Has anyone considered making holiday shopping an Olympic sport? Think about it! It requires crazy competitiveness, tests skill and stamina, and takes years of training to win! Heck, in some ways holiday shopping is even more difficult than some Olympic events. After all, what other athletes are asked to reach peak performance when they’re still full of tryptophan?!
Personally, I tend to avoid going anywhere near stores when people are going that nuts, though I do tend to exercise my index finger by clicking away on Cyber Monday. I also tend to get a little wannabe Martha Stewart and make special gifts for people, like bundles of baked goodies.
What about you? What are some of the things you’re specifically shopping for this year? What do you tend to hand-make? Take our poll and share some stories and specifics in the comments below!

Keep an eye on your email inbox next week. For one thing, our monthly newsletter should be coming to you. I love when newsletter time comes! I get to write a sweet little letter to all of my MyFunCards friends and I get to do a roundup of some of our best cards to send!

Here are some turkeys who are taking matters into their own wing-hands rather than waiting for their fate to be decided for them.
Last year, my grandfather passed away. We had never been all that close; my father and he and a complicated relationship. At his funeral, my grandfather – a World War II veteran – was honored with a military burial. Now, add to the distance between us the fact that I’m not an overt sentimentalist, and you’ll understand why it took me a bit by surprise just how moved I was.
I’m an avid reader reader about war in general, and I’m a “Band of Brothers” obsessive. But it never occurred to me to reach out to talk to my grandfather about his time of service. More >
