    Default Christmas Presents; what & how much?? :)

    I know these threads get done to death and I'm sure lots of people are sick of these already and we haven't even hit December yet. I'm just curious to know what you are planning on buying your children for Christmas this year and if your comfortable to share how much you roughly spend on them? I love these threads as I need some inspiration. A lot of you lovely ladies have fantastic ideas (a department I lack in) which is super helpful to me. So....post away

    Ds1 - 4y - a teepee for his new bedroom and some Lego.

    DS2 - 2y - cladding some walls with blackboard paint covered board and some duplo.

    DS3 - 3m - jolly jumper and a ride on car. Got then secondhand - $17 all up.

    They also all get a stocking with pj's, a book, a bubble wand and some stickers. Aim to spend less than $100 each.

    I've just started buying stuff today - we don't really have a budget but I won't go crazy this year! I've only got one DS who just turned 4 so I'm thinking:

    A few Transformers ( his new obsession!)
    Fishing rod ( getting the same for DH)
    Planetarium ( he loves stars and planets)
    Remote control boat ( we are staying at in laws house on the water at xmas)
    Batman lego

    And then just some stuff for his stocking

    DS is easy but I've got 12 other kids from 3-18 to buy for so subbing for ideas !

    I bought a lot mid year at the toy sales.

    DD (3 years old)
    - a play tent
    - a bike. ( from Santa)
    - an Anna doll
    - kinetic sand
    - a Rapunzel doll
    - a toy cat
    - a book
    Total: $210

    DS (19 days old, will be about 8 weeks at Xmas time)
    - a Lamaze toy - a knight
    - a Scout dog
    - a Spot book.
    So about $50. I think I'll get DD to pick something else out for him as well

    And they are sharing a cubby ($160)

    I love Christmas threads! Put my tree up yesterday.; )
    DS1 and DS2 (8 and 6.5 years) get the same: scooter, mini CD player, CD, plus new PJs and a new outfit from us, some little things like tub of hair gel and suncream for the beach, KMART has a nice range of beach balls, frisbies this year, and a new totum tennis for the yard: approx. $120 each give or take.
    DD (2 years): mini CD player and Justine Clarke CD, baby born baby carrier and toy pram, plus new PJS and outfit from us, and a few things like sunhat. Approx $120. I found a nice wooden tea set with wooden pieces of cake, and a set of wooden people in felt outfits at Kmart, so she will get those from grandparents.

    Subbing for ideas too.

    They are getting a cubby
    Ds3.5 is getting a ride on tractor (I won it)
    DS 11 months is getting a fisher price crawl around car
    They will both get some books, little toys etc in their stocking.

    12 nieces and nephews - younger ones get Lego/duplo and the older ones are getting vouchers for 2 movies.

    We have bought a PS4 package as a joint present for our ds's $549
    We have bought them new fishing shirts $54 each.
    They will get one more thing each and that's it.
    Not going to worry too much about buying for ds3, he's only 9 weeks old.

    By any chance has anyone seen online a cool art supplies set up suitable for a 6/7 yr old? I don't want a cheap set but nothing over $100. DS loves his art and I would like a set just for him.
