How do other parents do their xmas presents particularly from father xmas? this is the first year i wont be with my girls when they wake up and i was going to go to my ex's house early before they wake but i dont think thats happening anymore. My problem is i have presents from santa (especially for my 6 year old who asked for an elsa doll) and i now dont know how i will do it! Im hoping we can put our **** to the side but im not liking the chances. Has anyone done the "Santa dropped a couple of gifts for you here too" thing? I have a stocking for them and a santa sack/pillow case each for them and their dad barely has a tree.
I need your advice please ad thank you

We just tell my DSS's that santa visited our house as well cause when you get two homes he goes to both of them.

That's the best thing about having 2 households- Santa makes a delivery at both!

This year my DDs are with their Dad until sometime Xmas day (he hasn't given me a time )...so as they will be back on Christmas Day, Santa presents will be in their room when they come back. The ones from us will be under the tree.
Previous years when I haven't seen them at all on Christmas Day, we have another night to do Santa and celebrate Christmas together.

We do the opposite, santa only goes to the house when there kids wake up. It used to be a little different as ex was having santa visit his home too, but this year the kids are with him and I've said that santa will only visit them at his home.
My reason for that is that I have another dd now and santa will visit her at my house and it would be unfair and hard to explain why her sisters get two lots of santa presents. As it is they will get presents from their dad, and presents from their stepdad and I, but dd4 will only get presents from her dad and I.
From what ex has told me, santa will be much more Stingey this year than in my years as he didn't bother doing shopping till the last minute and couldn't afford much, whereas I do mine during the big layby sales. This is something for him to deal with an explain if the kids comment.

For my DD1 she will have xmas day here so santa comes here.
She goes to XH on boxing day and in previous years santa has left her a small present at his house too

This caused huge confusion for me when I spent my first xmas with DH. Santa drops presents at both houses?? It still doesn't sit right with me but we do it (especially as the year they are with their mother, they go out of state, so it's not like he's "in the area anyway").This year the kids were with us. Santa was very generous (we got yelled at because of it). The kids also get a present from us- bikes this year. In our house, no idea what their mother does and she won't say, Santa brings small things in the sack and useful things (undies, socks etc) in the stocking. The big presents are from us.Do what works. I would advise, if possible to check with the other parent with what they are getting. Be odd for santa to bring the same thing to each house (happened to us last year...nightmare).
EFC: The reason I find this so hard to do, and comprehend, is that when DH and I have kids (hopefully), they will only get 1 set of Santa presents...
