My children get underwear (really! it is a wrapped gift under the tree), pjs, books,  something that they asked for- such as a video game, CD.

I only have one still at home. The older ones are getting a stocking full of things they like as in perfume, deodorants, body wash, razors, candy, things like that. They love the stockings! Then some clothes. Thats it. 

My 16 yr. old is getting a tablet, shoes, clothes, hair stuff, things like that.

I put movie passes in each stocking every year....my kids know to expect that since we all go to the movies on Christmas day.  Then it's usually a video of somesort that I know that child will like.  I could spend a fortune on stocking stuffers...especially since I bought new stocking last year and they are way bigger than the ones we had in years past. lol

I usualy go with PJs and a movie with my girls, Roo gets whatever clothing item he needs most and a toy, Michael usualy gets a gift card and a shirt. 

This year the girls are getting a package of socks, and Roo is getting a set of 3 knock off brand Lego robots. I haven't gotten Michael anything yet but whatever it is will cost around $10 (my limit for this years budget). I know the Rehab center that serves Roo will probably get him a new coat and boots, they called and asked for his sizes. We will not be doing stockings this year but I like to put things like hair ties, CDs, and stuff in them for the girls and matchbox cars and army men in Roo's.

This year, because the three of us are going  to Mexico for Christmas, the trip is our present.   When we go down there, I take along three dollar store stockings, and we bring a few small items, or pick up little things in Zihuatanejo to put in them.  None of us needs anything, so it is just about the experience.

Joey got a G-shock watch, since he was leaving for basic he needed one that would survive. He also got a set of luggage. A movie and cd.

Jesse got a tv, wireless for his XBOX and a set of headphones.

Everything was on sale and I spend the same amount on each.
