Why This Mom Has A Three Gift Rule For Christmas

Could you do this?

If you’ve never heard of the three gift rule before, this may be something that might work for you and your family.

The holiday season is officially upon us, which means the next few weeks are chock full of decorating and parties and excitement and of course, shopping. Regardless of what holiday you celebrate, almost all of them involve gift giving of some kind.

I am a die hard Christmas lover,I love everything about the Christmas season and do my best to enjoy at least a full month of the holidays, because once Christmas morning is over, it all seems to pass by so quickly. I will admit a big party of the joy I find in Christmas is the gift giving aspect of it. We were your basic middle class family growing up, buy my mom always managed to fill our tree with presents for myself and my siblings and I’m the same with my kids.

There’s nothing I love more than shopping for my kids and picking out the exact gift I know they’re going to be thrilled to open under the tree and I have been accused of going overboard. While I love Christmas and I love shopping, I’ve often wondered if I should scale back the gifts now that my kids are older and focus more on doing rather than receiving?

One mom describes why she has the three gift rule in her house and how it’s taken a lot of stress out of the holidays and made it more enjoyable.
