I'm doing the list for stocking stuffers and making sure both DP and DS have a new tshirt to wear on Christmas Day -
Do you buy yourself the same little things that make Christmas special? Mum can't be the only one without a stocking and a new shirt to wear (and underwear for those not in nappies - it's just not Christmas without new undies) can she?

Do you buy yourself Christmas presents?

Only my kids have stockings. It never occurred me to for DH or I to have stockings to be honest.
DH and I sometimes do presents and sometimes we don't. I've bought him something I hope he will love (the reissued Atari) and he may decide he has an idea for me. Or he'll ask.

I don't usually but I spied a beautiful emerald green dress in Big W that I'm going to buy. I don't wear Xmas themed clothes or earrings but I often wear something green or something red.
The boys usually get clothes for Xmas so they might wear that. DH doesn't care.
And we only do stockings for the kids.

I often buy my own present from hubby, because I usually ask for clothes from him and it's easier for everyone involved if I buy them myself lol.

Stocking stuffers yes I do. Anything else then no.
Eta: anyone that stays Christmas Eve gets a stocking as well. Even if they didn't bring their own.

Yes of course!!
I'm a single mum though, so who else is going to buy presents for me!
Plus my kids would be upset if I didn't get any presents.

No. If hubby, mum or the kids don't get me one I go without. Do and I usually get something practical for each other and if have spare cash than something fun.
If I was a single mum with young kids I would. If they were old enough I would give them cash and let them choose.

have never understood the concept of "new clothes for Christmas". I just bang on whatever looks good and suits the weather.
I don't buy myself anything "for Christmas". I just buy things as I need/want during the year.
dh is the same. consequently we don't really bother with Xmas gifts for each other.
Xmas is about the little ones and they're the only ones it's fun to really buy for.
