Thread: Christmas 2017 *shocked face*

    Christmas 2017 *shocked face*

    Despite not quite believing it, once again Christmas is fast approaching

    I've officially started my shopping now, I'm intending on being as frugal as I can with people that aren't Logan 😂

    I decided to save through Park vouchers this year, so I'm waiting on those being delivered which I will use for the bulk of his stuff and I'm rather excited!

    Anyone else starting to think about the festivities yet? 🎅 🎄 📦 🌨

    I am SO excited for Xmas this year. First one as parents.

    I've ordered a couple of toys & books for dd. Have a budget for her to stick to, and also a budget for some stocking bits. Got her some Xmas pjs for her Xmas box. Also a personalised stocking and a little personalised plate for Santa. Havent thought about getting anyone else's gifts yet. Won't go mad on her as she will only be 9 months old and want more books or puzzles than toys.

    We're going to Center Parcs end of November this year and they have the xmas winter wonderland all out from 6th November so it will be really festive. They have reindeer and we have booked to see Santa for dd first ever visit to santa. She will be 8 months old so not have a clue but me and my oh are very excited.

    I cant wait for Christmas. First one in our new home and soooo much more room so can go nuts with decorating.

    Already had 99% of Chloe's presents by July as hit sales during year. Just need her present from Santa (waiting for the Santa visits to ensure she asks for same thing hehe).

    Present to ourselves should be a new (and expensive!) kitchen before end of year...woop!

    I have bought a couple of bits already which is a good job I did because they have sold them all already and not getting in more stock.

    I am not going to spend a fortune this year.

    Tempted to say to adults that we just buy for the kids cause it is silly as no one knows what to buy for anyone else and/or don't need anything so we always end up buying something that is rubbish really and sits on a shelf/in a cupboard or goes to the charity shop but I am not sure how to broach that with everyone!

    What about tickets to something? I took mine to see the touring Mama Mia as it came to the theatre near us in March. They loved it!
    A pass to visit somewhere?

    I'm trying a minimalist Christmas this year. For the kids too. Less crap just for the sake of it. They can choose one thing they really want. I'll get them a couple of books each. A couple of items of clothing (new socks type thing) and a ticket to something.
    Going to beg family to not overbuy too.

    I really need to start shopping. its harder when they get older as they want more expensive things. Also what age do you think a child finds out the truth about you know who?! someone told my eldest last year hes not real and he was outraged ha but did mention it to me to check. I told him some mummies choose not to use father xmas and maybe that's what happened to this boy. He totally brought that and was happy. Hes 10 in jan so what age do you tell them the truth?!!! I'm gutted!! why do they have to grow up so fast!
