I don't have a large family, and my two siblings have no kids. My problem is not being able to afford the really cool things I would like to for the family I do have.
My best friend was in the same situation as you. I think they finally realised that it would easier, and cheaper, to just draw kids names. I'm not sure how it would work in yours, how would you divide the names, how many kids per gift buyer? When I try to think about it, the numbers get to me, I hate math
. I'm not very helpful, am I?
I think a neat idea would be to do a theme each year, one year pajama's, another maybe books...etc. With having a theme, I think it would keep the cost down too.
Do you think your family would be open to changing it for next year?
