Christmas may be a few weeks away but Christmas planning - and shopping! - is already well and truly here. This year I stumbled on the "something you want" "something you need" "something to wear" and "something to read" philosphy. Perfect!
I am someone who always says I don't want Christmas to be just about pressies but then ends up not being able to resist buying "just one more thing". I love choosing and buying, or making, gifts.
This got me thinking: how did our society's relationship with money get
so complicated? Why is it so difficult to buy children gifts based
solely on what they WANT, even if the costs vary so much? When did
monetary value become synomous with love or appreciation? Do we
subconsciously put a price on everything?
I bet this goes on in many homes, year in - year out, in the name of "fairness". No wonder Christmas pressie buying becomes a headache and escalates into crazy money. Been there. Done that. Definitely not going there again.
