Tip 9: Focus on the Meaning of the Holidays
Young couples with small children have a unique opportunity to establish simpler gift-giving traditions than the excess consumption that older kids have been conditioned to expect. Don't start out teaching your young children that a holiday is all about fancy things. Instead, focus on the actual meaning of the holiday. Institute this early, and your holiday seasons will always be about love and giving.
