They'll all get some new clothes, and whatever books that won't fit in the stockings, too I might have accidentally bought everything The Book People stock grin

Good grief... mine get their stockings and then one present each. They're both getting roller-boots this year. I can't decide if this thread makes me think that I'm incredibly mean, or that the whole world's gone mad.

Ds1 (5) is getting a remote control helicopter and a solar system model thing

Ds2 (nearly 3) has a kitchen and a book.

We've had a shit year this year though, and I wanted to get him something a bit better, so he'll be getting a coffee machine (one of the pod ones) and some Boss EDT. He's been entering every raffle where a coffee machine is a possible prize all year, so I hope he'll be pleased!
