I can't wait until Christmas, he's going to love it. What big gifts did you buy for your kids?

I bought my 13 year old an iPad mini. His iPod got stolen and so I am replacing it with a mini. I bought myself the full size iPad with wireless keyboard, wireless printer that I can use to print from laptops, iPods, iPhones, and iPads, a Smart Cover and an iTunes gift card. I am using mine for school.

Thank you! I wasn't even going to address her negative comment. I feel like I'm behind times, by just now getting him an iPad lol.


Quoting CreziaMommyTo2:

maybe for you, my 3 & 5 year old have iPads and iPods, my 5 year old has a laptop and my 3 year old just asked for one.  

we were going to get the them the mini's as their big gifts, but my MIL said she wanted to get them a Fire.  so we arent going to upgrade their iPads since they are getting a new tablet anyway...

i know plenty of 3-8 year olds with their OWN ipads... its the world we live in....

Quoting Twisted.Jester:

I find posts like this to be attention whoring. I make good money.... I don't need to title a post about buying my 12 year old an iPad. Which I think is a ridiculous waste if money.

It's the world you choose to live in. My kids are teens and if they want smartphones they pay for them on their own. I may have the only children on the planet who realize you don't get expensive shit just for breathing and that it's earned through them earning money through work, chores, or graded depending on their ages.

It's a choice "the world" doesn't determine the values I instill in my children. I do.

Ohhh I just got mine for school. If he is using it for school work get the Smart Cover and wireless keyboard. Apple website also has a printer that is 100 that you can print from iPad, iPod, iPhone, or a laptop.

I was going to get him a laptop, but decided on the iPad, he's homeschooled so he needed something.



He's wanting a new gun, but not this year, I'm getting a new gun lol.




Quoting Anonymous:

We got my seven year old a new computer has the big gift from Santa





And a new mossy oak BB gun from us as the big gift








And his grandfather is buying the first "real" gun! A 410! Granddad normally waits until they are older for the guns but he's worried about his health so he wanted to go ahead and get it! Thank god my son understands gun safety!

My daughter is getting an iPad and my son is getting an iPod. They asked for more electronics this year over toys.
