Here’s the next installment of my tips to help make this a more relaxed – and memorable – holiday gift-giving season.  This one truly will leave a lasting memory for those receiving this gift!

Gift-giving tip #8: Write a letter.  A “priceless” gift of experience…actually hand write a letter that passes on a money lesson. A story, advice, something that can be kept, read again and again and learned from. With so much communication being done virtually today, this old standby of an actual written letter will get noticed, and read – and that’s half the battle when trying to teach kids and young adults about money.

If you missed them, here are links to the previous tips for a more relaxed holiday:

Tip#1 – Make a list

Tip #2 – Set a budget

Tip #3 – Prioritize your list

Tip #4 – Be generous

Tip #5 – Follow the 4 gift rule for kids
