Do you envy moms who get their children 20 or more Christmas gifts per child?

No I find it very over the top. If kids have everything they want they won't learn to value what they have.

No. We can afford to do so but choose not to.

No. It's too much. I could easily buy my kids that much stuff, but I won't. Grandparents always go overboard anyway.

Nah. Well maybe I'm a little envious that they can? I dunno. I'm not really struggling but I have to prioritize my money and gifts aren't high on the list so by the time I get down to that there's not much left. Either way I know I'm making the ricght decisions for me and my family so I'm just happy they can do that.

No! My kids don't need much to make them happy.
My kids know that christmas isn't about the presents, and that it's about the time spent with family.

Nope. They don't need a ton of toys. They get bored of then quickly anyway.

Nope...we did it for years and decided to go to the 4 gifts-want, need, wear, read, a stocking and we do pjs on CE.

No. They are usually crap gifts that won't be played with in 2 days or at all. 

We value quality over quantity in our house. We also prefer to give experiences so that takes up a good bit of our budget.

This year our kids will get 4 gifts (from us, dh's parents, my dad and my aunt), a stocking with little things, a joint Santa gifts (games - 3) and a trip to Great Wolf Lodge. They will be thrilled.

No, I think people do what's right for their own homes
