This year the adults in our family are all agreed that we will forgeo big presents and mindless ‘stuff’ in favour of wee mindings. Nothing big, just small gifts from the heart. Makes the gift buying process so much more meaningful. And don’t worry, my niece will get spoiled rotten as always (but with smart, re-usable, long lasting toys).
N.B. In Scots people might say “a wee minding” which can refer to a gift with the word “mind” being used to mean “remember” in the context that you were thinking of someone and “a wee minding” would usually be a small gift just to show you were thinking of the person.
