I just heard from my wife about a poor kid in one of her classes (she teaches 7th grade)who hasn't had any gifts under the tree in two years.
The teachers took up a collection for him and got him a couple pairs of jeans...
I went out and for only 200 bucks got the kid a BMX bike and helmet!!!
Nothing like a bike under the tree!
and it feels really good!!!!
Start a new tradition and get a kid you dont know a bike
It goes along way this time of year.

Your wife is an educator? That's great! Here in NC, I work as a guidance counselor at an elementary school. We sponsored some 50+ needy children this year and also some residents at a nursing home to the tune of around $4,000. I myself contributed around $175. I bought two kids trick scooters + protective gear. It really is better to give than receive! Happy holidays to all!
