    Since we married 11 years ago, my husband and I have focused on ridding ourselves of excess "stuff" so training our loved ones again buying us replacement staff has been an ongoing and challenging goal. We kicked it off by sending mostly food gifts, as well as gift cards so that our family members weren't also collecting useless stuff they neither wanted nor used. My mother-in-law gifts me with frust subscriptions, which are wonderful. The one downside of them is that they often come wrapped in foam packing materials. Ultimately, my goal is to end gifting altogether in favor of more time together and phone calls.

    I have 6 siblings. For years, we get a name from the Christmas wheel and donate to that person's favorite charity.

    There are 6 of us in our family. My 23 year old son gave us each a journal with a handwritten note inside asking us to participate by journaling throughout 2018. Each of us approach journaling in different ways. For my husband, who has never journaled, this gift was especially powerful. Truly this one will be one that keeps on giving all year long.

    Why couldn't a living tree work just as well? Between Christmases it can be used as a house plant till it's too big to be inside, then it can be planted. My mother had a Norfolk Island pine that she received years ago when it was just a 1-footer. Year after year when it started getting tall enough, we used it as a Christmas tree till she died. Shortly after her death, it too died. By that time it was about 6 feet tall. I think it hated to be taken away from the house she had lived in, so it quit. Sadness, I'd say.
