How do you do it in your house?

So how do you do it in your house? Christmas I mean. Do you buy or a set amount for each child. Or just one really good gift?

With economic times, I don't think we will be doing heavy duty expensive gifts this year. I think I will follow the 3 wise men's rule, and each child will receive 3 small gifts.

Really my kids don't NEED anything at all. They have a house over their heads, clothes on their backs, and food in their tummies. Most I can say for some kids these days.

I do think at times the meaning of Christmas is lost on little ones. This year I will do my best to remind them it's Jesus's birthday, and not a day of presents alone.

My kids are not getting any toys this year. They don't need anythinhg like that. So they will be getting clothes, shoes, and homemade presents from Mommy.

What we like to do is give each child 1 gift and then have each child pick one person off the Salvation Army giving tree to help an elderly person or a child.
