Gift-Giving in the Family

The one sure thing which paints ear-to-ear smiles on children’s faces is receiving Christmas presents. Nothing’s more exciting than finding gifts under the tree on Christmas day. A surge of adrenaline shoots through children’s bodies as they eagerly tear open those colorful Christmas wrappers and unravel their hearts’ most ardent desires.

Although the essence of Christmas of course, is the birth of Christ, it doesn’t hurt to foster this culture of gift-giving among all members of the family. It encourages everyone to live out the spirit of giving and sharing in this most joyous of seasons.

If you haven’t already done so, why not arrange a kris kringle within your family? The younger ones don’t necessarily have to spend a fortune on presents such as heated clothing for mom and dad, as they can put their artistic skill to good use and craft something up to give them instead. Anything made with love will be greatly appreciated.

    We usually give our children a little money each year before Christmas to buy gifts for each other. They enjoy giving as much as they do receiving.
