So far we haven't, but this year will only be her second Christmas :) I am planning on wrapping up some normal stuff, just so she has more to rip into. Maybe some new toothbrushes and bubble bath, definitely some clothes, and books. We might get some little toys too. But we're trying to save as much money as possible so we can move next year, so there won't be much.

Yes but I also get them what they want as well.  They know they always get a new pair of pajamas on Christmas Eve (need) but they get all of the toys and other things they want on Xmas day.

Usually just toothbrushes and pjs. Otherwise it's fun stuff.

Yes, I think kids need to realize the understand the value of money, age-appropriate (of course).  I buy the kids something they want, something they need and something unexpected  I have done this with my nieces and nephews for years!

Yup..They get a few toys too, but its usually things they need, like my oldest needs a new jacket and back pack, my 3 year old needs some new shoes and my 2 year old has a cast on her back, so none of her clothes fit and she LOVES wearing dresses so we will be trying to find her a few new dresses to wear...
