Finding the PERFECT gift for your child at Christmas time can be a challenge, there are so many fabulous gift ideas out there and kids seem to want everything! After every advert or every time you walk past a toy in a shop there is something else the kids seem to want. But we all know that a week after Christmas the house is full of toys no longer being played with! Quality over quantity is definitely the answer.

What is the 4 gift rule?

The idea of the four gift rule is that parents buy just four presents for their child:

  1. Something they want
  2. Something they need
  3. Something to wear
  4. Something to read

This present buying rule is great if you are on a budget or if you would prefer to spend your money on less, better quality items. It is much easier to think of fabulous, original gift ideas if you know you are only buying 4!

If you are thinking of trying out the 4 gift rule and buying less gifts this Christmas you definitely want the gifts that you do purchase to be good quality much loved items. Click here to find out what is involved in creating fun products that last not just for Christmas but all year round! 

Whether you want to stick to buying four gifts for Christmas or just use it as a starting place, it is definitely worth getting your child to think about the 4 gift rule as they write their Christmas lists to Santa.

Printable Christmas List -  4 gifts for Christmas

We hope that if you are ready to take on the 4 gifts for Christmas challenge you find this printable Christmas list for kids helpful. Use it yourself or get the kids to send it to Santa! 

I love the idea of getting kids to think about something they want, something they need, something to wear, something to read rather than writing a long list of toys they want, and probably will only play with for 5 minutes. Buying quality gifts over piles and piles of presents has to be the answer!
