Do you you do this? Do your kids give/receive presents 'from' their siblings? We never did it as kids and DP is an only child. DS just said he wants to get DD a hootabelle for her birthday
Just wondering whether there's any downsides to doing this, I'm sure there are some I can't thing of.

Birthday presents from siblings?

My girls pick out a present for each others birthdays they love doing it and I think the other appreciates it a little more knowing big/little sister picked this out for me
I personally can't see any downside, maybe more $$ but than you could always buy one less thing so it equals out too
Sometimes my girls have just picked a few little things from the $2 shop ( hair ties, bracelets ect

Yes we always get the girls to pick a card and present to give to their sister when it's one of their birthday. It's never anything expensive but each of my girls love giving a present.

We do this for birthdays and Christmas - imo, it's a lovely way to teach kids about the joy of giving.

We do it too. I don't know who gets more excited... the one giving the present or the one receiving it! I'm trying to think of a downside, but I can't think of one.
I guess it could cost more, but the gifts don't have to be extravagant.

I have a book series that I bought and my boys pick a book to give to each other for birthdays/Christmas. That way it is affordable and I don't have to do a special shopping trip with just one kid.

My DD (4yrs) doesn't have a sibling yet, but I always get her to make birthday gifts for her grandparents, aunts and uncles. She loves doing it, and I think it teaches about giving to others instead of just getting. I think choosing a small gift for a brother or sister is a lovely idea, and maybe make a card to go with it

Great I think we'll go with it I was thinking I might hear stories of 10 year old sisters getting Spiderman figurines because that's what their 6 year old brother says she really really wants. Or fights over who got who a better present

We do it. We give them a budget and let them choose. I love it as they often get something I would never think of.
