But keep it reasonable and don’t blow the bank or go beyond your limits.
Don’t throw all personal finance principles out the window for the month of December. It would be sad if you were going steady for the entire year, only to blow it all in December. Then you’d be back at square one.
Worse yet, if you go into bad debt, you’re doing yourself a huge disservice. Once the festive December passes, you’ll be greeted with a terrible sobering new year.
Remember, generosity is not just about the amount of money we spend on our gifts. The thoughtfulness of the gift choice also counts!
Furthermore, time is another great way to be generous too. Spending quality time with others or lending them a helping hand can go a long way!
