Mine have about 35 each shock 10 of those are stocking fillers of things around a pound nothing more then a fiver.

I haven't spent loads but as they're older and its things like dvds and ps3 games it really doesn't look like much compared to previous years of bikes and large similar presents.

When I was a child I got a sack of presents but my parents cheated a little and put all the presents from family in the sack, Santa gave us one large gift ( around £30 ) and several smaller gifts which were things like felt tip pens, colouring books, socks, pants and some chocolate ( remember those plastic money boxes full of chocolate balls?). as we go older the presents got less, when I was 10/11 we stopped having sacks and just had a couple of gifts under the tree. We didn't have a lot of toys, spent most of our time playing in the garden or out on our bikes grin sadly things have changed.

My DC don't do lists.

They have a shared present (a hutch/run/equipment) because we are adopting three guinea pigs on the 28th (it was planned ages ago but a health issue meant we had to wait a further two months for them to be healthy enough to be adopted, so not buying a pet as a Christmas present, but them coincidenticslly becoming one).

Then they each have 2 medim present each (e.g an art set or something), a small present each + a 'movie set' (a pair of slippers, pyjamas and DVD, and a small bag of sweets) each and stockings. So 7 packages each + stockings, + shared present.
