Along with holiday breaks and colder weather also comes the stress of buying gifts. Most can not decide on how much to spend and what to buy, which only makes gift buying that much more of a drawn out process. Seniors Jacqueline Pierre and Kyle Schleicher have plenty of expierence with the holiday hupla and have plenty to say about the topic.
