Try This: Teach Kids the Value of Giving at Christmas

Make it easy for children to “buy” free or low-cost gifts for family and friends.

Provide a venue where kids can “shop” for inexpensive or free Christmas gifts to give to their parents or siblings. Work with other groups or businesses to gather donations of gift items. Invite the community to attend, and help children choose gifts while their parents enjoy refreshments in another room.
