Big Idea: Christmas ~ No Shopping

So ... just what exactly was my big idea about a Family Christmas with gifts, but no shopping or charge cards 

For a long time each of us has felt that we already had enough stuff.  Also, there are lovely things in our drawers we don't use anymore.  I personally know my sister has things I love and she doesn't use ... and she says the same about me.  

So ... this year is Treasure Chest year.


We are eagerly going through our personal treasures with a particular family member in mind.  Each one has unique likes ... no worry about someone selecting the same thing.

I can't think of anything more special than receiving a personal item from a family member.

And ... to top it off, we are collecting family photographs, new and old, to give to each other. 


We all agree ... this is going to be a very special Priceless Christmas!

  1. What a wonderful idea. Everything that is given will have a special meaning for the giver and the receiver. I love it.

    Merry Christmas to you and your lovely family and animals.

    1. Hi Arlene,
      I'll admit ... I'm more exited about this than anything from a store.
      Merry Christmas!

  3. Personal, thoughtful, and cost-saving. Thanks for the inspiration (thinking of my adult nieces and girlfriends).

    Merry Christmas, Marvel!

      If you have a "sharing gifts" Christmas, I'll say ... it is great fun.
      Have a wonderful Christmas!
