Every year I say I am not going to spend a lot on Christmas gifts cuz the kids usually enjoy the less expensive toys or boxes the gifts come in more than the more expensive gifts.
I don't want to waste money on gifts that the kids won't enjoy or remember but I feel guilty not getting my kids the "hot" toys of the season.
Any suggestions to make Christmas more memorable instead of commercialized? I would rather spend the money on something that the kids will cherish instead of another Tickle Me Elmo....

Sponsor a needy family in your community. We do this thru our church, but lots of groups do it. Don't take on the task alone, join forces with your neighbors or coworkers, but get the kids involved...help them to plan. Follow the advent tradition of reflection and giving for the entire holiday season. I've never forgotten this from my childhood.
