100dayst-givingThe larger your family is, the more difficult Christmas shopping is. Either you spend a decent amount on everyone and have to spend a ton of money, or you spend a little bit on everyone and aren’t happy about the gifts you’re giving. Doing a Christmas gift name draw is a great way to get around this issue.

To do this, decide how far out you will extend the name draw. You may want to include nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. Depending on how many people there are in your group, you can have everyone draw for one or two names. You should have a predetermined price limit for a gift: $10 or $15 is a good one that should let everyone participate. Make sure no one draws their own name and plan on when you will exchange gifts.

If you have a lot of kids in the family, you might want to let them have their own gift draw. Each kid’s parents would be responsible for getting an age-appropriate gift for the name their child drew. This helps build friendship between cousins and gives kids the chance to get into the spirit of giving.
