Can’t remember everyone’s name at the party? Name badges to the rescue!

Monday, December 29th, 2008

Over the long holiday weekend, my husband and I went to many gatherings, some with people we see weekly and some with people we only see once a year. I am usually good remembering names, but when you are introduced to ten or so new people in the span of twenty minutes, all while you are trying to hang up your coat, take off your snow boats, and settle in to the party, it can be tough. Hello My Name Is badge

It made me think that next time, we need name badges! It does not matter if they are elaborate tags set in plastic name badge holders or as simple as a self-branded “hello my name is” badge.

The Holidays on a Budget

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

With the state of the economy right now, many people are starting to cut back in their gift spending. We all know that before you know it, all the gifts can certainly add up! But the holiday season does not have to break the bank. There are many ways to enjoy the gift giving season with your friends and family.

  1. Set up a gift exchange. Is there a certain group of people you always exchange gifts with? Instead of giving a present to each person, exchange names (in secret or not) and buy just one present for the person you picked. Usually, this means the price range is a bit higher, but you save money overall because your are not buying multiple presents.
  2. Gift giving does not always need to mean extravagance. Just the other day, a friend of mine told me a story about getting his neighbor a special type of sheet protector with black paper she had been searching for. It is inexpensive (about $10 for the box) and maybe not a traditional holiday gift, but I’m sure she loved it even more. Remember, it is not about the cost, but the thought of the gift given.
