Somehow with having children, it seems that everything seems to accumulate — toys, books, and clothing. And, the holidays often bring stacks of presents all given with love but also hard for our kids to keep focus and interest.
So, this holiday season we have decided for a more minimalistic approach to gift giving. We are following the strategy “Want, Need, Wear, Read.” The idea being that each child receives one item that they want, something they need, something to wear, and of course, something to read. We aren’t exactly sure who to give credit to for the following strategy but we have taken it on full heartedly.
Based on these four categories we’ve created a really concise list of The Singing Ant top picks in each category (With our 2 favorites this season because we love options!)
And, after searching for our holiday favorites, we also found that this approach really helped us narrow down and make gift choices that we hope everyone will love. Hope you do too!
