Christmas Presents – Keep Your Present Purchases Under WrapsHow many presents should you buy your kids?

I don’t know about you, but I tend to go over the top every-single-year.

And always spend way more than I plan to… I keep seeing nice things I think the boys might like, and just keep buying and buying and buying.

Now I’m not telling you to buy from every category…..NOOOOO. But, it’s a great guideline if you’re like me and find it difficult to keep the present purchases under wraps.

How Many Christmas Presents Should You Buy for the Kids?

Something they want:

  • The item they want most of all. This item is usually at the top of their Santa’s list and as they get older you may require a re-mortgage if you want to get it. But hey; it’s Christmas.
