How Does the Four Gifts Rule Work?

Our family does "the four gift rule" for Christmas presents- "something I want, something I need, something to wear, something to read."  I really enjoy this way of organizing presents, because I feel it makes the gift giving simple and easy to track.  Mainly for our benefit, but perhaps for someone else's enjoyment, here was our list for the year.
