Advance small but meaningful gifts to the beloved one, while expecting nothing in return. Ensure the gift has something to symbolize your relationship and love. Spend most of your time and finances to those in need. Put yourself into their shoes how you would feel if you were less fortunate. Try to make those who are suffering to feel accommodated.
- Make a countdown to Christmas that everyone can see. This will help you to feel more ‘Christmassy’ approach the material day. This also helps keep the little ones stay more anxious until the D-day.
