Here's why Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher's kids won't be getting any presents this Christmas
If your kids are currently working their way excitedly through this Christmas’ most sought-after toys’ list, spare a thought for the children of Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher.
The down to earth couple have revealed that the couple have decided not to give their children any Christmas presents this year.
But there’s a really sweet reason behind it.
The actors, who starred in ‘That ’70s Show’ together, have revealed that they don’t plan on giving their children, three-year-old Wyatt and ten-month-old Dimitri, gifts for Christmas.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kunis, who has a Jewish background, explained that though she fully participates in Christmas traditions, like decorating the tree, when it comes to the giving of gifts she and Kutcher have chosen to be more mindful of how their kids view that time of year.
“We’re instituting it this year because when the kids are [younger than] one, it doesn’t really matter,” she said.
“Last year when we celebrated Christmas, Wyatt was two and it was too much.”
“We didn’t give her anything ― it was the grandparents. The kid no longer appreciates the one gift. They don’t even know what they’re expecting; they’re just expecting stuff.”

Instead the ‘Bad Mums’ actress (who’s promoting ‘A Bad Mums Christmas’, out November 1) has asked her well-intentioned parents and in-laws to stick to the giving of just one present.
“‘We’re begging you — if you have to give her something, pick one gift,” she said. “Otherwise, we’d like to take a charitable donation, to the Children’s Hospital [of Los Angeles] or a pet [or] whatever you want. That’s our new tradition.”
The family aren’t the only celebrities to raise eyebrows for their parenting decisions. Just last week, Victoria Beckham received attention for revealing she gives her children seeds doused in organis aminos for their after school snack.
