How can I teach my child to appreciate the gifts she gets?

The best approach in this kind of situation is to be a good example to your baby. When you receive a present, make sure to show appreciation, especially if your baby is with you. If she makes an effort of doing something for you, a drawing or just by helping you out, do not forget to thank her and mention that you appreciate what she did. You can also teach her how to say thank you to other people and learn how to praise her when she is polite instead of criticising her when she has done something wrong.
 
Another way to teach your baby how to appreciate gifts is to teach her how to value the gifts she is receiving. Although you are sometimes tempted to give her everything she wants, especially with toys, make sure not to overindulge her so that she can learn how to appreciate gifts from other people.
