Re: Question for the Non-Santa Crew
We do Santa in our house, but I will say that NONE of the gifts under the tree say who they are from. Anything from Santa is not wrapped and is put together...everything from Mom/Dad, Siblings, Grandparents, or any other Relatives is just wrapped in the child's specific paper(we coordinate by paper since the oldest is just starting to read, rather than use tags). After Christmas, we call relatives and the kids tell them thank you for the present(s)....they never know which gift came from whom.
For us it is more about the kids enjoying what they got, than them comparing well this person got me "all of this" and this person "only got me this". We want them to appreciate whatever they get and not compare, to the best of our ability....we also are beginning to limit gifts this year because they just have too much stuff.
