**Holiday Guide for Stocking Stuffers and Family Gifts!**

***Giftcardmall***


I love deals like this now that the holidays are over I look for ways to save big and giftcardmall is the best way to get the most for your money. 
While you may not have heard the name, you've certainly seen Gift Card Mall end-caps and kiosks in your local Safeway, Kroger and other grocery and convenience stores. They offer a huge array of gift cards to choose from, and when purchased from a grocery retailer, consumers can receive special deals, including money off a gift card, and gas savings. 
  • Kroger Digital coupon deals- (http://bit.ly/1empSQv) Save $10 when you buy 2 gift cards (GAP, Banana Republic, GAP Baby, Old Navy) good through 12/31
Still want to buy that sweater at GAP, instead of giving a gift card? Go for it! But, buy the gift card at Safeway first, so you can save $10 instantly - then head over to the GAP to purchase the sweater with your $50 gift card, that you only paid $40 for.

From holiday cooking disasters to proper party etiquette, holiday events often prove to be a point of stress during what should be the happiest time of the year. In fact, it turns out that that hosts spend more time in the kitchen than visiting with guests. According to a recent Kenmore survey, Americans spend 5 hours in the kitchen preparing food and drink and cleaning up for their holiday parties.

Holiday hosts aren’t the only ones with party prep issues. According to the Kenmore survey:
·              The no. 1 area Americans need holidays help with is finding the perfect gifts and 85 percent of Americans have struggled to find a unique gift for a holiday party host and often arrive with no gift (party foul!)
·              79 percent of Americans prefer a practical gift that they could use in their home over a trendy novelty gift
o   Eliminate unnecessary stress with a little gifting sensibility like a great blender or stand mixer
·              Cleaning up is one of the main holiday hosting party poopers – 85 percent of Americans have avoided making a certain food because of the cleanup associated with it
