We do a stocking frm Santa - although it's not massive - every year the kids get new bathers from santa (they need them anyway, so I may as well avoid spending more than I need on pressies) and they usually get a DVD/video, some stationery things and a couple of little bits and pieces - stocking usually comes to about $20-$30 plus bathers.
Then they get one main pressie from Santa - this year dane's getting an RC (Toy story) that cost me $35, and Lydia's getting a $10 sketch slate - you know magnetic things they draw on.
Then they each get a pressie from Andrew and I - usually anywhere between $50 - $75, thinking that this year I might do a combined pressie for them and get swings for the backyard.
Plus a pressie from each other - again normally about $20 - $30
Lydia's birthday is 5 days after Christmas so I can't overspend cos my kids get spoiled rotten for their Birthdays (usually up to $200
), and I don't want Lydia to miss out just cos hers falls so close to Christmas
I've already Layby'd or bought everything. Have even started wrapping so that if the kids do come across them - (by climbing up to the top of my closet hehehe) they still wont know what's inside.
