Last-minute gifts, savings
E.J. Kritz
Age: 28
Hometown: Merrimack, N.H.
Profession: Brand development director
Bonus: Just shy of $2,000

I've worked for the company for three years and every year I've gotten a holiday bonus. I was confident in getting a bonus but my wife and I were still a little wary if it was going to come this year. I got it on the 23rd and it was definitely a relief. The fact that the bonus didn't go down from last year said a lot about the company and the generosity of my boss.

How I'll spend it: Roughly half the money is earmarked for savings to help with the house we just bought, with the other half being dedicated to last-minute gifts for my wife and daughter. It was our daughter's first holiday so we wanted to spoil her that first year so it was great that we had the funds to do that.
