    I'm not organised or sure what to get DS this Xmas!

    In the past we have spent around $200 on DS, and usually comprises one big thing and a couple of smaller things.

    This year (if we can afford it) we may get a Wii-U, or a trampoline. We'll see.

    Thanks for all the replies We don't really have a budget as such, however we normally buy them a big present each and a stocking full. This year though I can't think of what to buy them so a stocking it is. Plus, I'm sick of how much they get from everyone, especially all the plastic stuff. We have decided to buy them one toy each (about $30-$40) then books, beach towel and zinc cream, tickets to movies, board game etc. Now to stick to it.... haha!

    I only started yesterday. One down, four to go!

    Has anyone seen the retro gifts/stocking stuffers in Myer?? I'm going to go crazy in there tomorrow!

    We are spending around $400 per child this year (except for our newborn). Each year is different depending on our financial situation.

    Can I ask if it didn't sew or just broke?

    I agree. DD1 (9) got one for her birthday. Too hard to use and when we did work it out what it sewed was crap.

    For everyone:
    A few board games I grabbed earlier in the year.

    Just need to get a couple of small stocking fillers and that's it. All presents are from us, as we don't include Santa
    I grabbed the last of the stuff yesterday, they have all got something 'Nerf' as well. Four different things, because, if they were all the same that would be boring...just hoping there's no fighting over particular ones
