How many gifts to give?

My cousin decided last year that this year her children would receive only three Christmas gifts citing that Jesus had three gifts – one from each wise man. She worried that they would feel short-changed. They did not. Instead, they were delighted and attentive.

Do you have a specific number of gifts that you give to your children or do you try to give them the world? Why?
