Most years i have counted between 80 - 100 presents into her giant sack and socking actually some dont fit so lie on the floor next to it and thats just from santa she usually gets a few from me, 1 big and a couple of smaller gifts. I buy all year and dont realise until it comes to wrapping how much i have actually bought!

there is no too much or too little, it all depends on price/value

Surely you buy what you can afford and what the child needs, no minimum or maximum

My kids would batter your kids!!





































Merry Christmas though :)

Mine have a bike as a main present and will have about 10 smaller presents each, costing from £2-£20.
#15
As long as you get your kids what they ask for then you can't give them anymore, regardless of quantity.

Mine has a set budget and he writes a list . How many he gets depends on the cost . I don't exceed the budget but I give him a stocking full of the usual tat on top of that

About 300-350 presents per child I think is reasonable.

My kids never have the same amount of presents as my son is 15 and like designer wear so 1 tshirt has cost me £55 whereas my daughter is 7 and I have got her 6/7 presents for the same amount! My sons had more spent on him but my daughter has more presents! Never a competition though. Just get what I think will make them happy on the day and is in budget!!

My kids are too far in debt now, I mean my eldest boy is on his 15th Christmas, and he hasnt even started to repay the 1st one.. so no more until the Court Enforcement Officers recover at least 50%

Think of it more as a long term loan. I've already started explaining to my kids what I expect from them when I retire. To be fair I think one is going to need to be boss of GSK and the other the new Richard Branson to be able to pay for it all, but that's how compound interest works :)
#25
I don't know, I haven't counted. I have a set budget that gets spent and that's it, it could be 2 presents or 20, i'm not buying tat just so they can open X amount of presents (_;)

totally agree, we set a budget for each child, one wants a phone ...... so will also get a couple of little bits and bobs smelly etc, the other will have lots of smaller gifts
#27
my youngest likes the paper gliders, I bought him 24 for £2.50 does that count :)

we just set a budget and in recent years reduced this as well, reality is kids don't need lots of presents, they don't play with everything they get and we found that if we bought them something it might be played with a few time so we reduced it and they don't see it as anything different. Ours are also quite good and get money from grandparents and save it.

And here's me realising that the flamedeer are no more, no wonder I haven't caught any today :( assumed it would be on until Christmas

I showed my Mum this thread earlier today (some of the comments cracked her up) and she said she always aimed for 10 stocking presents, but they would always be small. Like a fun size bag of Malteasers or felt pens or something.

I didn't know Christmas had a formula. Thanks for ruining the magic OP :(

We have 4 kids but youngest is only 4 months so just a few bits for him mainly so the others know he is a part of Xmas too. Each of the other 3 have 17 each, mixture between big and small gifts but all adding up to £150 each plus a merlin pass each which will be bought in the sale just after Xmas. With the passes it seems like a lot, around £250 per child but we choose to spoil them only on their birthdays and Xmas so why not. Plus the passes are obviously valid all through the year so save us so much over holidays and long weekends.

I agree with others though, it is not about how much you spend, or how many gifts you buy. Kids won't always remember the toys they receive but they will remember the time they spend with friends and family.

Plus obviously the kids will have gifts from family and close friends.

As a kid i always resented the sock idea as i wanted big presents and santa only gave me presents that could fit in the sock. So dissappointing :(

I always wondered why Santa gave me felt pens, but gave all the naughty kids at school Sega Megadrives. Under tree presents from parents where the better ones, the fat mans sock presents were the cheap ones.

I didnt like santa much as a kid as he always gave me a fruit and a toy car. But when he gets to me friends house further down the street he gave them like 10 presents which were hundreds of pounds.

I asked my mum why this was the case and she said it was because we lived at the end of the street so when santa got to us, he had ran out of presents. I was so gutted to hear this :(
