I remember seeing this post on children's Christmas gifts and thinking it was a fantastic approach to giving, so Aaron and I adopted this motto to shopping for Shepherd this year. Since he is quite young, and doesn't understand the idea of giving, receiving or opening gifts, it's been simple to shop for him. In fact, I found the Noah's Ark set at a thrift store for $4! Here are his gifts from us:
something he wants: noah's ark little people; something he needs: a convertible car seat; something to wear: lumberjack bunting; something to read: a collection of books, including caps for sale and the snowy day.
