The 5 Gift Rule For Christmas

The 5 Gift Rule For Christmas


The 5 Gift Rule has gained popularity as a strategy to simplify holiday shopping and focus on meaningful presents. By adhering to this rule, you can streamline your gift-giving process and make each present count.

My Personal View:

I recently came across the 5 gift rule and thought it would be a really neat idea!! Implementing this is going to be interesting and a bit challenging considering I want to give our only child everything. In reality, I know giving a child everything is actually not sustainable and beneficial to them in the years to come. The rule that I absolutely love out of the them all is number 5 – giving the gift of experience. Of course if you have small children as I have you will not want to leave out a toy or two, but I am trying to gear more towards the day Santa might not be able to fit (down the chimney) and becomes a very favorable distant childhood memory.

The 5 Gift Rule For Christmas1.” Something they want”

“Something they want” allows you to choose a gift based on the own your child’s individual interests and desires. It could be a gadget they’ve been eyeing, a hobby-related item, or a coveted accessory.

2. “Something they need”

“Something they need” shifts the focus to practicality. Socks, shoes, a new Church dress or suit , anything that you know they will need and use throughout the year.

3.“Something to read”  

“Something to read” introduces the gift of knowledge and imagination. A book to explore the world or learn a different language  or just a good Ole Christmas book with Santa and his reindeer.

4 – “Something to wear”   

“Something to wear” opens up possibilities for stylish and wearable gifts. It can be clothing, accessories, or even cozy pajamas.

5  “Something to experience”   

“Something to experience” focuses on creating memories and shared moments. It’s about gifting experiences that create lasting memories and strengthen your bond.

The 5 Gift Rule offers a practical and thoughtful approach to Christmas gift-giving. By selecting something they want, need, wear, read, and experience, you ensure that each gift holds significance and brings joy. Embrace this rule as a guide to find unique Christmas presents that reflect the your child’s interests and create memorable experiences. With the 5 Gift Rule, you can make this holiday season truly special.
