    He has plenty already and things to open. He'll be none the wiser.

    Last year we had Christmas mid-January after a PICU stay. They had no idea that they'd missed actual Christmas Day.

    But thank you.

    This year we are going on our first ever overseas holiday in January so I didn't want to spend much on Christmas. Yesterday I caved in and bought the kids a scooter each for $45, so $135.

    Too much!
    But both of my girls get:

    New summer pj's
    Couple of outfits for summer
    New towels for the beach or pool
    Sometimes new swimming costumes, not this year
    Books to encourage reading

    so plenty of it is stuff they need rather than want.
    Some toys as well.
    Struggling to justify how much they have- sometimes things don't even get taken out of the box.

    A trampoline to share.

    Ds1 is getting a truck with some little cars in it, plus heaps of matchbox cars for his stocking, plus he saw a fire truck in Kmart he wants so I'll get him that too.

    Dd is getting a Jump in muddy puddles Peppa, a playdough set, barbie, bubbles and lip balm for her stocking.

    Ds2 is getting a truck, plus heaps of matchbox cars for his stocking. I'll also pick him up something tomorrow too.

    We try not to go overboard at christmas time because half of the toys don't get played with.

    DD is 21 months and is getting:

    Tee pee -$100
    Peppa Pig talking soft toy -$30
    My little pony - $40
    Garden water play mat and flower sprinkler - $30
    Bucket and spade - $4
    Plastic sit on 'bike' (no pedals) - $9

    So $213.

    I'm scared to see what the grandparents get her! DD doesn't need any more toys really. Unsure what to buy her for her 2nd birthday in March. I hate stockpiling toys and she has enough clothes.

    I think next year she gets one present from us and one from Santa I'd rather buy toys for the wishing tree for kids who really need it.


    Me 31, He 34, DD 21 months, waiting for just 1 more to complete our family.

    DD isn't actually get anything! Well not on Christmas day anyway. We're getting her a baby seat for the back of my husband's bike but we won't be able to sort it until new year as the bike is in storage
    Luckily she's got no idea what's going on at her and anyway, she'll be getting heaps so stuff from other people.

    DD -LOTR stuff, quite a bit, costing quite a bit lol hunger games trilogy, a bike and helmet, a billabong bag

    DS - an ipod, a bike, skylanders figures, octonauts stuff, a rip curl bag

    the stockings

    I spent about 800 for both of them. When kids are little they are easily pleased. When mine were small I was shocked what some spent. Then my kids hit school. They want ipods, bikes, phones and expensive stuff.

    Name labels
    Star Wars Yoda DVD
    Toothbrush
    Bubble bath
