How often do you buy your child gifts (little or big) during the year?

I guess what I'm asking is do you wait for birthday's or Christmas to do most of your gift giving or do you ofter buy little things when you're at the store for your child all through the year?

  • I pick up stuff when there's sales. some ends up in the birthday xmas box some is for him. also he earn treats and rewards for doing all his chores or being extra good. finishing a work book. or if he has money he gets things. xmas and birthday are more of a celebration in our house and aren't really a big gift holidays actually.

  • I often buy little things throughout the year. And by little I mean like a hotwheels car, a ball, or a few books or something. The bigger stuff is for Christmas and birthdays.

  • I'm with jessicarae on this one... It seems like I'm constantly buying him little things, but the big presents are for his birthday or for Christmas...

  • I buy little things and give them like a magazine or a card. Bigger things get saved for bigger occasions.
