We generally celebrate Christmas with immediate family but on the rare occasion when we’re able to round up the clan from all over the country, the gift giving could easily get out of hand. Don’t get me wrong: I really enjoy the process of choosing, buying and wrapping presents, but when you add an extra 20 extended family members into the mix your budget has to be spread very thin.
Instead, try organising a Secret Santa so that everyone gets one decent present rather than yet another box of chocolates or keyring. The trick is to set a price limit so that everyone has the same expectations.
Tell me, does your family have some kind of system for gift giving at Christmas?
