10 Ways My Personal Valet Helps Reduce Your Holiday Stress

The holidays are a joyous time, full of family and friends, parties and presents, good food and good cheer. The holidays can also be a stressful time of year.

Shopping in crowded malls…planning holiday parties…entertaining visiting family members…mailing Christmas cards… wrapping gifts…putting up holiday decor…making your list and checking it twice…. and who will pick up Uncle Joe and Aunt May from the airport?

You have so much to do in the next 24 days. How will you get it all done? Where will you start?  What you need is your very own Santa’s Helper. Someone to help you handle some of the things on your to-do list, giving you more free time to enjoy a merry holiday season.

My Personal Valet is Your Personal Santa’s Helper

1. Addressing and Mailing Christmas Cards

Addressing holiday cards is one of those tedious tasks you keep putting off, but is has to be done. Simply give us your cards and your address list and we will take care of the rest.

2. Holiday Gift Shopping

Why spend your nights and weekends in a crowded shopping mall, searching for a parking space, standing in lines for the latest hot new thing? My Personal Valet can take care of your entire shopping list.

3. Gift Wrapping and Shipping

Most department stores offer gift wrapping services, but at this time of the year, the line is very long and you often have to wait several hours to have your gifts wrapped. Wouldn’t you love to avoid this hassle and have all of your Christmas gifts under the tree and beautifully wrapped with festive papers, bows and ornaments? It can happen and you need never touch a tape dispenser.

4. Holiday Decor For The Home

Nothing says Christmas like a brightly lit Christmas tree, garlands, and mistletoe hanging in the doorway.  It can all be done with one quick phone call to My Personal Valet.

5. Event Planning For Holiday Entertaining

It can be an elegant dinner party for eight or a joyful cocktail party for eighty; holiday parties take lots of time to plan. The food, finding a caterer, a DJ or live music, house cleaning and decorations are just the beginning.  Hand over your party planning list to My Personal Valet and watch from the sideline.

6. Grocery Shopping For Holiday Parties

During the holiday season, grocery stores are almost as crowded as the shopping centers. Since specialty stores like Whole Foods, Central Market and Eatzi’s are especially busy, many people leave their holiday grocery shopping to the staff at My Personal Valet.

7. Planning Activities For House Guests and Out of School Children

The presents are all opened and Christmas brunch is over. Now what? What will you do with a house full of out of visitors and bored school children? Check out some of the holiday events like ICE at the Gaylord Texan,  How The Grinch Stole Christmas at the AT & T Performing Arts Center, the Trains of NorthPark, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s Christmas Celebration Concerts and A Christmas Carol at the Dallas Theater Center. Contact Paula to order your tickets for these events and for information about other local events.

8. Making Travel  Arrangements

Perhaps you are planning to get out of town for the holidays for a ski trip, San Antonio, Las Vegas or simply planning a ‘stay-cation‘ at Great Wolf Lodge.  Let My Personal Valet take care of your arrangements.  We might even save you some money because we’ll do some comparative shopping for you.

9. Arranging Transportation From Love Field and DFW Airport

How many times will you drive to the airport this month to pick up or drop off a visiting friend or family member? With the current airport security regulations, it is more important than ever to arrive at the airport at the right time.  My Personal Valet can schedule drop-off and pick-up service for everyone in your family (pets too).

10. Taking Down Decorations

You made it! Another wonderful Christmas has come and gone. All over except for a houseful of decoration to take down, clean up and store away.  Not a problem.  My Personal Valet will happily take down and store your Christmas decor while you work on your New Year’s resolutions.

This is a short list of the many ways My Personal Valet can help you reduce holiday season stress.
