First year ever I have bought in advance - farm set for DS, some perfume for DD (that I had to get from America, FGS) a DVD for DH and a construction thing for DSS.

Just want to spread the cost out a bit and take advantage of deals etc.

I have bought for:

Godson

Have planned for most, but bought

That is it so far blush.
I have 4 dc's too, and ds1's birthday is 4 days before Christmas so really need to get my arse into gear. Ds2 is nearly done though - some figures and books and thats it (except stockings.
Trouble is it is all the stuff i have not bought yet that is expensive!

I've bought books for DH, DS and DD and some trinkets for DD which I'm going to put in a little bag for her.

I've chosen presents for DS (a trampoline) and DD (a pushchair and a charm for her bracelet) but haven't bought them yet.

I've bought a book for DH's niece. That's it.

So far I have bought a bike for DD1 which was half price and have bought DS, DD1 and DD2 a book/annual each as well as a couple of little stocking fillers.

Have also bought for my mum, sister in law and sister.

Have to plan ahead as have 5 birthdays to buy for between now and Christmas.

Sandy22 Thu 01-Oct-09 18:51:43

Has anyone ever bought the filled stockings for £14.99 from Hawkins Bazaar?

Lilyloo Thu 01-Oct-09 19:31:12

ooh Sandy what are they ?

Sandy22 Thu 01-Oct-09 20:30:50

They are on the hawkins bazaar website - they have one for age 8+ and one for 14+ filled with toys but doesn't say exactly what - just wondered if anyone had bought one previously and if they were worth the money.

This time last year I had bought 2 big sets of Playmobil for ds (plane and airport) and when I asked him a bit later on what he wanted there was no mention of Playmobil! Luckily, I sold them on ebay for what I paid for them so I didn't lose anything but it did cause a fair bit of stress!

He's having a bike for Christmas. I know which one I want to get, I'm just waiting to find one with a bit of money off!!

I've bought some collectable brooches for my sisters and Mum. I think they're fabulous but my Aunt thinks they won't like them hmm. Oh well, if they don't like them I'll keep them for myself!!

Also, bought ds a mini toolkit and going to get my BIL to keep any bits of wood so he can do a bit of hammering Christmas afternoon. He's asked for Guitar Hero from FC which I ordered but I've been sent the wrong one so waiting for a reply to my emails.

I have also ordered lots of stocking-filler type presents to give as token gifts for my God-children and current/ex-mindees.

My plan is to make so foody presents for everyone else. The only problem is I'm horribly dis-organised and can't cook very well!!! grin

The Tesco half price toy sale is great.

I just got a giant peppa pig soft toy and a giant George one for DD, both down from £20 to £10. She loves her 2 mini ones, so she'll love the huge ones!

and a scooter and wooden train set for DS.

Now I just need stocking fillers and the DC are done.
