Budget Christmas items for your family

Christmas is on its way and many of us are anticipating the holidays. But not only are we thinking about the celebrations, but the gifts we are to give and receive. The issue of gift items bothers many of us because we have a lot of people to give with a limited budget allowance. If you fall into this category, wipe off your sweat, because I have got it all figured out for you.

Do you want to surprise a special one with a useful electronic gadget? Do you have a gamer dude (or gal) that you want to make happy this holidays? Are you worried that it will be too expensive to afford on your Christmas budget? Then you can try:

Budget laptops: Laptops don’t have to be expensive to have a good experience with. Check out these awesome laptops with great gaming experience for budget price. I’m sure your friend or family member will be exceedingly greatful to you.

You want to give out a gift that is not techy or electrical. Then you can try out clothing.

Cheaper clothing items with good quality exist and they make great gift items. Some clothing pieces online are budget items to surprise your loved ones with.

Beanie: Beanies are cute, useful and sweet. They can be given to both sexes as they come in various shapes, styles and textures. You can get these for your younger ones, spouse and even the Gramps.

Bow tie: A bow tie is also a cheap and useful budget gift item for your male loved ones (and female ones who are into that fashion style). It does not look tacky as a gift and it will be well appreciated.

Cap: A cool looking face cap makes a great idea for a budget gift item. You can find many nice caps below 10 dollars online.

Funny gifts: Getting your loved ones an item that will tickle their funny bone will make the holidays more cheerful. A book with a funny title about a random thing is a good choice and there are many budget options for this one.

Scarf: A scarf is always a classy option. It is never too cheap nor too expensive, as its function of fashion and to warm the necks of people never gets old. You can show your family and friends that you think warmly of them (pun intended) by getting them a cozy scarf.

Clutch: Which lady does not want a nice looking clutch. A clutch is stylish, fashionable and it does not have to be at an hefty price to be beautiful.

Wallet: These are easy to find and come as cheap as possible. Let your loved ones have a new place to keep their money. There are a handful of design to suit even the most picky snob’s taste.

Note pad: Yep, you have no idea how many people are looking for things to write with. There are fancy note pads that come at any price. Especially if your loved one is the writing type, this budget item will be greatly appreciated.

If you don’t think that you can have inexpensive great items this Christmas, you’re mistaken. There are plenty of items that I can’t even begin to list that will give you a quality Christmas experience without the feeling of buyer’s remorse that comes after. Allow yourself to enjoy the holidays because I believe that you’re at ease now with all the budget items presented here. Happy holidays in advance!

Does God hate?

This is one question many do not have the answer to. However, it is an important one. God does hate. From a biblical perspective, God has hated, hates and he still will hate. Esau was hated by God, God hates workers of evil (yet he loves them and wants them to repent?), God hates the devil. Some holier than thou people try to shame others out of hating. 

They say, “but God does not hate, God is love”. Just as God is love, He is also vengeance and hate. There is such a thing as righteous anger you know? The same goes for hate. Hate can be righteous. Tell me anyone who loves satan (that is not a satanist or worker of evil)?

 We have enemies in this world that we can never win over. The question is should we love them? If God hates certain things, can we also? My answer is yes. The difference is not letting hate consume you as it does to some unforgiving people. Hate sets the boundaries of what you stand for and the things you are not for. I cannot expect someone to love the devil, why then will we expect ourselves not to hate him?

Can you do something about life’s unfairness?

Let me tell you a story. Imagine growing up in an impoverished home, always having difficulty possessing what many others seemed to have easily. To make things worse, being told consciously and subconsciously that you won’t amount to anything. Then imagine on the other side of the fence, there is a child who was born rich, was always taken to the best schools, given the ability to own a fashion line as a teenager. 

If you compare these stories, I’m sure you will say life is unfair. After all luck is what makes you be born into a certain family/ place and not another. But that is just the surface of things.

Digging deep, you will find that life is not that plain. I’m sure if you were omniscient, there will be a level of unfairness you will spot in each lives, just as levels of luck and fairness. The mental reasoning of painting life as fair or unfair is wrong. Life is a myriad of colours and cannot be simplified to just that.

Life can be unfair to some extent as life can be lucky. The girl born poor might be lucky to have good friends while the girl born rich could be the lonely and rich kind. The girl born poor due to social conditioning might not aspire to do more but she is free from the pressures of anticipation. The girl born rich might enjoy the virtually free luxuries of life but might be under more scrutiny by the public.
Even with all this, the concepts of fair and unfair varies in situations and persons. A 19 year old girl getting breast cancer can be seen universally as unfair. But an 80 year old man who dies with dementia might not be considered in the unfair spectrum by most. But who knows, the man might not had wanted to die yet, or have lived a wasted life with no meaning. 

The most important things about life is choice, faith, God , hope and joy. This is because these are the things we have control over. We can decide to choose to do better in our lives. We can decide to have faith and believe in God. Hope and joy can be ours for free. I will lay emphasis on choice for now. 

Imagine if that the girl born poor decides that she will achieve financial security in her life. So, she works smart, tries a lot of things, abandoning that which does not work and sticking to the things that brings results. Even if this poor girl has anxieties and inferiority complex, because she has made a choice to work on them- life becomes more fair. The girl born rich also has the ability to choice her destiny. She can remain shallow and rich or decide to change her world and develop deep relationships. The girl born rich might also become poor, depending on her choices.

So yes, life can be unfair due to the random occurrences before our birth. But after our birth what we choose to do with life is our choice
