Kristen Bell Is Really Cheap When It Comes To Buying Christmas Presents For Her Kids

These last few weeks I’ve been trying to encourage my husband to STOP buying things on Amazon for our kids. Now, he doesn’t buy expensive gifts or anything, but it’s usually small things like scratch-and-sniff pens, new markers for school, a pack of Tsum Tsums or a soccer ball. I’ve seen it happen so many times that my kids are so used to getting these rather small and inexpensive gifts that their birthdays and holidays seem like no big deal. The surprise and suspense leading up to certain holidays seems to be completely dead just because UPS and Fedex are always leaving packages at our door.Honestly, I partly blame my husband and I partly blame Amazon Prime for making this part of our lives so easy.But for this holiday season I’ve told my husband to STOP cold-turkey on the Amazon Prime shopping. I don’t care it’s a 99 cent eraser or a new pair of soccer socks, I just don’t want my kids getting anything until Christmas morning. Why? Because I want to bring that excitement back to our house and hopefully teach my kids to appreciate what they have rather than always expect and demand the things they apparently ‘need.’ That’s why I was pretty surprised when celebrity mom Kristen Bell make this revelation about her kids and how she’s pretty much a cheapskate when it comes to buying presents. And honestly, I really like her idea.
