What are your kids asking for this year for Christmas?

Mine are 5 and 7, and haven't really asked for anything specific. I have no idea what to get them without spending a fortune.

  • heather, mine are the reverse, b 7 g 5 lol
    my son is loving all the star wars stuff, esp the storm trooper helmet and blaster (its a nerf thing).
    my friends dd who jsut turned 8 got mp3 player, art supplies, and doggie stuff for her bday last week. I would say art supplies are always good.
    we are spending less on Christmas every year bc we found a bazillion presents is just too much. it puts too much emphasis on material things, and after so many gifts the kids are tired of opening stuff lol. that was our epiphany when they kids said ANOTHER ONE? oh no. lol
    now we keep it to maybe 3-4 santa gifts and 1 from us and keep it under $150 per kid.

  • The less I spend the happier he is. I could buy him a roll of aluminum foil and he would be totally excited. If I bought him an expensive toy he will do what he always does. Put it away in the toy box.

    I don't know what I am getting him for Christmas either. He is almost five and I am at a loss. I would look like a stingy step mom if I bought him the stuff that he would be really excited over.

  • My 10 year old wants a cell phone, but he's not getting one! The rest of them haven't mentioned anything yet, even when I asked what they wanted!! We are broke this year, so that might be a good thing!

  • My five year old wants a "spying scope" so she can see the planets, and a big book on space. shes gonna be an astronaut. my others kids haven't asked for anything in particular, but we will get them a FEW things.  My 5 & 4 yr old will maybe get bikes.  don't know what to get the baby...what do 18 month old boys like??

  • Well my 21 year old asked me for a I touch phone. Told him he can buy it himself. He will probably get clothes or money from us. The 15 year old would like a xbox 360, laptop, sp3, new cell phone, clothes, money. They are not too picky and we at least try to get them one really special present and then smaller things and I always make them a stocking full of stuff.
