Keep reading and join us, will you? We’d love to have you.
Here’s how it all started for us….One day a few years back, some friends are I were talking about the overwhelming-ness of holiday gifts. My friend Shel mentioned that every year, she and her husband subscribe to a purchasing philosophy that makes it so much easier. I knew just then that something had to change. We had already changed how much we spent on the kids (We’re not big spenders. We don’t buy into going into debt for the holidays. and we’d rather save for family experiences that build memories instead of material “stuff”). Because its so fabulous, I’d love to share it with you!
-something you want
-something you need
-something to wear
-something to read
Here’s how it works..
Everyone gets 1, maybe 2 things (depending on price) in each category. That way, no one ends up with things they don’t need or want or anything excessive. And, if they really need clothes or shoes or whatnot, it makes for a great excuse to give them that as one of their gifts. One of my favorite things about the 4 Gifts is that our kids are learning that christmas doesn’t have to be about receiving a ton of gifts. They’re learning to be grateful for what they have and what they’re given, which is a gift in and of itself.
Here’s where the blog series comes in..
