Over the last 14 years of being parents we have used different strategies of buying Christmas presents. As you can imagine, having 5 children makes Christmas a busy and expensive time of year. We usually follow the rule “something they want, something they need, something to wear, something to read”. This year even that seemed like we were buying our children too much.
