I've been conflicted with the idea of telling my 4 y.o. that Santa isn't real. It's been a big struggle for me. My husband and I want our son to understand that "Jesus is the reason for the season". It feels like with today’s society kids expect SO many presents and gifts are becoming obnoxiously expensive. We're not wealthy, but were not poor either. We want to better... More
My son just started daycare last week. He only goes Tuesdays and Thursdays ... so he’s only gone 3 times now. With the holidays coming up, I’m thinking about getting one of the teachers a gift card. First of all, how much do you think is appropriate? Secondly, is it weird to only give one of the teachers a gift card? He’s really taken a liking to one of them so I don’t know the other ones ver...

How do you handle that? If Santa only delivers the gifts on Christmas Eve, then do you leave the tree bare until then? I have friends and family buying gifts and wondering if I should let them put the gifts under the tree now. And if so, how do we explain that to kids?
I'm considering surprising my partner with a cruise for Christmas since he's never been on one and we desperately need a quick vacation. However, my LO will only be 7 months by cruise date and I am terrified of being away from him. Is there any way to feel comfortable about being away? Or should I consider a different gift?
Getting some canvases done for Xmas gifts and I usually get from Shutterfly or Mpix but Walmart is so much cheaper, has anyone ever gotten one from them? If so how is the picture quality? Is it worth it or do I go with one of the better websites? Thanks!
We are celebrating our first Christmas in the US, so please help me with choosing Christmas gifts for our new friends here. Most of them are families with toddler kids. Do I need to give presents to each family member separately or just gifts for kids? What is usually given - store gift cards, toys, or what? What value should they be? Thanks!
I recently learned that any gift wrap that is shiny or has decorative foil on it isn’t recyclable! So I’m looking for some creative materials I can use to wrap gifts and reduce waste this year. Newspaper is always a classic, but can be a little dirty. Any ideas? 💡
My husband always works on the holidays as does his sister and her husband. His family lives about an hour and a half away from us. We always try to see his side of the family for Christmas. My in-laws won’t plan something if his sister can’t be there, but his sister has the attitude of "if I work, I work, if I don’t I don’t." Do other people have this issue? To make matters w... More
What’s the standard for gifting the woman who watches my son one day a week? She operates a daycare. There is also another woman who co-runs it. I was thinking $25 to each plus a gift card for another $25 each... I’m new at this so any insight is appreciated.
