Four Christmas Gifts

The saying goes:

Give them something they want, something they need, something to wear, and something to read.

It's minimalism at its finest. At my particular household, here's why it didn't work for us:

  • The kids thought the wearable item was replacing a toy.
  • Most of my children can't read, and one doesn't even like being read to. Also, they kids thought the books were replacing toys.
  • If they truly need something, why make them wait until Christmas?

For what I do instead, see that information in a future post!

That being said, I can see how the "want-need-wear-read" system could work really well for some households.

Here are my "want-need-wear-read" suggestions for each category, by age.

Baby to 2 Years Old

2 to 5 Years Old

5 to 12 Years Old

12 to 18 Years Old
