As the world split into opposing regions, then gelled back together again, thanks to technological efforts and the resultant co-dependency, region-specific norms emerged. These governed how different groups interacted, and this would affect acts as simple but noble as offering gifts. Hence, international gift giving tips to help you navigate this space.

Getting Into the ‘Spirit’: Scary Good Ideas For Halloween Alcoholic Drinks

Back To School: How You Can Prepare For The New School Year

Summer is coming to an end, and it’s time to prepare for another school year. However, back-to-school planning may look a little different this time around. As a parent, not only must you ensure that the kids stock up on stationery, but navigating post-Covid anxiety is now on the to-do list as well. And, considering that most learners have not experienced consistent in-person schooling since March 2020, ‘first day jitters’ suddenly have a whole new meaning. 

But, fret not. There are simple ways you can make back to school a success! Start by reminding yourself that returning to school is a good thing, especially if you’re a student. School provides an environment for vital social interaction during our developmental years. And during the midst of the pandemic, these interactions were almost non-existent. As the world attempts to jump back into routine, we’d like to help you do the same. Read below as we share a few tips to help parents, students, and teachers conquer a new school year.
