Hey just wondering how many presents you get you children at Christmas?

I usually splash out but now baby number 3 is here I just can't do it x

it depends. usually, the kids get one big present (eg: a scooter, a tablet) and then some small ones (board games, magic tricks, stuff like that) and then a stocking (pound land toys, sweets, an orange). it may be worth having a scout around on gumtree, ebay or www.oxfam.org.uk/shop as there are usually some great bargins on there. one year we got dd a micro scooter from a seller on ebay, in such good condition but only a fraction of the price. all the best!

no problem. off topic, but do you do an elf on the shelf? it makes xmas really special, especially if you are cutting down on gift numbers x

I asked a question regarding Christmas presents. Not what month we are currently in. If you didn't want to answer my question then don't bother writing anything at all

Christmas is fast approaching! I usually give 1-2 presents for my kids and a stocking full of candies and chocolates. They really appreciate it and that's what really matters.

Depends. When they were little, the gifts were cheaper so they had a few. Now they're older they want expensive things so they only get 1-2 presents! Quality over quantity. Santa brings them a lindt chocolate Santa and activity.
