    Default Re gifting between siblings

    Long story short, at Xmas we will have a 4 month old and a 2 and a bit year old.
    The 2 year old is just getting the idea of Xmas and presents.

    We personally are not fans of buying lots of gifts for babies at Xmas, and as we have SOOOO many toys already I was thinking of just wrapping dd1 old baby toys to give to DD2, mainly so that Dd1 feels dd2 is included ( she's starting to go through that phase) .

    Am I genius or is this tacky

    I think it's fine! Your 4 month old won't know and won't even be able to unwrap gifts so no issue at all.

    I'd just get the 4mo one keepsake for their first xmas (I'm sentimental like that), but otherwise think it's a great idea! The 4mo won't have any idea and you're reducing on expense, being environmentally concious, and not having to worry about where to store it all! Genius idea

    Great idea. I have a bub for xmas too and seriously they don't understand or care beyond where the food and snuggles are coming from! I have bought for DS2 but only bc my middle child still believes in Santa but is old enough to know Santa is regifting his old stuff lol DS2 has 1 pressie from Santa and one from us.

    Default Re gifting between siblings

    Last Xmas I had a 3yo, 5yo and 3 month old. 3 month old got one present from Santa, but honestly I don't think the other 2 really noticed, they were too interested in their own presents!
    I think your idea is genius, especially if 2yo is not really into the idea of Santa yet.

    GENIUS!! I wish you'd posted this before I went through all my son's old toys and got them out lol. He's four and so there's no way I'll be able to pretend that toys they have already been playing with are new from Santa

    I did that last christmas for my youngest (who was 9 months old at the time). Any toys my oldest recognised I just said 'Santa saw how much you enjoyed it, he wanted her to enjoy the same.'
