Stress-free Christmas Gifting

So I’ve been MIA for a few weeks now, life has just been crazy busy and my time to sit down and write was sacrificed in favour of various other social activities (which I suppose is to be expected in the lead up to Christmas), but made worse by the fact many events were delayed…
