Why Sandra Bullock Gets Her Kids 3 Christmas Gifts

Sandra Bullock Is Only Getting Her Kids 3 Christmas Gifts For 1 Important Reason

NEW YORK, NY - DECEMBER 17:  Sandra Bullock attends the

Although Sandra Bullock, the 54-year-old actress and mom of two, has a history of going big on Christmas, this year she's scaling back when it comes to getting gifts for her kids Laila, 6, and Louis, 8.

The Bird Box star explained that in the past the holidays have been "really, really overdone," she said in an interview with Today, "because I overdo it, and then I panic that I didn't do enough. Then I get more — and then everyone else has overdone it."

However, in an effort to teach her children the importance of giving, her kids agreed to stick with a max of three small gifts this year. "But this year we just stopped. We just stopped," she said. "Because there's so much happening in the world where people don't have anything. And we said, 'Why don't we just make this about other people?' And they were amazing about it. So, Christmas is three small gifts."
