I do occasionally.
We dont do xmas and nomally i dont care what other families do on the day, what they receive etc. But this year the excess of gifts, the gluttony of food and drink on the day has really gotten under my nose. I saw on my fb page, kids with like 30 presents under a tree. OMG it was disgusting, do these people not think it is waaay over indulgent? Where is the line? Who on this earth, needs that much stuff let alone children?? HOW do these parents afford it all. Some spend $500 per child. I would struggle to spend $100 on my kids with toys they would actually love and appreciate. It's just so OTT. How do you guys do it all year round for bdays/xmas etc??

There is a very big difference between I don't understand why, and I think it maybe over the top. Too it disgusting.
Just because you do the understand something it doesn't make it disgusting.
In the past my kids have had lots of presents under the tree. They got all there school supplies as well as much need clothes books and a few toys.
Some family only buy new toys and clothes at Christmas.
I have kids ranging from 3 to 22 and believe me spend hundreds is so easy. One basic laptop (need for school) 500 gone. One game for a pc/game system 80 buck gone. One good trampoline 300 gone.

As re gifting I do it if...
*we can't use the gift.
*the gift giver won't be hurt if I do.
*the receiver will love it.
