Toobreathless - obscene? Hardly. It's nothing to do with you actually - no-one is asking you to pass comment and to do so is mean. Great Christmas spirit.

I have two dd's who are 15 months and 3 years old. I've bought them the ELC mansion doll house to share (I know my 15 month old is a bit little but I thought if I say now it's for both of them then it should save some arguments when dd2 gets bigger).

DD1 also has a bike, le toy van car, caravan and family, leappad game, play doh, toy story box set and a few other little bits and pieces.

DD2 has the happyland village, school bus and play mat / box, an aqua draw, a big peppa pig playset that her big sister picked for her, a doll and some books and puzzles.

We have a family game for everyone to share and they were getting onesies but they had those early as they were away to camp and the onesies were the cosiest pjs available.

They are getting a new TV for the playroom curtesy of my Mum and my Nectar points - rest of the family will send cheques/vouchers.

So, thoroughly spoiled but they are very good boys and we don't spend on them through the year other than Birthdays and a new book for good school reports etc.

I don't think I have paid full price for anything between using vouchers/quidco etc and I raised over £500 on ebay selling of things - mainly their old clothes/jackets/boots.

is this too much???? i didnt go mad last year, and he wasnt interested in anything apart from the boxes anyway. But the way i think of it is, he has no concept of the value of money yet, so its ok to just get him something that he'll really like? hes a total domestic godess bless his heart so hes gunna be thrilled :D

Calm down. Comment clearly says 'to me that is obscene' clearly it's not to you (or the OP)

I suspect posting on this thread could be deemed as 'inviting people to comment.'

My Xmas spirit is alive and well thank you, I hope you have a very, merry weekend.

toobreathless Fri 07-Dec-12 13:33:55

pinkycheesy your kids presents look amazing and love the idea of mini individual 3 day breaks with them.
