I saw this “gifting philosophy” a few years ago and loved the concept. I really do not want my kids to feel overwhelmed with “stuff” on Christmas and they really won’t know what to even play with if they get a ton of gifts. For all of these reasons, we have decided to go with the 4 gift philosophy. Each year it may change but this year, these are the ones we went with. Other options could be:
One Thing they share
Something to do (could be tickets to a game, a trip for the whole family, etc)
Something to make
ONE THING THEY WANT
5-year old: KidKraft Disney Princess Cinderella Royal Dreams Dollhouse | We ended up going with this one over the Barbie Dreamhouse and nearly saved $80!
1-year old: WOW Robin’s Medical Rescue – Emergency | We actually have the farm truck by the same brand and Miles LOVES it so I got him this one!
ONE THING THEY NEED
5 & 3-year old: Pottery Barn Kids Winter Reindeer Bedding Look | For the girls beds!
1-year old: Barneys New York LITTLE GIRAFFE Chenille Security Blanket | The feeling of this security blanket is amazing!
ONE THING TO READ
5-year old: Magic Tree House Boxed Set, Books 1-4 by Mary Pope Osborne | with this My Bookmark Penguin | I have heard WONDERFUL things about this book set for her age group!
3-year old: How to Catch an Elf by Adam Wallace | I have had this book on our list for awhile so pulled the trigger!
1-year old: Richard Scarry’s Best Word Book Ever
ONE THING TO WEAR
5-year old: J.Crew Girls’ glitter-jewel bracelet | For the little girl who loves to sparkle 🙂
3-year old: Pottery Barn Kids Rainbow Flannel Nightgown | Our 3 year old refuses to wear any of the hand me down pajamas from her sister and insists on night gowns only!
1-year old: Robeez Galway Cozy Bootie Boot | Miles is in need of a pair of shoes for winter to keep his toes warm!
OUR BIG COMBINED PRESENT
