DD is 4.5 and is getting a bike from us as she has outgrown her current one. Santa sack so far has puzzles x 4, about 4 books, water bottles, hand towels for kinder, playdoh, and Disney DVDs. Not sure how much I have spent
DS is 2 and is harder to buy for...he is getting a ukele and some play food for their kitchen from us. So far Santa sack has a water bottle, underwear, some books, a ball and a bucket. Might add some bath toys I think.
For both: a slip n slide and some sprinkler-type water toys.

Christmas Presents; what & how much?? :)
I love these threads too!
I have saved up for Christmas and have gone a little nuts!
It's my first year with two kids, and even though dd ( love writing that!) will only be 6 months and doesn't need anything, I want ds to see that they get the same number of presents. I am going by number of presents to open rather than a dollar value.
I also totally forgot that ds could pick a present for dd! Ooh I'm excited about this! And dd one for ds!
I think kinetic sand will be a big hit! In 20 yrs time when our kids (read kids all over Australia) are buying their kids christmas presents they'll be like, 'remember that kinetic sand stuff' much like we remember slinkies or troll dolls or gak!

We don't have a set amount some years it's $100 some over $1500 (outdoor play set)
So far we have-
Giant bike and helmet -$260
New Harry Potter book cover collection- $110
Little tikes pirate water table -$99
Disney cars and planes stuff -$100
I've also spent $20-$30 each on stocking stuff.
I have been trying to get both kids a puppy surprise with no luck too.

Shopping for my 2 is always so hard. But i am often limited in what I can afford.. so $100 is usually heaps for us.

I think we got a little carried away with the excitement of Dd's first Christmas and bought more than we intended. We've got her a music play table, Winnie the Pooh books, two board books, clothes, and a teething toy. It probably all adds up to close to $300. Next year I plan to set the budget first and then shop!

So far, DD (2) has had pretty cheap presents... a couple of useful things, or project I've done around the house for her. Not sure about this Christmas. So far:
-Schleich animals to add to her collection (spent about $50, half retail price)
-Single bedding set ($20-$25). She'll get this for Christmas if we get her a bed by then
Not sure whether I'll get her anything else. May end up about $100

Ds is getting a new updated beach body board, some David Attenborough dvd series, some pillow cases for his bed in the caravan, a new helmet and some new tops, and some kind of toy- maybe a remote control car or something.
Ultimately, all he wants is to go on holidays and we are doing that and most of the other stuff are just things that require updating.
I'm getting all my nieces and nephews body boards. We're taking a family holiday to the beach over new years so they can use them there.
