So, this is a good time to start thinking about buying Christmas gifts for your nearest and dearest. As the purveyor of stories about personal finance, you might think that I had no time for giving away my wealth in the form of expensive Christmas presents. You’d be half right. I set a great deal on getting the right gifts and I have a reasonably large set of siblings to buy for. I don’t spend a lot of money though.
One of the most important things that I learned growing up is that it is important to be fair. To allow me to be fair with Christmas gifts, I give each person in my family gifts of approximately the same monetary amount. I have a total budget for Christmas, and more or less divide it equally between this year’s recipients.
