For Eric and I this has actually been a fun challenge. Our four gifts are more thoughtful and creative than they might be had we just mindlessly gathered presents. We are also doing one larger gift for each girl. For instance we purchased a small sized drum set for Cordelia---no, not because we are crazy, but because she really shows an interest and an aptitude. They were affordable and we also wanted to test the limits of our own patience. Just kidding. I am strangely fine with drums playing...in another room. We are also finalizing plans on a larger gift for Elise as well.
We are also doing the same for each other. Four gifts that fall into the aforementioned category! Really I have found these limitations to be fun and exciting as we ponder the best choice to fill our quota.
I am also making a lot of gifts this year. No, I am not giving art, but I am making sweets and other small give-able gifts. Trying, as always, to focus in our the spirit of the season and not give in to panic buying!
What are you up to for your giving?
