have to run around town getting all the gift cards you need for the holiday season.
