How many presents (poll)

So how many presents are you having LO unwrap for his her birthday?[Poll]

Re: How many presents (poll)

  • I do one gift for birthdays and they get an activity/experience the day of their actual birthday.  For DD2's birthday I got her the Little People Princess Castle and we took her to the aquarium.

    We're doing the same. She'll get one gift from us, and we're also going to the zoo on her birthday, weather permitting.

  • We also did an experience for her birthday. We went to Build a Bear and she picked out a bear. No outfits or sounds and it cost us 15 bucks or so. I plan on spending much more for Christmas (want, need, wear, read gifts). We had fun as a family. DD was a bit young to appreciate the experience and was a little scared of the fluff machine (similar to our vacuum noise which she doesn't like), but we started a tradition. :-) She got so many presents from friends and family; she didn't need more.

  • I didn't get her anything since I spent enough money on her party. She got PLENTY of gifts from family/friends and she will never know. In the future I will get her a few gifts and spend less on her party.

  • DD got one present from us (her parents) and a book from her brother.  Then the rest of the family gifts. Cost was $35 plus $200+ for party.

    For Christmas, we'll have 4-5 things from santa plus a stocking.  We'll probably wrap a big box of diapers too so the pile looks similar to her 5yr old brother's.  Cost will probably be around $100-$125.

  • We didn't have a party so there were only presents from us (I think 5? - all pretty small stuff) and the grandparents.  (And both sets of grandparents were pretty restrained, too - maybe 3 or 4 presents each.)   I'd eventually like to transition to more celebrating with experiences than presents.  Part of the reason I wrapped up so many things for her is b/c I thought she would have fun unwrapping them.  Nope.  Oh well.
