    Geez. I saw "do it yourself" bon bon's there as well. Advent calenders? Is there a rubber in one? Sharpener in another? *Shakes head* dd1 has all this Smiggle stuff and refuses to take it to school. She values it too much. Smiggle stocks for xmas I think. For sure.

    Smiggle are amazing. I used to get 50% off the full price there. I miss it. I'm like your DDs, a stationary nut.

    'We' don't get them clothes but 'Santa' does. Our present is something special, whereas santa's is a lot if stuff they need like undies, socks, pjs etc, plus a few little extras like a book, some earrings, smiggle etc, maybe a puzzle when they were younger and a DVD- that kind of stuff.

    ABSOLUTELY!

    I stop at nothing! For DS 2nd birthday- he got a potty! Figured if it came in a present form- he'd be more willing to use it. Clothes wise, DS is getting some board shorts and some undies (the undies were decided last night when he pulled a size 2-3 pair of of his drawer- he's 7 btw ). DS got a lot of clothes for his birthday in September so doesn't really need any more clothes other than the ones he's getting.

    There is one thing that is traditional in our family from when my parents were kids - socks, jocks and knickers as part of their presents.

    MOTH also laughs because as a child he always got jocks n socks in the Santa sack too.

    FIL says he always looked forward to his home knitted socks at Christmas as a child.

    It's one of those things that is neither right or wrong and it's up to each family to do as they see fit.

    For my family, it's part of keeping Christmas humble

    Default Do you give your kids clothes for Christmas?

    This is only DS's 2nd Christmas but I brought him an new outfit to day for Christmas. It's from a little boutique that I wouldn't normally buy things from and it something nice to wear on Christmas Day.

    It is another thing to open along with the toys and other 'wants'. We always got a new item of clothing for Christmas and I always loved it because it was something brand named named that we didn't always get during the year.

    Yep dd gets clothes and shoes (if she needs them) for Christmas. She loves clothes but doesn't like clothes shopping so gifting clothes is perfect. She absolutely loves shoes too. I think it's rather special gifting a new pjs, socks, undies and outfit for Christmas gives them something new, fresh and special to wear on the day and in the holidays. I guess it depends on whether your child is a clothes kind of person. Some people are not even as adults they could care less about what they wear.
