$0. Much easier that way. Planning on moving house in the next few months so the last thing I want is to potentially buy toys that won't fit in the new house. Nothing worse than buying presents you don't end up needing.

Around 300 for two kids the good thing about the laybys you can pick a few different things and if they are really not interested in them nothing's stopping you from returning those items when you pick up the layby, it's almost a saving thing if you do because its extra cash for the present they really want!

$38 on a big tub of Lego basic colours for DS birthday at the end of November. For the rest we will wait. He wants more reading eggs, loves taking photos and wants to see the stars so a telescope or camera may be on the cards- but only if the interest is still there.

I put all the bigger presents on laybuy and spent almost $500.
That's for my 4 year old twins, my 6mo first birthday present and presents for my niece.
Still have stocking fillers and a few little things to get but they can wait a few months!

Nothing. I really can't deal with the rush and the crowds and the acres of plastic fantastic. Then later in the year I'll find something else I want to buy and they will end up with too much again.
So yeah, $0

I spent about $400 including dd Xmas and bday, Xmas and bday for my neice and Xmas for nephews x 2.think I did pretty well. Dd getting a smart trike for her birthday and a little tikes little people large farm set (but I think my pa will pay for that for her bday) and light show pillow pet and a lagoon water sand play table for Xmas. And might just get a couple of bits of clothes to go with but that's pretty much it not going over board.
