Not a whole lot in my household:

16 yr. old wants only an Ipod and an Ihome(she knows how tight it is around here)

14 yr. old wants Vera Bradley

9yr. wants a Nerf Vulcanator, Xbox 360 Lego Indiana Jones game, Red Rider BB gun, Lego AT-TE, just about anything that has to do with Legos, he wants.

My 3 year old wants everything but this is what he is getting so far. The crayola paint light set. Leapfrog keyboard thing that plugs into the TV. A recliner because I am tired of dragging his car seat in so he has his own seat lol. A crayola bath set. Some cars, thomas stuff, and some other little toys. That is what I have got him so far and I think it will be enough.

Anything with the receipt in the bag, doesn't even have to be wrapped. They are soooo' old they wouldn't even want their ages posted.

My present would be to be with them and I refuse to tell my age. Just old!

What the heck do you get kids that have everything? I have no idea what to get my 10 year old. He has every game system known to man and every game to go with it. My 1 year old will be getting a slide with an attached ball pit. My husband? Who knows. He's just like my son. Has everything there is to buy. Maybe he'll get a new house to put all our crap in.

Me and my husband do not buy for each other on Christmas because we get everything we want throughout the year. We just focus on the children. Maybe MissinMotown you and your husband should start that. Just a suggestion.

In my opinion christmas is for the children. I do not buy for anyone other than the small children in my extended family. If you are 20 or above you get nothing from me. My whole family practices this. We have a big dinner and then watch the children open their presents then sit around talking and laughing while the kids play. I would rather have a time like that anyday over some wrapped up present.

We buy everyone something because there are only 4 kids that come to Christmas. So we can. If there were more we probably couldn't. That's really why the kids are spoiled and have so much is because everyone wants to buy for the kids..

Amy, That is really a good idea.. We get what we want through the year too.(I just got my fish tank and he got another TV) I wanted to start buying things for each other that would benefit the family.. A new fridge would be nice, or those front loader washing machines. So that could work as well. OR Just stop buying crap all year ;)

My Son is going to be a hard one. He has on his Christmas list a Pink Nintendo DS. Now I know he doesn't want this for himself because he got a red one for his birthday. He's hoping someone will buy it for him so he can give it to me I'm betting. Of course he's not telling me that. He keeps telling me he really just wants a PINK DS.. lol.. it's cute.

My 12-year-old daughter submitted a Christmas list with several thousand dollars worth of stuff, including an Ipod Touch, a Verizon cell phone, a Nintendo DS with games, and a bunch of other stuff. I told her that unless there really is a Santa Claus, she needed to write me a more reasonable list. She did, and it's much more practical.

Typically, we purchase 2 - 3 gifts per child: one "main" thing, one smaller thing (unless the main thing eats up the whole budget), and one item that they need, like pajamas or a new coat or shoes. If there's money left in the budget after that, we get a few "group" gifts for the family.

My husband and I do not exchange gifts at Christmas. I wish we could get by with buying only for children in the extended family, but so far we can't get the extended family to go for that.

We have too many children to spend $300 or $400 per child, and I don't really think I would do it even if I could.

I miss buying for young children. Young adults and teenagers are MUCH harder to please than the little ones.

It does not matter what they want. It is what they are going to get. Their tax dollar, we spend, they pay.
I know the answer, a new high school.
Morristown! Lets give your kids a new high school. While we are at spending money let spend to rid the homeless here in Morristown.
By that I mean everyone has a home.
Where do these kid get their shopping list?
I think we could do without that!
Money is tight???
Harsh I know but really?

Hey everyone ! Let's live a "white boy" life !?!?!? That's pretty much what he has been suggesting. At least telling you to not spend your monies on your children cause his "tight" money situation. We will further weaken the local economy and spend all that hardearned monies in knoxville. So all the morristown shops can start closing down. SO that job that some slave at can disappear because people choose to spend money in surrounding counties and not in morristown/hamblen county ! Anyway.. good day all !
