This year I need to focus on my family's needs.

I need to not worry about how NOT giving a gift looks.

I printed nice photo cards but I cannot give gifts to

adult family members
daycare provider
teachers etc

Im ashamed

No reason to be ashamed, I promise no one is going to judge you. If you really feel bad about it...trying baking something or making something. Let Pinterest light the way!

You know we live in a consumer culture.

No need to feel ashamed. We don't generally buy for adults either. I do a small gift for my son's teacher but I can afford to do all the teachers (gym, music, art, library, etc.).

I have 10 siblings, my husband has 4. That means a lot of nieces and nephews. I buy for the kids, and so do all of our siblings. It's nothing to be ashamed of.
