I wrapped my presents today for my dd 2 and 9. There looks loads. Spent about 150 each ( plus about 40 each on ocelot he's with me free matalan vouchers / cheers mumsnet)! . I have no idea what if this is normal or excessive?

Hi, I don't think you should worry about whether the amount of presents are normal or excessive. Just get what is right for you.

You will get some MNters saying they gave a satsuma, a shiny penny and a jigsaw and others that they are spending the whole of Christmas in the Maldives.

Merry Christmas fsmile I'm sure your DC will love their presents

That's my problem too.
How do you make five expensive presents look like a lot? Leave the price tags on?
Wish I'd gone to pound land and spent £200 instead.

How many are there each? The 9 yo will be better equppied than the 2yo to appreciate and enjoy a larger quantity of presents. Could you possibly hold some back for the 2yo?
