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

Posted by   + Show Post

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:)

You buy your kids whatever you want. There are no rules or "too excessive" toys.

Yeah.. I'm thinking you're not aware of what a "big" gift is to most of us.

You can give them all she will be fine

Who made the "one big present" rule? What's considered a "big present". Just give them all to her, lol.

A bed is a need. Sure you can give it for a gift but I wouldn't count it. Do you feel you went overboard?

I dont think those are too big. The bed is a need and I would even consider that a gift lol. The other two arent that excessive. My son got his cozy coupe on a Monday for no reason. HA
