After a total gift overload last Christmas, Rob and I implemented this for E and A's birthdays this year and it went really well. Def doing it this Christmas (not counting their stockings...and new Christmas books).
So now I stay away from the "traditional" stocking stuffers--the cutesy little trinkets and toys and games. Those little trinkets are just stuff, and we don't need any more stuff around here. Instead, try a minimalist approach to stocking stuffers.
