Have a Stress-Free Christmas

With all the hustle and bustle this time of year, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Take a deep breath, brew a cup of tea and make a few lists. Taking an hour or two to get yourself organized now will save you lots of time this month.

Are you hosting Christmas dinner? Plan your menu early. Check your pantry (and the ad!) before you shop. You might be surprised by what you’ve already got on hand. Don’t be afraid to rely on your Hy-Vee Kitchen – they can help round out your meal with a few sides or even a pie or two.

Or maybe it’s buying all of those gifts that is giving you stress this holiday season. Don’t sweat that either. Gift cards are always a welcome gift – stop by your local Hy-Vee and chances are you’ll find one for nearly everyone on your list. Maybe you’re a baker? Put together cookie trays or build gift baskets to surprise and delight special neighbors or your kids’ teachers.
