    My kids are 3 and 5. I make sure they gave the same number and roughly the same size. I'll care more about dollar value when they start to understand it.

    Ok I went a bit OTT and made sure $$ was the same and no of presents were the same. They've got 2 each from Santa and 4 each from us. No big presents for either this year but think they got most of what they wanted on their lists where it was appropriate - requests for iPads, wii and other electronics were denied hehe

    We do one gift from Santa and 3-4x stocking stuffers each. Then 3 presents each per child.

I have got her large presents though and she has lots more stocking fillers so I'm hoping she won't notice. *restrains self from buying anything else*
    So I got DD another present today. I'm hopeless lol.

    Not so much $ wise but i made sure my kids had the same amount of gifts.
    When they unwrap them in xmas morning we usually hand them one each to unwrap till all done so the quantity needs to be fair.

    As for cost our eldest is 8 so its not a problem yet

    I am going out on Monday to even mine up and I don't think I have got them enough.

    I have been so disorganised this xmas. DP and I went overseas in November and I have found it so hard to get back into routine since coming back.

    We've got a young cousin coming to stay this year, which is making it tricky to "even out" gifts. The family is flying and so don't want to bring much or take much home, plus his parents don't tend to go as crazy with presents as I do.

    I've tried to co-ordinate with his mum so that Santa brings a similar number of gifts for my two (a 2 yo and a 4 mo) and their cousin (3 yo) and have reduced the number of gifts from us that I was planning. The problem, though, is still going to be that my two will also be getting presents from extended family, while his will be waiting for him at home - so while it's even overall, he may still feel gypped on the day.

    I'm not sure whether to leave it as is and hope he doesn't notice or will understand why (unlikely!), or whether to get him some extra, small things, which may raise his parents' ire if it has the effect of increasing his expectations for next year. I don't want him to feel hard done by and sad!
