I'm a single mom. So far I've gotten my son an Xbox with kinect and a few games, a laser tag set, a Minecraft hoodie, and a chocolate making kit. I'm not quite done yet, though. I'm thinking of getting him a nerf gun and there's some spy gear stuff and a crayola thing he wants. And I think I'll make him a blanket. We'll see, there's still time:) I am planning to spoil him because he has been great and flexible and understanding with some craziness in life.

I am all of the above, I don't have a job. I living on saving basically, well sorta of till I find another job.

My daughter is got/getting little things like coloring books, handwriting books, a doll, hopefully a doll stroller, some clothing. That's it really. I don't have the money to go all out.

I'm 19 and I have a 17 month old son and my fiance and I have gotten him over $200 worth of stuff. I don't know why people are taking offense to this question though.. young moms and single moms and lower income families do generally have a harder time with being able to spend a lot of money rather than wealthier people..

I agree, I mean its not everyone but some people who are single, and young cant afford it.

Me for example, I hsve to do smaller things and get her more of it. So she can have those special presents.

Sadly I have no money at all to get my newborn anything for Xmas, We have already spent 3,000 on everything she needs. Now we are just waiting for her arrival... I'm sure our family members are going to spoil her with gifts

I'm young and DF doesn't make a ton of money but since DS is only gonna be 5 months he doesn't need many more toys anyway. I got him clothes and were getting a high chair and foam mat, an I'm making him a couple blankets and paying a friend of mine to make a reindeer hat! He won't even really know what's going on so most of the stuff is practical, like bigger clothes he'll grow into.
