Before motherhood, we were amongst those who left Christmas shopping for the last minute. It was a carefree experience that could be dubbed as an adventure if we were really behind. Admittedly, we were never too thrilled to face the crowded stores or fight over the last pair of boots back then. However, once we had kids, Christmas gifts became a huge responsibility. We spent hours searching for the best Christmas gift for girls to find the right present. More often than not, our presents were wrapped and ready for the holidays before December kicked in.
