If you’ve been following along, you know that a few years back, we changed the way we approached gift giving with our children. I wanted my children to grow up being grateful for what they had, and not be those kind of people who receive, receive and still want for more. By making the gift giving intentional and reducing the number of gifts they receive, I was hopeful that they would be grateful for the ones they got.
(If you’re new here, you can read last week’s introduction to this concept. )
This week, we’re talking about the NEED category. Or as my kids have referred to it in the past, the underwear category. Because if that’s what you need, that’s what you get. lol. As we approach fall, I try to hold off on fulfilling any needs, so that I can use them as holiday gifts.
Here’s a few ideas that are on our NEED lists:
new snowboots, because my old ones have no life left in them and my feets get chilly at the dog park!
would it be weird to ask for a bra? Because I was just sized at Nordstrom’s and found out I was way off (ugh. no wonder they were so uncomfortable! My ribcage shrunk? WTF.) and had to buy some new ones (cha-ching). But I could afford a few more.
I loved this line from Natori

snow boots for the older one (and bonus that they are more like a shoe, so he can comfortably hike in them at winter camp)
