Q: How do people curb gift giving from family? I had the smallest get-together possible for my son's 2nd birthday (7 adults total and the birthday toddler), and still I felt like 'where am I am going to put all these toys?' when it was over. Christmas is just around the corner, how do I tell them "Thanks, but keep it minimal?".

Editor: Readers, how do you gracefully (and still graciously) ask friends and family to go easy with giving your children gifts?
