We have finished the majority of our Christmas shopping this year. I love Christmas shopping for other people - so fun. I love finding that perfect gift and then trying to keep my mouth shut about it!! The only gift that we have yet to get is KayLynn's. (Oh wait, and ours!)
This has me wondering how you do it. How do you decide what/how much to buy your children? I understand teaching your children about the true meaning of the season - we do that...but we also buy gifts and now that KayLynn is at an age when she kinda gets it, I am wondering what you all do.
I have read several articles today about this very thing, and mostly I am disgusted at how much people spend on their kids. I also read this article, that I enjoyed. I liked the simplicity of the idea to give your children gifts from the following categories: Need, Want, Read, Wear.
So, how do you do it? And also how do you do it with more than one (same #, same $)? Oh and if you could tell me your reasoning that would be wonderful as well.
