The sincerest form of flattery

Save your child from forced sincerity by helping them make the best, most affordable Christmas gifts. First, buy plain mugs in bulk. Then ask your child to make a list of cute and/or funny names and phrases they call family members, or which superhero they liken them to. Let your child spend time online finding the perfect images for each family member, and get the words or images printed onto the cups. Get coloured paper and let your child make cards with Christmas well wishes and notes as to what their cup words/images mean. The gesture will garner giggles and genuine smiles, and leave your child euphoric with how worthwhile their hard work was.
