My 3 year old son has more than once said he loves Grandma, Mommy, & Daddy because we buy him things! I don’t think he is spoiled. I don’t think we BUY him too much. I was mildly disgusted until I thought about it for a while. Giving gifts has been around since the beginning of mankind. People give gifts to show appreciation, generosity, and caring. That is love isn’t it? The more I think of it the more I think his little innocent mind got it right.
It is all us adults who try to minimize the importance of gifting around the holidays. So gift away! And remember you don’t always have to buy something to give a gift. Gifts can be many different things including your time, handmade items, and used things. Gifts don’t always need to be store bought.
