How to Set a Gift Exchange Budget This Holiday Season

Whether it’s your first holiday season together or your twentieth, setting a gift exchange budget is an important decision to make as a couple.

Beginning with an inquisitive, “hey so something happened the other day.” She was able to tell him that someone else had asked her out and she wasn’t sure what to tell him because she wasn’t sure where they stood.
