It may seem like it is ridiculously early to be shopping for Christmas. Thanksgiving is not until next week. But I hate the process of slogging through crowded stores full of items that don’t seem right for anyone on my list.
I love catalogs because there is all the glossy perfection and none of the pushing and shoving. I don’t even have to park! The people at Lego love me. All the things I’ve considered in the toy catalogs all year for the people on my list who need toys, which is pretty much all of them, become imbued with potential: I might get to buy them and see the face of that special person opening the package.
By doing all this early, I maximize my time enjoying the process. Hooray for Christmas!
