I LOVE lists! They keep me on track, productive and organized. They also make gift giving easier for me. Whenever someone I am close to mentions items they would like to have I make a note of it. That way when a birthday or holiday rolls around, I already have a list of gift ideas. The great thing about doing this is that often times the recipient has long forgotten about the item they were admiring. The gift becomes a wonderful surprise followed by “How did you know?” because they often forget ever having mentioned that they liked the item! I also keep a list like this for myself on the fridge so when someone asks me what I would like for my birthday, etc. I don’t have to say “I don’t know”. I just tell them a few ideas off my list.
