Looking back on my childhood, I can only remember a handful of my Christmas presents: my late sheltie-collie, Goldie; a pink, life-size hair salon; and my look-alike American Girl doll.
Years from now (even one year from now), your children probably won’t be able to tell you what toys they received, but I guarantee that they will forever cherish sleeping in the same bed with their big sisters every Christmas Eve (our childhood family tradition) or whatever traditions you establish together. So, take a deep breath, retain some perspective, and make your kids smile with these imaginative gift ideas!
