Our two lovely girls love each other to bits. But they can also bicker by the hour. As parents, we encourage and guide them to love and care for each other because they are sisters. One of the things we added this year is the ceremonial sisters exchange gifts for Christmas. It will be a new holiday tradition for our family.

These kids love each but could also argue like there’s no tomorrow. Part of bringing them closer is their ceremonial Sisters Exchange Gift.

Budget for the Gift

We told the kids that they each have P200 to spend for the gift so they have to find a nice item that the other one likes. We brought them to the SM Store at SM City Bacolod. And thankfully, there were many items that they could choose from that are easy on the budget.

Shawna receives an allowance or reward money from us from time to time. So she has some extra money on top of the P200-budget. And she was willing to spend more on her sister.

We decided on an article of clothing for Achi Shawna because she is growing up fast!

They were just so excited to go shopping for each other! Watch their video below:

Selecting the Gift

Shawna went with her Dad while Shane went around with me. We went to the different sections. Shane settled on a pink striped hoodie top for Achi Shawna. It costs P199.75.

Meanwhile, Shawna decided on a sequinned unicorn stuffed toy for Shane. She knows that her little sister is crazy about unicorns so it’s just about fitting to get her one.

The stuffed toy, however, costs P299.75. Achi Shawna willingly shelled out an extra P100 just to get Shane what she liked. It’s a really heartwarming thought.

Sisters Exchange Gifts on Christmas Eve

The girls had to place the gifts along with the rest of their presents under our Christmas tree. They had to wait for 11 days in order to open their presents. That’s part of the delayed gratification training.

The Big Reveal

We got home after the Christmas service at Bacolod Trinity Christian Church where the kids performed a song number with their cousins.

The kids heard another version of the Christmas story and afterwards, they held their sisters exchange gifts.

Best Friends and Sisters

We are encouraging these two girls to become best friends for life because there are only the two of them. They should have each other’s backs. Since we are homeschooling, they did not grow up with classmates that can before best friends.

But don’t tell us that is the downside of homeschooling. Hubby and I both went to traditional school but never made life-long best friends from our classmates either.

We have good friends. And then there are our closest friends that are not from school. We have lived this experience so our kids are fine.

It is our desire that no matter where life leads them, they will always have a family in each other. <3

  1. I so love Siobe’s reaction. 🙂

    And thank you for sharing your new Christmas tradition to us. Gives us an idea for the next holidays to come, esp. with our 2 eldest girls always fighting over petty things and kuya becoming more independent as he is reaching puberty. I am confident that this can help siblings become closer and look forward to the holiday seasons as well. 🙂

  2. Ahw! So sweet! Love how they feel the essence of Christmas! I should have this tradition with my little boy and my newborn pamangkin by next year 🙂 Thank you for this wonderful post. Indeed, it’s nice to exchange gifts with your own family. 🙂

  3. This is so sweet and thoughtful. Made me wish I had a sister, too. I had fun watching the video. Happy to know that they love the gifts they got. It goes to show that they know each other very well.

  4. Awww….sweet! Now I want a stuffed unicorn, too! Hahaha…sisters are forever best friends! Or maybe, frenemies?? Hehehe! I know, I have two of them 😌 and I’m often stuck in the middle 😂
