Have you seen this new trend that has taken over Facebook? Could it be that the days of crazy spending at Christmas is coming to an end?

A trend that has slowly gained popularity over the past few years is the "Four Gift Rule". Parents commit to giving their kids just four presents. The gifts are Something they want, something they need, something to wear and something to read. Some people claim this is simply parents being stingy, but other parents claim this is a sensible idea that needs to become a tradition.

Some parents are concerned that their kids wouldn’t be okay with not receiving more than just four gifts.

As the broke aunt in the family, I love the idea of a 4 gift rule. I could show up with a little extra gift and be a hero! Parents, have you tried the "Four Gift Rule" yet? If so how has it gone in your home? Let us know in the comments below!
