5 ways to survive holiday season For most of us, the holidays are the busiest time of year. From finding the best deals to stuffing stockings, it is easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle and forget the spirit of the season. Instead of enjoying valuable time with family and friends, the holidays are often defined by a never-ending to-do list. This year, however, survive the chaos surrounding the season by following these tips and tricks.

Host a potluck Instead of tackling the stress of cooking a big holiday meal all by yourself, dish out some of the responsibility to make it more enjoyable for everyone. Encourage guests to bring an entree, side or dessert they could not imagine their holidays without. Not only will everyone be satisfied, but it also will spark conversation on favorite holiday traditions. Even more, the sharing will take quite a bit of weight off your wallet. Stay connected with everyone It can be difficult to bring all loved ones together during the holidays, but one of the best tools for staying in touch during the holidays is right in your pocket—your smartphone. So this holiday season, Wal-Mart Family Mobile is offering plans starting at $24.88/month for unlimited talk, text and 1GB of data at 4G LTE† speeds, then 2G. Learn more at www.myfamilymobile.com. Drink lots of water We all know the feeling of having one too many cookies off the dessert tray. To prevent the uncomfortably full feeling of overeating, drink lots of water before, during, and after your holiday meals and gatherings. An added bonus, sugary and alcoholic drinks are nearly always at hand this time of year, so alternating with glasses of water will keep meals

Following some simple tips can help make celebrating the holidays less stressful and a lot easier.

healthier and you feeling better today and tomorrow. Embrace the busy To most, the holidays and chaos are synonymous. Instead of stressing over not being able to achieve it all, embrace the busyness. Time in the car traveling from one gathering to the next should not be seen as time lost, but rather a great time to bond with family and friends. Similarly, view tasks such as shopping and cooking as yet another opportunity to spend valuable quality time with those

you love. Sometimes the best memories are made when running from one thing to the next; cherish all the time you spend together—even in the busiest moments— to make your holiday merrier. Plan ahead The best way to make the holidays more relaxing is to plan ahead—use this holiday season as a starting block. If you try a new recipe that friends and family loved, print it off and put it in the box of house decorations so you have it on hand for next year. Save packaging from this

year’s presents and reduce, reuse, recycle in the years to come. And when you take your holiday lights down for the season, wrap them around a piece of cardboard to avoid a tangled mess next time. A little planning this season will make next year easier than ever. At the end of the day, the holidays are about focusing on what matters most— spending valuable time with loved ones. The holidays will still be merry and bright, even if a few items are still left on the never-ending to-do list.

4 tips for buying thoughtful gifts for coworkers It is that time of year when employees are seeking meaningful and appropriate holiday gifts for their coworkers and clients. While the process should be fun, because such gifts can inadvertently send unspoken messages to their recipients, making the right choice at the right time can be surprisingly tricky. No one wants to come across as impersonal or lacking in good taste, but it is all too easy to pick something that is too expensive or too impractical to make the statement you are intending to make.

With that thought in mind, consider these guidelines for buying or making gifts for your coworker that are memorable and appropriate. n Consider practicality. If the present is unlikely to be used or consumed, it is a mismatch and a waste of money. For example, even the rarest or priciest bottle of wine will be unimpressive to a client who does not drink. Before buying, attempt to learn something about the recipient’s preferences, then picture what he or she will do with the gift once he or she receives it.

n Incorporate name(s). Whenever possible, personalize your selection by adding your boss’, colleague’s or direct report’s name to the gift. Research shows people across many demographics get excited when hearing or seeing their own monikers. Fortunately, Staples offers a wide variety of ideas for quality presents that can be easily personalized for each recipient. n Don’t scrimp on presentation. Nothing ruins a gift faster than uninspired or slipshod packaging that seems like an afterthought. Make sure all of

your gifts are presented in attractive, sturdy boxes, baskets and/or bags that add to their overall effect. Myka Meier, founder of Beaumont Etiquette and expert authority on business etiquette, said of holiday gift-giving in the workplace, “It is important to gift both colleagues and clients during the holiday season, as it is a great relationship building opportunity to establish rapport while showing respect and gratitude.” Meier added, “For colleagues or junior team members, it’s typical to spend around $25.”

’T

is the season to pop up some holiday fun by creating a scenic winter wonderland that tastes as great as it looks. Gather the kids and make a handson family holiday tradition out of crafting festive, edible decorations. Popcorn is the perfect choice to pop up and eat while trimming your popcorn tree and decking out your creations. At 30 calories a cup, whole-grain, freshly popped popcorn offers a nutritious alternative to traditional holiday party nibbles. Popcorn is naturally low in fat and calories, non-GMO, glutenfree, has no artificial additives or preservatives and is sugar-free. These clever recipes can help you make edible decor or gifts to give to friends, family and co-workers. Find more creative holiday recipes at popcorn.org.

Festive Popcorn Trees

Yield: 10 trees 10 cups air-popped popcorn 1 bag (10 ounces) miniature marshmallows 2 tablespoons butter 1 teaspoon vanilla extract nonstick cooking spray green decorating sugar blue decorating sugar 1 tube white frosting with decorating tip small, colorful candies (such as sprinkles and miniature silver dragees) Place popcorn in large bowl. Place marshmallows and butter in medium saucepan over mediumlow heat. Stir until marshmallows are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla extract. Pour mixture over popcorn in bowl. Toss well to coat popcorn evenly. Line baking sheet with foil. Spray hands with nonstick cooking spray then scoop up about 1 cup popcorn mixture. Shape mixture into cone, keeping base flat to form tree. Sprinkle tree with decorating sugars; place tree on baking sheet. Make nine additional trees. Pipe frosting on trees to make garland then decorate with sprinkles and silver dragees, as desired. Serving suggestion: Place each tree on sugar cookie and decorate serving tray with shredded coconut to resemble snow. Notes: For best flavor and color, start recipe with unflavored white popcorn. You can make your own colored sugar by adding food coloring to sugar then stirring in bowl or shaking vigorously in sealed container. Add additional food coloring for more intense tones.

Smartphones are able to capture special holiday moments.

Closer together The holidays are a time to connect and spend time with those you care about—51 percent of consumers say a picture with family members is their most sought-after photo of the season. Expert tips for taking quality family photos: n Whether you opt in to matching ugly sweaters or not, color coordinating or wearing items from the same hue (warm versus cool) will help tie your family’s look together. n To ensure that everyone is in the shot and one person is not stuck behind the lens, opt for a smartphone that has a camera delay timer. On your Galaxy device you can choose a delay of 2, 5 or 10 seconds. If you have Bixby on your device, you can even use your voice. Just say, “Hey Bixby, set the timer for rear camera to 10 seconds.”

n Smartphones that capture portrait shots are great for enhancing your subjects. With the Galaxy Note8, the Live Focus feature lets you capture

Capturing the moment We all love sharing holiday photos on social media. In fact, our survey found 50 percent of consumers post more pictures on social media during the holidays than during the rest of the year, and 45 percent say they receive more likes and comments during the holidays. Another 42 percent of those surveyed also noted they are more likely to participate in a holiday activity if there are good phototaking opportunities. When taking holiday photos, 60 percent of respondents said that they would be more likely to snap pictures if their cameras had features designed for winter activities such as low-light capabilities, dual cameras, or larger

screens/displays. Here are some tips for expert photo taking this holiday season: Expert tips for low-light photos: n W hen sho ot i ng in low-light conditions against an illuminated background, turn your subject toward the brightest point. That way, whatever light there is will hit where you want it—plus you will compose a more interesting shot. n When capturing moving subjects in dark conditions, digital zoom is rarely your friend. Resolution is lost with each level of magnification, so for better close-ups, avoid zoom and move as close to your subject as possible. n If you’re shooting a skyline or landscape at night on a Galaxy S8, S8+, S8 Active or Note8, switch to Pro mode. Adjust your camera’s ISO settings and set your shutter speed to a longer time. Opt for a stable surface to keep the shot steady.

Holiday photo tips shared A photo with family and friends—ugly sweaters and all—is a holiday tradition, but getting everyone posed in front of the fireplace is just the first step. From selecting the right settings, to taking the photo, to sending it to our loved ones, so much goes into capturing the moment. At Samsung Electronics America, this got us thinking: How are we capturing and sharing moments this holiday season? We conducted a survey of over 1,000 smartphone owners in the U.S., and 85 percent of respondents told us smartphones are their top choice for taking holiday photos. That is why we have engineered and designed the Samsung Galaxy family of smartphones with great cameras. With the Galaxy S8, S8+, S8 Active and Note8, easy photo modes will make your holiday feast stand out on any newsfeed, and voice- and gesture-activated timers make getting the whole family in the holiday card a breeze, especially with the wide-angle selfie mode.

Photos portrait and wide-angle shots at the same time. There’s no place like home Every family has their own traditions but some things are universal—everyone loves cute photos. Parents with children at home and families with pets are more likely—by 22 percent and 29 percent, respectively—to take photos of these cute sidekicks. Of course, sometimes kids and puppies do not make the most cooperative subjects, so how can you capture the moment regardless of their willingness to sit still? Expert tips for reducing blur: n If you’re shooting a fast-moving subject and don’t want motion in the shot, use a fast shutter speed. n The Galaxy S8, S8+, S8 Active and Note8 feature an enhanced Smart Auto Focus on the front-facing camera that tracks every face in the frame, so all your shots stay sharp and in focus. A feast for the eyes The most popular foodie photos of the

season are holiday pies and desserts, with 57 percent of respondents noting they will take a photo of their sweet treats over other foods. Expert tips for food shots: n A straight-on shot over your plate lacks visual interest. Switch it up by taking photos from multiple angles to see what works best. n Food Mode on the Galaxy S8, S8+, S8 Active and Note8 is optimized for pictures of delicious treats. Activate it and you’ll get enhanced color, contrast and blue tone effects that make everything more enticing. Whether you spend the holidays with friends or family, inside or outside, with children or puppies, while eating cookies or pie, the best way to capture and share your memories is right in the palm of your hand, made possible by the unmatched camera quality of the Samsung Galaxy family of smartphones.
