It's that time of year when the gift giving takes a chunk out of your bank account, you get sick from whatever is going around and you could really use some alone time or get together time.

Here's a dozen ideas to make your holidays more enjoyable

  1. Walk the neighbourhood one evening to soak in holiday lights - especially after a fresh snow fall.

  2. Have a tree trimming party and sing carols together

  3. Give each other the gift of not exchanging gifts

  4. Host a shortbread or gingerbread making party online

  7. Avoid sugar and alcohol as best as you can

  8. Volunteer or donate to a bigger cause in lieu of sending gifts to friends

  9. Do a fun winter activity you love ... snowshoe, skate, sledding, hike, bake, play family board games

  10. Buy some gifts after Christmas for next year and save up to 75% if you are giving
