How many Santa presents versus presents from Mummy & Daddy, and grandparents?
We always got loads of santa presents and one or two from parents, but I'm inclined to give just one present from santa and the rest from me and daddy. Not that it matters much this year as he is only 1, but going forward this is the way I want it.
What's the go in your house?
I'm trying to not go crazy with the number of presents I buy DS... It's ridiculous how many pressies kids get these days IMO. I don't want him to always expect too much, and to understand the value of gift giving.

In our house, Santa gives 1 present and everything under the tree is from me and DP.

Santa always gave us lots. I think that was a good decision - it meant we believed our parents when they'd say, "No you can't have XYZ because we can't afford it."
I do the same to DD. Santa is the rich one, not me. lol.

We both knew once a year we'd get sugary crappy cereal lol
In my house santas BORING and gives underwear - lol. I'm thinking Santa can also get him like a water pistol and a few other things like that. But not a water pistol that looks like a gun.

DP and I have a 5 present limit. But we both end up going crazy and getting more than that so anything over the 5 is from Santa. Not sure how this will work once we have a dd or DS, as I don't want it to be too spoilt, but I just love giving gifts.

We usually give a large main present for the girls to share - ie trampoline, swing set, wooden play kitchen or anything that needs setting up. This is from us and then they each have a Santa Sack that Santa fills with smaller items, clothes, books, toys etc.
Originally when they older 2 were younger Santa gave most things but DH was sick of Santa getting all the credit for the big stuff! It also means if something needs assembling DH can do it the day before, instead of the night before in the dark, while trying to be quiet!
