There is constant pressure to buy lots and lots of gifts to wow the children with great big piles of loot. But there are limits to available resources.
How about this time tested approach instead? Consider just 4 items for each child for the holidays.
- Something they want
- Something they need
- Something to wear
- Something to read
Give them the benefits of a frugal Christmas. This in turn may allow for higher quality items to be purchased while creating less waste.
Expect complaints. And comparisons to what other kids received. Be ok with that. Instead give your kids a great education and the tools, later in life, to buy stacks of material goods if they so choose.
