    I'm intrigued by the fact Bluey is popular with Emma. I'm from Australia and it's crazy how much its taken off on an international scale! It's a perfect mix of light-hearted and educational/mature life lessons and I think because it doesn't 'dumb down' to the point its for little kids, its actually enjoyable for all viewers. It also seems pretty authentic to Australian culture in my opinion.
    ( I'll admit that even I get a genuine laugh watching it even though I'm a young adult with no children)

    I love this gift idea guide!! My husband and I are terrible with buying gifts but the Want Need Wear Read idea will be perfect to keep us on track when our baby girl is here!

      Less is always more. Kids are happier with less and don’t feel overwhelmed. We learned the hard way and have gotten rid of $1000s of toys! My son was happier when all he had was a take and play train set. But we got him the big train table with all the wooden tracks. He didn’t play with it. And the same for so much other stuff! He’s 11 now. Our 9 yr old daughter had the big doll house for barbies and traded it for a smaller one about 12/14” high that folds up really small! They have had a big time today taking some of their toys and other things and wrapping them up for their “babies” who are their stuffed animals. They don’t play with dolls. They put all the gifts under the tree. That kept them busy for hours. When we got our new H&A system this past spring they loved the big boxes. The installers actually attached 2 boxes for them and cut doors for them. They love stuff like that. Kids are easy if we don’t make it complicated and buy them everything we thought we wanted as a kid and didn’t get. Lol!

    I love your choices! I added share into the want, need, wear, read so we get something that all the family or at least all the children can use together like a game or outside play equipment.

    Those gifts are sooo cute! You found great bargains. Love the dinosaurs for the boys( always my 3 boys' favorite!) And that baby crib and stroller set for Emma is beyond precious! It looks so sturdy, too! So very sweet that Emma picked Faye's gift from Santa!🎅 She is such a sweet big sister. Hugs to you, Rachelle!❤️🎄❤️

    I love that you guys don't go overboard like some vloggers. Kids don't know the value of things so if what they need happens to cost $5 then that is just a win win all round!

    We are doing want need wear read too! My kids are the same ages as the twins and Faye and I got them similar things as you did! I love this method because they already have so many toys and with this they are getting one toy plus one from Santa and the rest of it is usually really useful.

  • Mama to Five
    Mama to Five 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +55

    Yes to intentional gifts! It can quickly get overwhelming for them 😊 Love that craft items are a “need”. I can get behind that! Plus, consumable gifts are some of the best when you want to stay minimal!🎄

  • Notasha Giep
    Notasha Giep 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

    want, need, wear, read 👏🏼👏🏼 I’ve been doing this idea for a couple years, not only can the child focus more on fewer gifts, but it makes buying for each individual child a lot more intentional

  • Lindsay Marie

    I keep seeing this wicker baby doll stuff. I don't know, my kids would have that all broken before the day was over. It's cute though!

  • Nikki Algien
    Nikki Algien หลายเดือนก่อน

    I always go overboard on my nephew lol. I should have done that, but when you have 4 adults in one house buying for a 4 year old, that would be 4 wants, 4 wear, 4 Need and 4 read. I always get him clothes, jammies, toys and books. Just from me, then there is his grandma, and parents that buy for him also.

  • Jennifer Vieira
    Jennifer Vieira 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +2

    Growing up every Christmas we got maybe one big present or toy and then we would wait till the day after Christmas to go shopping for clothes because we could get more clothes for our money because they always have sales to get rid of Christmas merchandise. Our mother had us four children, so I had an older brother and then my older sister and then my twin sister and I were born 10 years after our older sister. She took care of all four of us by herself. Her first husband was killed in a car accident and he was the father of my older brother and sister. My twin sister and I father left us when we were very young. So we had to be careful with everything and save for new jackets for all four of us. Jackets were bought a year ahead after Christmas for the following year. Everything was bought like this. It helped so much.

    My kids are all adults now but I wish this was around when they were little. Next year I might implement a version of this for Christmas for all the adults (I’ve already finished my shopping for this year). Love everything you got for the kids and the reasons why.

    • Joanne Lebrasse
      Joanne Lebrasse 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +5

      I started a version a couple of years ago for my adult kids and grandkids. What I buy has to fit in a stocking but I get
      1 something to wear
      2 something to eat
      3 something to do
      4 a body product
      5 something to have fun with
      Finding it all to fit a stocking is a challenge but can be done. I used to go overboard with my kids but have cut back as there is no need or pressure to give them everything they want. A heart of gratitude is more important

    I love the want, need, wear, read idea. I’ve been thinking about trying it also. Maybe we can next year since I’ve already finished my shopping. Didn’t quite stick to the 4 gifts but still stayed in a great budget limit because Facebook marketplace had a ton of great deals on some wishlist items! ❤

  • Lauren Denney

    I LOVED this vlog!!! I feel like you’re a youtuber that is realistic and doesn’t spend $100’s of dollars for Christmas😂 you also shop like I do in the way that if it’s on sale there is no question. I’m buying it😂 I love to spoil my nieces and nephews but on a budget of couse

    Is the “crib” not a pet bed? That’s probably why it’s larger than doll beds, but it’s a genius swap if it is indeed a pet bed!

    This was so nice to do education things books, arts crafts. Rachelle you have Always be so good creativity with Emma and now the twins. Those crib, stroller are way cute. I picture her being so excited. You can get a pillow on Amazon and a blanket for the doll. Reusable. I think a American doll for Emma that looks like her would be nice. Those are in. Love all the boys gifts too. Faye got cute stuff. It's perfect what you give very special. Happy Holidays to your family. 🎄❄️⛄️

    It gives plenty to open but not so much that it’s overwhelming.

    Not a fan of read want wear. I get my kids presents and toys once a year. Christmas. I don’t want items myself. I just want the kids to unwrap presents. Not even pull out of a bag. I wrap and asked Santa to wrap. We buy toys and when kids are done if they last we sell if have parts and such. Makes holidays fun. Gets kids off tablets. Etc

      When I was growing up we usually got 3 gifts. We got our one “big gift” whatever it was we had been wanting for a long time. Then Mama usually surprised us with 2 smaller gifts. We didn’t get gifts from extended family except from my Grandpa, Aunt and Uncle. They would get us each a gift together from the 3 of them. There were 4 of us and one year they got us one gift for the 4 of us; an electric toothbrush with 4 toothbrushes. This was back in the 70s when stuff was different. But we thought we were uptown getting an electric toothbrush! We were always happy with what we got for Christmas. Because we didn’t get so much I can remember what I got almost every year from the time I was 6. I still have my doll I got that year and I’m 63 now! She is in a chair in my bedroom. Simple is better

    We did want need wear read and share. And of course a couple of small things and candy for the stockings. This plan has kept me from when I’m walking thru the store just randomly picking up stuff that looks oh so cute or fun that I’m reality they will never play with.
    For my 11 yr old son:
    Want: a little water Fountain he saw in Hobby Lobby for his dresser
    Need: a new basketball and goal so he won’t sneak next door to play when they aren’t home and their cameras won’t be going off. Lol!
    Wear: a boys nightgown and nightcap he’s been asking for for a couple of years
    Read: set of Hardy Boys mysteries.
    My 9 yr old daughter
    Want: some kind of dog you unbox. When she asked for it several months ago I actually got it on sale for $20
    Need: a Pearl necklace. Every girl needs pearls like their mommy wears!
    Wear: a Frozen nightgown she wanted and I kept making excuses to not get her so it could be for Christmas
    Read; Anne of Green Gables set
    And to Share: a Toss Across game.
    Then we each got them a gift from us. Their stockings will have a kaleidoscope and some candy.
    I did much better this year since trying to become a minimalist.
