Pictures Are Worth More Than Presents

With 3 children, son-in-laws, several grandchildren and a hoard of steps there were too many family members to purchase a nice present for all. It came down to gift cards for everyone. We realized the presents the adults liked most were family pictures. So this year, we have banned any gift exchange with only family portrait trades allowed.

Children below 15 years old will get one present. We can now focus on family, sharing a meal and getting back to the real meaning of Christmas. This should save us a minimum of $1000, not to mention feeling like a weight has been lifted from our shoulders with no shopping or returns. Merry Christmas.

Exchange photos any time of year, but at Christmas put some effort into making homemade treats that the whole family can enjoy.
