Avoid Holiday Stress with Occasion Station

The holidays are coming, and I’m already feeling overwhelmed!  With growing families and lots of loved ones to remember, choosing the perfect gift for each is sometimes nothing short of stressful.  I recently had the pleasure of sampling a gift box from Occasion Station.  Occasion Station is a gift-giving service that can potentially transform your holiday season from majorly stressful to entirely blissful!  Here’s how you can avoid holiday stress with Occasion Station!Avoid Holiday Stress with Occasion Station

Occasion Station is personal shopper program that allows you to create stations for all of your loved ones!  You take short surveys about your friends and family members about birthdays/special days and areas of interest (art, toys, beauty, entertainment, cooking, wine, health… You name it!).  Personal shoppers then hand-pick meaningful gifts to send to your loved one(s)!  How cool is that?!

The Gift Hub feature stores all of the dates and information for you.  It even sends you reminders to purchase gifts when the times come.  Plus, the Giftspiration feature allows you to create albums full of gift ideas that you can even share with others!

Since I’ve got two little girls, Occasion Station sent me adorable mother/daughter and sister journals!  They have cute illustrations and prompts inside.  I also received stylish Betsy Johnson phone charger, because what blogger/Instagrammer/mom doesn’t need some extra power!Avoid Holiday Stress with Occasion Station


They even include a blank card and envelope for the recipient to send a thank you note!  Do you see how Occasion Station can help you avoid holiday stress?

    Wow! This is a really cool idea! I have never heard of it… may have to try it! I am always super busy with performances during December and it would be nice to get shopping done before the 23rd or 24th.

      Oh yea! I remember the feeling! When I was still teaching I always left shopping to the very last minute. This service allows you to instantly create wishlists for people. It is amazing!

    This is such a great idea. I find this time of year very busy and stressful even though it is supposed to be enjoyable! Any help gratefully received!

      I find it really stressful, too, and I don’t want it to be. I don’t know why, when the pressure is on, it’s so hard to think of gifts!
