I would not even try to compete. We go through the same thing with my hubby's son and we just pay the child support. We may buy one or two inexpensive gifts to put under our tree for him but we do not buy lots of gifts on top of paying child support. The economy is bad and we just can not afford it and I think when a child says " I already have that" than he is not hurting for anything and all he needs is daddy's love.
