    I honestly haven't organised a single item and just started thinking about it last night.

    I think it's going to be a tough one. DD will be 8.5 and is kind of over toys... but not quite into the teenage stuff yet either.

    I'm thinking - a few 3DS games. A Moshi Monsters voucher thing. A voucher for Australia Zoo and maybe an animal experience there. Some clothes. Some books. Some of those "logic," game puzzle things.

    That's probably about it.

    This year I have been buying stuff all year long and only just realised how overboard I've gone...DD has never had a Christmas like this before...

    5 x big Lalaloopsy's
    1 x Limited edition Lalaloopsy
    I don't know how many small one...
    Lalaloopsy Play House/Roller coaster thing
    Littlest Pet Shop Tree House
    Some single Littlest Pet Shop pets (I don't remember how many...)
    Connect Four
    Monopoly
    Batman DVD (the 90's cartoon)
    Wizard of Oz DVD
    A whole pile of books

    In all fairness, she is so overdue for a massive toy overhaul and I've been giving away/selling and decluttering like crazy so she only has her current and Christmas Lalaloopsy/LPS sets...

    We are trying to avoid toys this year. DD1 will get a bike off Santa, not sure what big present to get DD2. We will probably buy them a new trampoline to share, but give it to them early - DH and I are way too old to be sitting up all hours Xmas Eve putting stuff together.

    I remember the year my cousin bought her kids a big tramp for Christmas. I knew that's what was on the list & when I spoke to her Christmas day, her & her hubby finally got to bed at some ridiculous hour like 2am after putting the whole thing together in near darkness

    We are thinking of getting dd almost 3yo a trampoline or a balance bike. Also a new bag, peppa pig book, a DVD, a tea set, pyjamas, extra pieces for her train set, a pair of shoes and her first undies for toilet training (Father Christmas will be encouraging this )

    I remember when my brothers and I got a trampoline for Christmas, my parents (Santa) had put a note on the Christmas tree with string that we had to follow outside that lead us to the put together trampoline. We were sooo excited!! Was the best Christmas present.

    My baby will be 4 months at Christmas time, we have got her a gold baby bracelet and have to get it engraved. Will also get her some toys and clothes.
