Do you and you DH/SO agree? Christmas post.

My dh and I can never agree on what to get the kids for Christmas. We don't get them much (we have 3) we get them usually 3-4 things, a pair of pajamas or an outfit then something for all of them from "santa". This literally keeps us from shopping till last minute! So far we have finally agreed on getting them 2 cartridges for the V-tech eReader my dad got them, a pair of pjs each and 3 board games from santa. We are now having problems deciding on either a bean bag chair or a saucer chair for them. Does anyone else have problems being on the same page for the kids or are we the only ones?

*Before anyone gets on me "it's not about presents" we know that which is why we don't get them much and do a lot more than just presents, we agree on everything else about Christmas from the dinner we do to going to mass, this is the only thing we DON'T agree on!*

I always just bought them what I wanted. Something huge, we usually discuss..then get it.

We only have one child all we do is discuss what one item she wants the most this year it was deciding between a Dalek plushie or the Kitty from Big Bang Theory.

We don't really discuss it. I shop, I wrap, and DH is as surprised as the kids on Christmas morning. My DH's opinion on anything that has to be purchased is "Whatever you think is fine" because he wants no part in shopping.

We shop together. Now that our daughter is old enough to tell us what she wants, that's what she gets, and we do a combination for our son. He also gets them each a gift that he picked out special.
