  • My DD is getting a trampoline as her main gift, and then a few smaller things. She is in gymnastics and has been begging us for a trampoline since. We got it at WalMart's Black Friday for $165. She will probably get a movie, some books, some Ariel or Tinkerbell stuff, little things like that.

  • We can't afford gifts this year. We had to go on food stamps so we bought them a few food treats that we normally don't splurge on. Things like beef jerky and dried cherries. Things they love.

  • my 2 and 3 year olds are getting pillow pets, singamajigs, and RC strawberry shortcake cars. my 3 year old is getting a princess "learning" phone and my 2 year old is getting a wooden puzzle set. then books for the both of them... we don't really set a budget, we just make sure that they have an even amount of gifts to open, and that we are careful to buy for both when i know that they both want something...
    this year we spent just about $50 on each of them.

  • I only spend $75 on each child (I have 2) and $50 on a couple presents to "share" of $200 on Christmas ($$ is really tight here). My 3 (almost 4 year old in February) is getting a new doll (baby alive), playdoh, washable markers/crayons, tons of coloring paper, and play "dress-up" clothes.

  • I have an almost 3 year old boy, but some of the stuff would work for a girl. We got him a Strider balance (no pedals) bike, helmet, Criss Cross Crash from Hotwheels, some Lauri puzzles, Richard Scarry books, and a Playmobil ambulance and firetruck. Also, PJ's work for everyone :)
