ok, so hubby doesn't want to get our dd anything for christmas, because "what's the point in opening her gifts when we know what they already are", AND "we have people who are gonna buy her stuff that we're not gonna know about",...i feel like we should be getting her stuff, even if we know what it is just to see her smile about it when we get excited about it instead of her just sitting there watching us and then being in the car where we cant really do anything with her.

BTW my dd is going to be 6 mos on the 2nd of Dec.

Ladies, what are you opinions??!!!

  • *shrug* I daughter is due sometime next month and we're not getting her anything for Christmas. Provided that she's actually born by Christmas Day, she's not going to know or care what Christmas is until at least next year...and even next year when she's a year old she won't care about what Christmas is. With your daughter being so young, Christmas is still a little more for you adults than it is for her right now. She'll be happy either way you go.

  • You buy the stuff for your daughter, and then your husband won't know what it is LOL

    At 6 months, she really won't be all that into it, so I would just go with a few small things.

  • I would mainly get things that she needs, and maybe a special first Christmas keepsake, but I have to agree mainly w/ your DH, no need in spending much when she has no clue what's going on.

  • My son was only 4 months when Christmas came for him and I bought him things. I bought him toys, clothes, and necessities. I remember also getting him things that he could use ALL year. Some stuff he could not use right away but he grew into them. I just could not have imagined not getting him something.

  • I just bought and gave it to my kids at that wrapping needed. No special day needed either

  • I would still get them things. Toys are just starting to become important at this age. PLUS it's an excuse to buy clothes for them (which they are always in need of with how fast they grow).

  • My daughter will be 9 months on Christmas Day and we bought her tons of presents. Most of which she can/will grow into. It's not about how much you spend... it's the thought that counts.
