Jessa Duggar took to Instagram on December 23 and let fans know how her family handles gift exchanges on Christmas. It’s no secret the Duggars, who gained fame on 19 Kids & Counting, have a lot of family members and Jessa explained exactly how the group handles the holiday chaos!
Jessa, 27, shared photos of her son Henry standing in the trunk of her minivan to help load presents and another of him holding a pile of wrapping paper. “My little gift wrapping buddy,” she captioned the gallery.
The Counting On star had several presents in the back of her car. One fan asked, “Do you guys buy for every person in your family or how do you guys work it?”
Jessa explained, “We do a gift exchange with my family. We draw names, and each person buys for one other family member. We split guy/girls, and adults/kids, so 4 groups total.”
She added, “It’s so fun and makes it where you can buy more meaningful gifts and not just dollar store trinkets for the 40+ of us.”
Jessa, Jill, Jinger, Josiah, Josh, Joseph, and Joy-Anna are all married with children and John David is expecting his first child in January 2020. All of them combined, excluding John David, 29, have 16 kids as of December 2019.
In 2019 alone, there were five new additions to the family. Jessa gave birth to Ivy Jane in May, Josiah’s wife Lauren gave birth to Bella Milagro, Josh’s wife Anna gave birth to Maryella Hope, Joseph’s wife Kendra gave birth to Addison Renee, and their cousin Amy gave birth to Daxton Ryan.
This year, Jinger, 26, is unlikely to join her family or meet her new nieces and nephews on Christmas as she moved to Los Angeles in June. The mom-of-one was visited by her husband Jeremy’s parents on December 20 ahead of the holidays and her birthday.
