I've lost count for my 4 children. We go overboard every year but they only get our presents and maybe 3 or 4 more from family friends.

I am a sucker for watching them unwrap on the day, I get such a kick out of it!! Probably spent around $350-$400 per child (we have 3). It is all wrapped already and has been so for about two weeks so not sure exactly what I have got for them. A lot of Peppa Pig for DD2 who is a little obsessed, some Smiggle stuff for DD1, can't remember what I got for DD3 at all. Oh well it will all come back to me on the day
I am also doing the Xmas eve pressie this year - they will all get new pj's to wear plus a few nibbles to eat while we watch carols by candlelight on TV.
.......and I have got them a brand new outfit for Christmas Day. The outfit had to be comfy enough to wear on a plane as we leave for an overseas holiday Christmas night!

If this is how much money I have to look forward to when DS gets older spending I'm sticking with 1 kid! 😁

Very proud of myself as I haven't gone overboard (well I don't think I have). I figure the kids are still so young and most of the time like the boxes or wrapping more than the presents! Plus DS1 has his birthday early January so he gets more pressies then.
Ds1 (almost 2)
-paint with water books
-play tool set
Ds2 (7 months)
-my pal scout dog
-wooden teether toy
-wooden wobbly toy
Plus we got them a fisher price piano toy to share.

Slightly off topic but we didn't get a lot for the kids this year as we are just starting to get back on our feet financially and DD2 is only 10 weeks. However seeing other people posting photos on my fb or hearing others posts of how much they have got for their kids now I feel like I haven't done enough. I always want to do so much more for my girls and now I feel like a horrible mummy. I know I'm the only one that would care as they are too young to notice but I feel slightly sick about it :/

I know I'm being silly and theoretically I'm very practical about it all lol. I dunno maybe I just feel like it won't be as 'magical' or something. Or maybe I just need my 10week old to let me sleep tonight so I'm bright eyed tomorrow lol!!!

We aren't doing Christmas tomorrow so this could change/be added too when I finish up shopping when hubby gets home early January.
Nurf Tent things..
Nurf accessories & more bullets
DS1 & DS2 at 5 and 6 they are very much into the same things so have bought them the same presents :/
Fly swats (gag present!)
Ankle socks for DS1, poor thing has been folding his normal ones down all Term 4.
Xbox games (DF to pick)
Wahu swimming toys
Peppa Pig playhouse
Nurf water gun
Fly Sway (gag present!)
Ergo doll carrier
Some figurines for a doll house a friend is giving us
xbox one and games
Travel Mug for work
About $2200+ I'm not sure what DF has organized for me we usually have equal budgets for each other but I have asked him not to include the cost of the console in that!
Seems really excessive reading through the thread but we don't buy much during the year, just at birthdays and Christmas.
