In that case I'd suggest a time he can drop things of when you're not there and maybe offer to email a short video of ds opining the present.
Of he says anything about it not being good enough you can then explain that gifts are supposed to be for the joy of the receiver, and of necessary ask him to look at his motives

Quick Advice Please - Ex wants to bring over Xmas Presents
Yeah, if all he really wants is for you to have the presents then he should be satisfied with dropping them when you aren't there. If on the other hand he wants to see you and talk to you then he needs to tell you that so that you can decide whether you want to give him that opportunity.

Thanks, I think I will txt him that I am home this morning baking so if he wants to drop them off that is okay (he will probably say I need to be here ie: will likely be chocolate he won't leave in heat or will use as excuse!) I will make it clear it is not to discuss our relationship (which has ended) then he will have to talk to me another time when my son is not here. Hopefully that will give me a peaceful Xmas and not unexpected visitors I am still nervous though, but I know he will persist.

I dated a guy for 3years, and he came over at Christmas time to give DS a present. We are civil. We talk, as friends do with no ill feelings towards each other. Sure, it feels weird sometimes but I think that's just me thinking this guys seen me naked and what not, it's not that I'm getting weird vibes or anything.
I would allow him to come over. If you feel uncomfortable, ask a friend to be around coincidentally at the same time. I would either get something really small or get DS to make something so the focus becomes more on him and your DS rather than you and him.
