Family Ties: Focus More on Presence and Less on Presents

As wee ones sit around and write up their letters to Santa, mommy might want to take a moment and think about what experiences she can give her child instead of toys. While a few presents will certainly make for a nice Grinchless morning, it is rarely the bevvy of presents that withstands the test of time. Memories, on the other hand, will last a lifetime. Instead of spending countless hours searching for the Zhu Zhu Pet, take that time and create moments that youngsters will cherish forever. Whether it's decorating a tree, hanging lights, making cookies, singing together, spinning dreidels or volunteering, kiddos will appreciate the family time and the traditions that will be born from it.

What traditions do you plan on sharing this holiday season?
