Tackling Christmas Extravagance

How do you firmly and sensitively impose limits on others in regards to Christmas gifts.

Todays episode is in response to a listen question: “My children are 3 and 5 and the only grandchildren for my and my husband’s parents. The number of gifts we receive at Christmas is overwhelming and quite stressful. I’ve had a frank conversation with my parents about sticking to a limited number of presents. This has worked pretty well.

My mother-in-law is a bit harder. I don’t feel the freedom to be as frank with her. She loves giving gifts, and has taken offense in the past to the suggestion of experience gifts.

Please help! For many reasons I don’t want to continue having an outlandish Christmas celebration at her house that results in a packed car and a very stressed out mama.”

In this episode I share my response to this email with my top tips and tricks to enjoying a less stressful/ less extravagant Christmas.
