Depends on the fam or friend and what they’re into.

Obviously I agree - just wanted to crowdsource ideas! I have enough family and friends with different interests across the spectrum of gift giving, so figured an open-ended ask would be most helpful 😂

I’ve been waiting for security clearance since July and just found out I’m pregnant after trying for a year. I’m hoping clearance will be granted in early spring 2021 and I can start work soon after. Thankfully taking unpaid time off isn’t a big issue (won’t be eligible for FMLA or parental leave), but worried about timing and telling HR & my supervisor. I’m planning to tell them once I start; know timing isn’t ideal and stressed about starting off on the wrong foot. Any advice?

May the love of this Holiday season brings you all health, rejuvenation, peace, joy and alerted eyes to the return of the Messiah! John 8:32 KJV And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Throughout pretty much my entire career, I've never taken a true extended vacation. I'm about to take nearly 2.5 weeks off and actually be mostly away from work to focus on my wife and kids. To be honest, I actually have some anxiety about it. Any sage wisdom from others on disconnecting?

At what age were your kids able to sleep alone in an unfamiliar place (e.g., room in vacation home)? Last time we traveled with our two and three year olds we found my husband needed to share the room with them and then they were happy and slept… but it meant he had to go to bed at like 8/830 pm which kind of sucks. They are now 4 and 2.5… should they be able to go to sleep in the room together without him there? Are they old enough to understand and cooperate?

Need gift ideas! I’ve been crashing at two of my good friend’s place for the past month and a half and I want to get something to thank them for letting me stay/holiday gift. Budget probably in the $100–150 range combined for both of them. They are both pretty outdoorsy 24 year olds so I was thinking something along those lines but can’t think of anything. All I have so far is a nice bottle of scotch. Please help!
