It’s too much! No one needs a 6 foot, 200 pound bear for Christmas. Trust me, no little kid is going to find that cute.  I’ve seen lots of great ideas to simplify your giving. I really like the four gift rule: something they want, something they need, something they wear and something they read.  I also like the giving back as a family idea by not eating out and instead using those dollars to donate to a charity of the family’s choosing.  Putting your gift giving on a diet does not have to feel like punishment and won’t scar your children.  If you are going to take the time to buy someone a gift, take the time to make sure it’s from the heart.  Instead of the oh, thank you another gift card reaction, you might just get a great big hug, a huge laugh or even happy tears.  Whichever route you go, you only have 12 shopping days left, so get going.
