How many gifts do you give your children age 6 or 7??

I'm curious how many gifts are given to your children from Santa?? I tend to buy a lot and did and now rethinking about returning half her gifts. So, I'm curious how many gifts are given by Santa? I got her gifts from myself this year.

  • It varies from year to year. This year they each got 6 gifts.

  • I kept it at 2 or three for my son. Something from Santa plus the stocking, then what we gave him.

  • We only have our son who is 3 ... I bought too many this year.. the last 2 years we actually only put money in his savings account because he didn't care about presents so we kind of went over board this year.. next year we plan to do 2 from each

  • I think that the amount of gifts one gets from santa depends on your financial situation, however I think that 2 or 3 is plenty and then the little ones that are in the stocking. The more presents you give your child from santa the more chances you will have of them questioning if Santa is real because they already at that age hear stories and if there friends only get 1 or 2 presents they why do they get so many more and how will her be able to carry all of them or make them all in time for all the children he visits.

  • I thought I would add that 1/2 of what my son is getting was either a) on clearance or b) From the dollar alley at Target!

  • Thank you for your comments. I ordered a lot this year as the following years. I just got out of debit and put myself back in. I've decided to return and just give her a few presents and return the rest. Same goes with my husbands gifts. Thank you for helping me decided. It's been eating at me for the last couple of days.

    Best regards,
