Christmas Gifts

Matt and I are both gift givers. We love to buy gifts for our loved ones on special days and we LOVE to get gifts for each other. We also know that because of that, we have to train ourselves to do that but to do it in a way that isn't over the top.

What we decided to do was give Christmas gifts in this way...

Want, Need, Wear, Read 
        Many of you may have seen this going around Pinterest over the last while and we have adopted this over the last two years and we have also personalized it further too.

Our family Christmas gift motto is:

Want, Need, Wear, Read and Something to do together. 

This is super fun because we still get to give gifts but we also cap it so it doesn't get out of hand. Another way that we prevent it from getting out of hand is that we do larger gifts/celebrations for birthdays.

It is a bit early to be doing this since we don't have children yet but we want to be in the habit of it for when it is time for that :)
