This holiday season, you can simplify your day-to-day tasks to focus on spending time with family and friends. Here are four tips that can help:
• In lieu of elaborate dinner parties, invite friends and family over for brunch or lunch.
• Memberships to a theater or museum make great gifts that can bring pleasure all year and help support the community.
• Donate to a charitable cause or nonprofit in a special someone’s name.
• Incorporate your favorite bakery’s bread or cookies into a gift basket with tea towels, fruit and a bottle of sparkling cider or wine.
