This Christmas we're celebrating like Jesus did. In an effort to keep more of the focus on Him, we're giving three gifts each to our children, just like He received.
My kids didn't flinch when we shared this idea (not ours, but a first for our family) with them. I think that says a lot.
It took a lot of discipline and careful thinking to pick just the right things...some learning (a sewing machine for my oldest (proud that I got it for $50 on Black Friday), some classic (a peeing baby doll for my toddler) and some for physical activity (a new scooter for my son).
Do you do a certain number of gifts or limit it in dollar amount?
Thanks to Whiplash for sending our family a scooter to review (my daughter, a Ripstick PRO, tried this half scooter/half caster board out to make sure her younger brother could handle it. Verdict: Oh, yes).
My recommendations for some really great gifts this season?
