As the parent of one or more young children, you may be anticipating a New Year’s Eve that is less sequins and champagne and more mini hot dogs and watching cartoons. Fortunately, celebrating this traditionally decadent night in a family-friendly way can be just as much fun for grown-ups as it is for kids.
A few weeks ago, we received an important press release from Santa’s Workshop regarding ‘Santa’s Top Holiday Gifts.’ We quickly flew to the North Pole and collaborated with him and his elves to bring you this year’s list of the hottest toys and the latest gadgets for every member of your family. May your shopping days ahead be merry and bright!
Coming up with a gift idea for our parents or in-laws can be frustrating. Most of our parents are at the age when they are downsizing and are not looking to add to their collections, closets or cabinets. They have come to the point in their lives where if they want something, they buy it for themselves. Unfortunately, that makes gift-giving more challenging. Create something that will touch their hearts. For larger or more time-consuming gifts, consider pooling your resources with your siblings and make it a group gift.
