  • of course I buy for them.... We usually do alot of christmas gifts... right now we are up to 23 for my 2 year old son and 17 for my 4 year old daughter, but I still have a couple of shopping trips left ( after we get paid again) .... I usually try to get an even number of gifts for them .... probably close to 30 each

  • I have a 13, 11 and 9 year old. They get gifts for Christmas every year. I love shopping for things they want and seeing their faces when they open it. I think it is the best part of the holiday. This year I am not sure how many gifts they are getting because for one they want really expensive things and for two we might get thema dog, so we will just have to wait and see. One thing I do every year is I get them socks, underwear and things like that. that way they have a few more presents and they are things that they need.

  • You bet! Both my hubs and I buy Christmas presents for our 3 kids. As for the # of gifts-- it varies-- depending on what the child wants and how much it costs. This year my oldest will have just a few things to open (he wanted mostly video games) while the youngest will have a lot to open. We do try to spend about the same amount on each child.

  • Absolutely! My 4 year old son is an only child and I'm a single mom, so I tend to go a bit overboard at Christmas. A lot of toys, but nothing too overpriced.

  • I will get them 1 big gift each and clothes cause they need them.Because they are girls ill get them perfume sets,and small jewelry and makeup.Also i look for deals on pjs and slippers too.They are both really into babydolls so i will get them something to do with that.Also they want the new pillow buddy's,but im holding out for a deal!! So mabey somewhere between 6 to 8 gifts or 8 to 10.Ill see how it goes.Every year i try a little bit more to teach us all the true meaning of xmas!
