Christmas time is one that children look forward to throughout the year. However, for parents, it is often a time of anxiety and nerves as they figure out what to get their kids and everyone else in the family. For those who have kids, it may seem impossible to get them everything on their list. After all, no one wants to go bankrupt due to buying their kids everything that they wanted for Christmas. With this being said, here are a few tips to help with which gifts to purchase for your children.
- Have kids compile a list of everything that they want, but be sure to explain to them that they may not get everything on their list. If they seem put out on this, explain that Santa has a lot to do and several kids to bring gifts to. If this does not satisfy them, then explain that you have to pay Santa and you are not made of money, it is important that kids realize the value of a dollar and this is one way to do that.
- Consider using the old method of buying them one thing that they want, one item that they can read, one item that they can wear and one item that will bring about hours of play. For example, maybe they want a gaming system, this can be the item they want, then a game can be the hours of play items.
- Take a good look at what they are asking for, are some items, those that are being advertised constantly? If so, they may not be the best option. Too many times, kids see these commercials and advertisements, thinking that these items are awesome, but in the end they are disappointed.
- Consider putting a budget on what you are going to spend on each kid. It can be easy to go into thousands of dollars when buying for multiple kids, and this is something that you are going to want to avoid, unless you can afford doing this.
- For older kids, consider gift cards. If they have asked for clothes, giving them gift cards to their favorite stores can allow them to choose what they want and be happier with the end results.
Christmas is all about the kids in families with children. However, you can make this a fun and memorable Christmas without having to get them everything that is on their lists!
