Spend less on Christmas gifts when your children are young

Baby’s first Christmas always seems to mean an immense amount of pressure for parents to buy lots of gifts, schedule elaborate holiday photos shoots and drive themselves crazy. This is A.J.’s first Christmas and I’m purposefully scaling back a bit.
He doesn’t know that it’s Christmas or about the gift-giving tradition. So I’m going to enjoy this time before he can ASK for what he wants to just buy him one gift. Instead, we’ll focus on spending time with family and enjoy watching him play with his cousins for the first time.
A.J. makes his first appearance on this Morning Josephine video.

All our additional tips aimed on love between man and woman to make a family

  1. Me too! Grandma and Grandpa went all out crazy buying toys for AB so we don’t have to buy a thing for her. I don’t think she’ll know the difference. I am however springing for holiday cards with our picture and of course, the all-important Santa photos. Oh, and a couple of “baby’s first Christmas” outfits. And the baby’s first Christmas tree ornament. And a beautiful stocking for her. And her Santa suit. Um, ok, so maybe I am going a little crazy.

  2. Alix, you’re excited for AB’s first Christmas which is expected. Think about 10 years from now when she’ll be demanding the latest Ipad and it’ll cost God knows how much! Enjoy the holidays!
