I don't know.

DS's birthday is 22nd November and really can't think properly about Christmas until after that.

DD (5) is getting a large Hello Kitty that was on offer in Tescos recently. Have got some stocking things. They will both get an annual. And a satsuma. She says she wants Hello Kitty things and a toy cat that looks like one she left on a bus. And maybe some playmobil.

DS (nearly 7) I am not sure about. He would like an umbrella grin. He is about to get lovely Lego for his birthday so should be content for a while.

BarbieLovesKen Fri 12-Nov-10 21:08:46

My God, you are all very organised!!!.

DD (5) will be getting "making things", she loves craft sets etc so am going to buy her a few little sets where she can make ornaments, chocolate, jewellery, cards etc..

DS (who will be 11 months) ah, dont know.

BarbieLovesKen Fri 12-Nov-10 21:09:16

I'll get her a ds game too actually.

Wheelybug Fri 12-Nov-10 21:21:14

DD1 (5.11) will be getting - dsi (v. much against our better judgement but promised she could have one 'when she was 6' from the age of 4, which she will be in January.
Also, an annual, box set of books, a HSM3 dance mat (which incidently only cost me £2)
and another present (probably a game for the ds).

DD2 (21 months) - happy land farm and playmat, talking upsy daisy, annual, box set of books, easy painters

DD1 will give DD2 the free quad bike set that comes with the happyland farm and DD2 will give DD1 the free game that came with the DSi grin

Both will then have a new outfit for christmas day, PJs and stocking stuff.

ForMashGetSmash I am intrigued as to the nature of 'random crap' please elaborate

ForMashGetSmash Sat 13-Nov-10 08:58:36

Lol...oh you know Freudian, felt tip pens, colouring books, fun jewelry...soapy sets and slippers!

NoahAndTheWhale Sat 13-Nov-10 09:01:38

There will be much random crap here grin

People with long lists, is this presents just from you or does it include presents from relations as well?

FreudianSlimmery Sat 13-Nov-10 09:49:23

Well my list (apart from the camera and car transporter) is only what we are getting them - they will get a few other bits and bobs from my DSDs and other relatives.

domesticsluttery Sat 13-Nov-10 12:35:43

Does mine count as long list? It was 8 presents each, but only cost about £75 per child which isn't that much by a lot of people's standards. And yes, those 8 presents will be all coming from us.
