A Guide For Buying Gifts For Kids This Christmas!!

Keeping up with my organised Christmas posts, I shared a tip a week or two ago for when you're buying for your kids this Christmas and as promised here's another post to explore it a little more!

A festive flatlay with the text, A Guide For Buying Gifts For Kids This Christmas as the rhyme, something they want, something they need, something to wear, something to read

I'll admit that for the first Christmas with our son I may have gone a little over the top with the gift buying. I hadn't spent a huge amount but there was a lot of things. Living on a reduced income because of maternity pay, I'd gradually been buying things since his birth in the spring to help spread the cost.

When the time came to put them into the Santa sack, I kept finding more and more things. Then Christmas day rolled around and he was overwhelmed. He is also incredibly lucky to have lots of friends and family that buy for him and I realised we could edge towards him being very spoiled. 

As a family who do a lot of things on or with a budget, I wanted to set us a bit of a guideline. Some years we maybe able to go crazy buy the next might be on a budget and I was very aware that this might lead to disappointment for our son. So I thought if there was some sort of guide it would help us stay on track. 

I did some research and found this little rhyme. I tried it for every Christmas since that first one and it has worked! I've also convinced the grandparent's to stick to it!

This little tip can work for so many people in all different circumstances. On a budget......this will work. Don't want them to be to spoiled..........this will work. Need to reign in the aunts, uncles and grandparents......this will work. Maybe you just don't know what to buy the little darlings.........this will work!!!

Just remember..............something they want, something they need, something to wear, something to read.

It makes gift buying so much easier and everyone I tell about it gives it a try too. 

Are you going to try this technique this Christmas? Let me know in the comments.
