At 1 and 4, I feel like this is the year that will set a precedent for the kids. I have a tendency to go overboard and this will be a good way to limit myself too.

Dh and I exchange depending on our budget, or we will pick something together.
We do this too. I only wrap 4 gifts but there are often more in one one box...for instance...the something to wear is usually an outfit. The something to read is usually a few books. The want is usually just one main toy they want. And the need is usually socks/undies/toothbrush.

And they get new Christmas pjs on Christmas Eve.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
