I still have a little bit of Christmas shopping to do and one thing I always think about is how when it comes to buying gifts for kids that are in the same family I wonder if it would be good to buy them a shared gift. For example, it’s kind of like saying you can get the boy and a girl their own dolls and action figures. Or, you can combine your budget for the both of them and get like say a toy vehicle that they can both ride with.
Sometimes I think it does make more sense where at the same time it can be cheaper funny enough. A good example is if they own a video game system then you can buy the latest and greatest game that is multiplayer as opposed to getting them each something that may not be as good simply for the sake that they each have their own item. I usually find group items better for adult gifts such as buying the family a new kitchen appliance that everyone can use. You can get a good large gift, save time and money.
