I bought DD 3 "big" presents :( is this excessive?

By no means do I think the holidays are about presents. I firmly believe kids should get only ONE big present but I couldn't decide.. I got my dd a Minnie Mouse toddler bed(which she asked 4 and has been asking 4 for several mos and actually needs), a kitchen set and a cozy coupe car(to encourage imaginative play). Should I hold out until after the holidays and spread out her presents? I also bought her some small presents like doll accessories etc.


Edit: ok I asked other friends and family and they thought it was excessive which is why I posted this. The negative comments are mind blowing. I came here for advice and people are questioning my parenting. I guess this isn't the place to come for advice. I'll know better next time....



Edit: also the 1st time I posted this it didn't go through so I rewrote it and mistakenly left some info out about having a hard time deciding. Thanks to all the moms with kind words. No idea this post about my indecisiveness would generate so many responses!! Merry Christmas:)

Huh? If you bought them for Christmas she gets them for Christmas. Why buy something for Christmas if you arent going to give it to her. YOU bought it when YOU knew YOUR rule! Wtf

Dude. If you can't make your own decision about presents and when to give them, then you aren't ready to be a parent, period.

They are physically big gifts but really not that expensive. Just give them all to her. I thought this was going to be about presents that were $100+ each.

Who said the rule was ONLY one big present? I guess I missed that rule w/my kids, oops.

Anyway, if YOU aren't comfortable giving all that then done but if YOU want to then do.  Why care what everyone else thinks?

A cheap plastic bed and two toys? Not excessive at all.
