I think you need to tell your mother that if she wants to get your son gifts, that would be wonderful, but you are done shopping.

6 gifts is plenty. Tell your mom to buy more if she thinks he needs it

Then tell her that you are done having this conversation with her.

Quoting Jenningsmommy: I did tell he that she said "if you pay me back)

Tell her that how many presents your son gets is none of her concern.

I think it's fine. Ignore your mother.

6 is perfectly fine. Honestly I've done a BIG Christmas for my kids in the past. I regretted it so much. The kids get overwhelmed & are melting down by the end of the day. I don't think they enjoy the gifts as much either.

That's fine. DS is 6 years old and this year he's getting a fair amount of stuff but that's because this is the first year we can afford it. I think that's fine what you've gotten him.

Technically....he doesn't "need" gifts. He will survive w/o any. I think what you got him is fine. Your mother needs to butt out.
