Gift Ideas for the 7 Gift Rule

The 7 Gift Rule is a great way to keep your gift count low while maximising the quality of gifts.

The idea is that you get your child 7 gifts, one that falls under each category.

After many hours of searching, I have compiled a list to help you find the perfect 7 gifts without the worry of overdoing it!
