Face it, this time of year is stressful. How about you take a load off of your gift recipient and offer to clean their house? It might actually be easier to get a gift certificate for a maid service instead, but if you are short on cash… it’s a great option!
Tread carefully here. Make sure you advise this gift is to help after the holidays, not because you think they need it!
BTW, even if you do accidentally insult someone, they will still gladly accept this gift! So the fence is immediately mended (ment?….whatever).
