It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s that time again! Christmas is quickly approaching and that means PRESENTS! If you’re like me and like to have a game plan for meaningful gift giving then this blog post is for you. It’s all about the 5 Christmas Gift Rule.
Five Christmas Gift Rule Let’s dive into this some more …
Something they want:
Typically this is THE most expensive gift and often something that they have been longing for all year or at least the weeks leading up to Christmas. This presen is their ideal present and the highlight of the Christmas gift receiving.
Something they need:
For this category of the “Five Christmas Gift Rule” think about things that your child/ren need. This is usually something to wear and often in line with the winter season. For example, pajamas, gloves, hats, mittens, boots etc. However, this can also be gear, so if your kid(s) are into sports, this could be a new football, tennis racket, running shoes etc. Failing these two, you can also gift items they may need for their room. For examle, a new desk, chair, headphones etc/
Something to learn with:
Definitely my favourite part of gifting! I appreciate gifts that make learning fun so this can be anything from science kits to books to learning apps or subscription boxes.
Something to play with family:
It’s tradition in our house to play games as a family on Christmas Day so a game or activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family is a must for us. What we would typically buy might include board games, card games, trivia, karaoke games etc.
Wouldn’t be Christmas without them! Stocking fillers for us are often inexpensive items such as candy, card games, socks, bath products, etc. The idea is to fill the stocking without breaking the bank.
