    Default Help! Is this enough for Christmas??

    Iím almost done buying for my kids which is just crazy! But although I have completed my list and Iím following my budget, it feels like not much to open up? Maybe I need a few very inexpensive things? Or does this sound good?

    Every kid is getting a nerf Gun, a board game, their completed baby book, tickets to the trampoline park, pajamas and one Santa gift (my two big kids 16 and 12 want a switch game and the two littles want a Rizmo). I will probably add a book for each. Would you add anything?

    Ok good! It just seems weird to be done before December! My SIL used to swear that by procrastinating she saved money on Christmas and I think I get where sheís coming from at this point! I just keep second guessing myself, lol.,

    I think that's perfect! If you wrap up each of those things separately, that's a lovely amount for each kid to open.

    That sounds great! My problem with being done so early is that I keep adding one more thing. I lose count and don’t realize how much I’ve bought until I pull it all out Christmas Eve.

    I think it sounds like enough, especially if they gift each other things. I'm usually at 5-6 things and then it grows because they get 2 more from siblings (1 each), aunt/uncles, etc. Before I know it, they each have 12 things to open Christmas morning.
