Do you have a birthday close to say Christmas and sometimes get shorted on gifts? how about your kids?

Or how do you handle it if it is one of your kids? How do you decide which gift to give on which day?

It takes planning, but everyone deserves a separate birthday. His birthday was 2 days before Christmas and we worked hard to make sure he felt his birthday was separate from Christmas, including wrapping his presents in birthday paper instead of Christmas paper.

What's hardest is all them have close to holiday birthdays... Christmas, Thanksgiving and Halloween.

They're not too close to Christmas. Close, but not too close

My husband is Dec. 10th, my Son is Dec. 21st, and I have another Son's birthday January 9th. 

We treat it like a birthday, just like everyone elses...everyone gets the same budget, their choice of cake or dessert, their choice of dinner..  My Son who has a birthday Dec. 21st, LOVES Christmas, and ALWAYS requests a cake that is somehow decorated christmas, and wants his gifts wrapped in Christmas wrap.  He says he loves that his birthday is close to christmas because it's his favorite holiday.
