The time of the year is upon us where we drive ourselves into exhaustion purchasing presents for Christmas and buying gifts for friends, family and co-workers. For many, the holiday season is a time of togetherness and sharing good times with loved ones. Yet, too often, this season also induces anxiety and stress as we pile on debt and headaches trying to ensure that people close to our hearts are presented with offerings of kindness.
