Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher say they don't give their children gifts at Christmas

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher say they don't give their children gifts at Christmas

The couple share two children together

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher decided to kick off a family tradition of ‘no presents for the kids’ and have some pretty solid reasons for doing so.

The actors share two kids, eight-year old Wyatt and five-year old Dimitri, but if you thought having a couple of high earning Hollywood stars for parents would mean you’d wake up on December 25 to a mountain of presents under the tree, then think again.

Mila, 39, once revealed the ‘new tradition’ she and her husband introduced at Christmas time - no presents for the kids.

Speaking back in 2017, the Bad Moms’ star told ETOnline: “So far, our tradition is no presents for the kids.

“We're instituting it this year because when the kids are [younger than] one, it doesn't really matter.

“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.”

She then went on to say that the pair had even urged their parents to rein in their gift-giving during the festive period.

The Ted actor added: “We've told our parents, ‘We're begging you - if you have to give her something, pick one gift. Otherwise, we'd like to take a charitable donation, to the Children's Hospital or a pet, whatever you want.’ That's our new tradition.”

During the same interview, Mila stressed that she and Ashton had vowed to do all they could to make sure they didn’t ‘raise a**h*les’, which sounds like a pretty solid plan.

Meanwhile, Ashton has previously said that the couple also wouldn’t be providing a trust fund for their kids.

Speaking on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast in 2018, he said: "My kids are living a really privileged life, and they don’t even know it.

“And they’ll never know it, because this is the only one that they’ll know.

“I’m not setting up a trust for them. We’ll end up giving our money away to charity and to various things.”

Although Ashton, who is a bit of a serial investor on the side, said that he would support them if they had a decent business plan. “If my kids want to start a business, and they have a good business plan, I’ll invest in it. But they’re not getting trusts,” he added.
