    We have gone above and beyond what we usually spend. The boys are each getting an electronic toy!

    DS1 (7.5 years): 3DSXL plus 1 game (from Santa), stocking containing undies, socks, new pjs. From us, a new outfit from Cotton on and a pair of shoes.
    DS2 (6 years): the same.
    DD (1.5 years): in her stocking there is a Smiggle backpack and a mushroom play tent from CottonOn, Wahu water safety vest as well as some musical instuments (maracas etc). From us, some new shoes, swimming costume and new outfit from CottonOn.
    Joint present: milkshake maker
    Summary: $400 for each of the boys and $150 for DD.
    I just can't wait for Christmas morning.

    Dp: tickets for watching walking with dinosaurs in gold class. Dinosaurs bed set. A dinosaur bowl. Dinosaur soap dish and dinosaur shaped soaps. Dino strike for wii.

    I think I spent around 2000 for everything. My kids don't get gifts off other people so what comes from me is it.

    It was a choice between paying the rent and buying them gifts.

    Mine are only 2 and 3, so they won't notice none of the gifts are from my ex, or myself. My grandmother has sent a bag of gifts and my son's uncle has sent him a couple too. So they have presents to open.

    I spent more than usual. It's because I started shopping early this year, usually I shop the week before Christmas and spend about $150 per kid, but because I started about a month ago I've just kept buying and buying! I don't want to add it up but possibly about $300 per kid. However it's all good stuff, that they will get hours and hours of value out of, and all stuff they really wanted/needed.

    DS1 is a fanatical reader so is getting about 12 new books, all good quality some hardcover which he loves and respects. Lego, clothes, puzzles.

    DD is getting a whole crate full of craft stuff, including crafty bits and pieces, new paints, canvases, craft kits, sewing kits, cross stitches, etc. She will LOVE it. Perfume, make-up (for home), Smiggle stuff. I also got her an obligatory toy because the boys got Lego, she got a Fijit friend that I found on sale. Clothes, books.

    DS2 is getting the new Skylanders game. He'd never forgive Santa if he didn't. Lego, clothes, books. Ermm I can't even remember what else. I did a lot of obligatory buying for him as well, to even up the amount of gifts because of what I bought the other 2. But he hasn't really found what he's 'into' yet, so I just got bits and pieces I think.

    I even bought myself presents this year. I got a fancy new food processor, new perfume, sunnies, clothes. I want a replacement iPod with my Flybuys points but have run out of time I think.

    So excited for Christmas!
