Last Minute Gift Ideas

 Good Morning: I hope you are taking a little time for yourself this week.  Driven and ambitious people  often spend every last waking minute preparing for the holiday season and for a successful New Year. If you need some advice on how to enjoy your alone time CLICK HERE for a great article on the subject.   There’s no better time than the holidays to stop by and visit friends, family and clients.  If you haven’t had a chance to visit your clients just yet, don’t worry, there’s still time.  Make a commitment to visit five of your most prized clients by December 31st and you just might end up starting the New Year with an unexpected client or two.  Not sure what to bring as a small gift?  Below are 63 gift ideas from www.BetterBudgeting.com.  They are all inexpensive and easy to throw together.
