So far ds (3.4) has got:

Cherry the bloody cat (not its official name)
Large orchard toys jigsaw
Fireman Sam rescue village playset - against better judgement but was half price at Argos.
Orchard toys game
Imaginext batmobile
Small hotwheels set
Play doh dentist set
Hama beads set
An elc nuts and bolts car

And his stocking stuff. Will probably get him a few books too. He wants the imaginext batcave but that might have to wait for his birthday now. Cherry the cat is top of his list. I managed to get it a bit cheaper on amazon.

I've got everything but the chocolate coins!

I had been buying bargains as and when I spotted them thinking I'd just get a few bits early but I somehow managed to buy everything.

musttidyupmusttidyup Sun 07-Oct-12 22:01:02

onlyhappy i got the batcave on amazon recently for £38 for ds1.
Play doh dentist set looks fun -was thinking for ds2. (nearly 4) but will it be a play-once-then-gather-dust toy?
Ds2 bday is 28th dec so struggling with what to get him.... Any ideas gratefully received.

musttidyupmusttidyup Sun 07-Oct-12 22:03:48

So far for DSS, 8, we've got:

Ultimate Band Wii game (£1.25 on amazon?!)
Super Scribblenauts DS game (£4.40 on amazon)
inflatable globe
Ninjago Lego kit

Going to get him some slippers, dressing gown and a Diry of a Wimpy Kid board game, then little bits for stocking and we'll be done.

He would really like a bike but we live in a flat with no storage and the sheds keep getting broken in to, so he'll have to wait until we have a house. Also, he got a scooter for his bday which he "really realy" wanted and yet rarely uses.

Nothing yet. And its her birthday in December too. Keeping it v light this year though - mainly "experience" gifts like entrance into the zoo, cinema tickets etc. Need to work out how Santa can arrange these things when not all the places do gift vouchers, and how he will write them in a calendar...(hoping one outing a month, and stuff we might poss have done anyway) Shes 10 this December so this will be her last santa year.

InMySpareTime Mon 08-Oct-12 08:28:04

I'm feeling a bit stingy now with my bargain Christmas, but last year they were unreasonably pleased with pencil cases, and a bit non-plussed by the second hand Wii confused.
