How much are you going to spend at christmas?

Nov 8th, 2006, 19:03 PM   #1
 
My baby will only be just 3 months at christmas, i dont want to go ott with the presents because hes way to young to understand what christmas is! I will most likely buy toys of different age ranges so he has things throughout the year,

so ladies my question is
How old was your baby at his/hers 1st christmas?
How much roughly do you think you spent?

Ive only spent 100 on toys and 100 into Kaidens trust fund, My OH has another son who was given everything and hes a very selfish wee guy even though hes 10 now, even though we have a bit of cash, im gonna make sure he isnt spoilt, hes the 1st grandchild too so the house will be over flowing with toys. I think Christmas is a bit over commercialised nowdays. XkelX

Lydia was exactly 3 months at Christmas last year.

This is what we bought her
link

it says it's 29.99 reduced from 39.99 - I think it was 39.99 when we bought her it, but don't quote me on that, it could have been the cheaper price.

ETA: I have absolutely no idea why the fook they made the link to that argos page so retardedly long - I'm sorry it's screwed the page up!

We are also going to take it easy this year and just get a light show for the ceiling ogf the nursery. My brother ahs already been down the Disney Store and spent 150 on her already! She is going to be so spoilt her whole life I don't think it matters what we buy her this Xmas

D was a week old last time and we hadn't got him anything
This year we're spending 50pound odd probably, as it's his brithday just before and he'll get loads then too. We'd run out of stuff to by!
I don't think they need to have alot spent on them at this young age, save it for when they are 15 and want the lastest games console which costs 300+

Thea has already got lots of presents waiting for her in England that we will collect when we go back for a visit at the begining of December.
We have seen a few bits and pieces we are going to get her but we wont be spending a great deal.
