Be prepared for any occasion by planning and maintaining a well-stocked gift closet. This will be your area to keep planned presents for scheduled holiday exchanges. You will also want to stock for unplanned birthday parties and just-because-I-like-you gift opportunities.
Keep a list with you of planned gifts you’d like to buy. Watch for the best prices year-round and store them away until the time is right. Be ready to take advantage of clearance deals to keep your stockpile loaded with fun gifts for those impromptu moments.
