Want, Need, Wear, Read: Son

When it comes to holiday gifts, we often think more is better. But I like keeping it simple so that each gift is thoughtful and memorable. That’s why I like the tradition of giving four gifts: a want, a need, something to wear, and something to read. I’ll be sharing ideas for the whole family this week following this rule. Today, let’s shop for the little guy in our lives.
