40. Holiday traditions and gift ideas

We’re a week into December now and while it isn’t ALWAYS about the gifts and shopping .. hey it’s 2020 and if ever there were a year to find ways to spark joy, this is it. 

We are talking gifts today. An entire gift guide of UNIQUE ideas for the people on your list. We can almost guarantee you haven’t thought of these ideas! We are bringing you some fun ones.

First things first, let’s talk STUFF. Do you feel like the kids get too much stuff? Does the whole thing stress you out? Katie has a 4 gift rule.

Do you wrap or leave unwrapped Santa gifts? It’s a discussion in Natalie’s home. She also has a new tradition that involves buying a gift in memory of her stillborn son, Samuel.
Katie does a unique advent calendar that involves giving back and more about thr reason for the season.

She also does a 12 days of beers (and rootbeers).
