Re: What are you getting your LO for Christmas?

They are each getting those kid digital cameras, board games, I'm making a big tee-pee for their reading nook, new wool gloves and hat from etsy, and new pajamas. I might also make a waldorf doll for my youngest and make new outfits for the older two's dolls.

Re: What are you getting your LO for Christmas?

Great thread! I hope lots of people chime in so we can get ideas. I still need a few.

Shared gifts for the girls -
A dress up chest (like, literally, the chest and maybe a few items to go inside - does anyone know of a good place to get something like this? I checked the thrift stores and found one old, junky chest but I'm looking for something nicer but not too expensive. otherwise, i don't even know where to shop for a chest.)

Making animal ear head bands

I also want to do a homemade I Spy thing. I took all the pictures, now just need to figure out how I want to put it together.

If I have extra time (haha), I want to do a Duplo Lego puzzle book. Put together a bunch of different "puzzles" with Duplos, take a picture, then put them in a book. The kids can sort through the legos and put the puzzles together to match the picture.

5yo DD is also getting a bunch of new PJ's from OUAC.

I am still thinking about a bigger gift for the 2yo and something small for the baby boy (not clothes, though). Maybe one bigger gift for all of them for Christmas morning.

for stockings - toothbrush, toothpaste, bandaids, and a crayon (marker) roll for each.

Re: What are you getting your LO for Christmas?

We only do gifts for kids in our family....
4yo DD and 6yo DS we're doing a want, wear, play, share theme.
ODS is getting a nintendo DS (want), adventure time shirt (wear), batman action figure car (play), kindle fire (share with his sister).
DD is trying to decide between a monster high high school or a toy unicorn "with a horn and hair and a brush!" (want), twinkle toes shoes (wear), monster high doll (play), kindle fire (share with brother).

YDS, who will be 15 months at Christmas, we're doing a want, need, play, read theme. No clue for want or play yet lol Maybe a couple nice wood puzzles with chunky pieces made for little hands? Need will probably be clothes or a new cloth diaper or two (not like he NEEDS more diapers, but hey, *I* like them ), read will be a couple new board books.

My niece will turn 4 a few days after Christmas, so I have to figure out something for her for Christmas AND her b-day. I think I might try grabbing some halloween costumes on clearance after halloween and making her a dress-up box for one gift, and then a doll for the other since she keeps telling me she needs more babies

ds1 is 5 and he's getting a few 100 piece puzzles, a few dress up super hero costumes and a science kit

ds2 is 2 years old and is getting a stamp collection and a few monster trucks.

Then they get a few presents together on Christmas day which will be some new books and something else but I'm not sure what yet.

DD will be 2 in January, she is getting a Bitty Baby for Christmas

DS1 is 5 and he is getting lots of Legos

DS2 I am unsure of so far, he is having his birthday party this weekend, so it will largely depend on what sorts of things he gets for his birthday from family, and how much he enjoys certain things

4.5 year old DD:
From Santa: Mango Tiki Wiki Lalaloopsy, The snail and the whale and Moostletoe (books), some clothes, leg warmers and a hello kitty in her stocking (with the usual toothbrush toothpaste hair clip stuff).
From us: Not sure yet. (Maybe a My Little Pony or a Merida doll).

Almost 3 year old DS:
From Santa: Blue Dinoco Lightning McQueen and Cruisin McQueen die cast cars, I love you stinky face and I saw santa (books), some clothes. In his stocking he'll get a couple expansion pieces for his wooden train track and a train with cars that spell out his name along with the 'regular' stuff.

Depending on funds come xmas they may be getting new pillows and gymnastics classes as well.

Re: What are you getting your LO for Christmas?

The main gift for my 2.5year olds will be balance bikes.

They were 18M last christmas. The favorite gifts were blocks (got got Haba Fantasy blocks and Mega Bloks). They also got the Little Tikes shopping cart and Tool Bench and really liked those (and still do).

My son will be 27 months old at Christmas. We are planning to give him a few Schleich animal figures, a set of Duplos, a couple new board books and maybe a new puzzle, if I can find one I like.
