There's room for you at the table.

You are probably wondering who should be getting a gift, what budgets you are expected to spend, and who should get what exactly. Christmas and the whole holiday season has become the season to consume, over-consumption is absolutely rampant and your nephews request for a new Wii controller may make you his worst aunt or uncle — but standing up to it all and bucking the system may well be the most refreshing move you ever make. The emphasis should be on the people we are supported and surrounded by and how much we appreciate each other.
