I'm amazed at how many people have adopted the Need, Want, Wear, Read philosophy this year (as well as the Elf on the Shelf tradition). We first implemented this popular gift giving strategy back in 2010, but modified it a bit to Read, Wear, Play as our spoiled only child needed and wanted for nothing.
Fast forward to 2012 and the '4 gift only' rule is still in effect and being applied to our happy foursome.
As you know the adults in our family aren't exchanging gifts this holiday season and it was only today that I finally got around to buying Gabriel his first - and only - present from Santa (see 'want' item below).
But regardless of our low key, low budget Christmas, I still wanted to play along with some of my bestest bloggy friends (see here, here, here and here) and post the Knol's fantasy wish lists.
