Need a New TV This Christmas? Make it a Family Present

We all have to be smart about the money that we spend this Christmas. With the economy in the shape that it is in, we really need to make sure that we spend our money as wisely as possible.

Instead of purchasing presents just for the sake of having lots of pretty boxes under the Christmas tree this year, why not give family presents that everyone will enjoy? Is there something that you are planning on purchasing for the house anyway? If that something is something that everyone in the family wants, wouldn’t it make a great gift for the whole family?

How long has it been since you’ve purchased a new TV? We had been wanting to replace the tv in our family room with a new flat screen TV but since our old TV was still adequate, we just hadn’t replaced it. All of the kids reminded us every time we sat down to watch a movie or a baseball game how great it would be to have a nice big flat screen TV.

So, when they least expected it, we surprised everyone and had a new TV all set up and ready to watch last Christmas morning.

They couldn’t have been happier. We all had really wanted this big flat screen TV for quite a while yet, we just didn’t see how we could buy it with Christmas coming. Then we thought about the types of things that we would be buying for Christmas and thought, why were we spending our money on things that we weren’t even sure would get used more than a week after Christmas when what we really all wanted was a new tv that we knew would get used for years to come?

Money doesn’t come easy. Make sure that you spend it on what you really want and need; on what you will get your best value from, on what will give your family enjoyment for years.

If there is something that your family would really love and it will provide hours of great time spent together, seriously consider making it a great family gift this Christmas.
