8. Handmade Gifts
Yes, it’s nice to give people something from their wish list for the holidays. But even better is giving them a thoughtful, unique, and handmade gift. A handwritten card or personalized gift means so much more than a gift card. It will show they you care if you took time out of your busy life to create something just for them.

9. Read Holiday Books
Think about your favorite holiday books growing up and make a reading list for your kids. Then pick your absolute fave and start there. Read the book together and talk about why you love it. It will be special to share a piece of your childhood with your kids.
