Does Santa bring gifts for mom & dad at your house?

my son is too little to notice this year (I think) but does "Santa" bring gifts to the adults in your house, or just the kids? I am deciding how to do it in my house.

  • Sanat only brought gifts to the kids when they were little. I didn't want them questioning why their friends parents didn't get something from Santa. Too complicated to explain.

  • haha, santa doesn't even give the kids gifts in our house. normally parents don't have santa bring them gifts, cuz "santa only brings children gifts"

  • I actually didnt think about it until now.. because our daughter is only 17months old and last year we didnt get a santa claus, because she was just too young to understand. This year we asked our neighbor-friend to be Santa Claus for our little girl :) But he will only bring gifts to our girl... And i guess thats enough. :)

  • We work up the santa angle in our house but santa only b rings for kids. Big people buy for each other because Santa doesnt bring them toys. So grandma and grandpa might buy for mom and dad, and mom and dad buy for each and grandma and grandpa so we wont be sad because were too old for gifts ;-)

  • i remember a few times that santa brought presents for my was always something she had really wanted but didnt buy b/c it was too expensive. my dad could be romantic when he tried :D. also, santa brought family presents, like board games, video games, movies, etc.

  • Santa brings 1 present to me and my hubby, I actually do it just for fun, not really for the kids cause like you said "they don't really notice". It's just a way to get myself something while I'm shopping with justification. :) heehee

  • We just do stockings for the grown ups. It's the only thing the kids have noticed
