Gifts for xmas

I am thinking what to buy for my brother’s kids this year for xmas. Last year my sister and I we have bought a coupon for toys worth $200, but I don’t want to make the same thing this year. What about you? DO you like coupons or do you like presents more?

Re: Gifts for xmas

I like coupons more, personally. But I'm no longer a child. Part of the fun of Christmas was the anticipation of opening those packages! So if it can be wrapped and (maybe) cause even a little "wide eyed awe", then it needs to be gifts. I do send money to the kids and let them buy gifts for their children. That prevents duplicates and unwanted items. But the children don't know that, they just know there is more "stuff" under the tree!!

Re: Gifts for xmas

I like presents over money, there is something nice about receiving a gift that someone picked out for me.
but I just send money to the parents of my Niece and Nephew for the same reason's as mastersmith (not wanting to create duplicate presents).

Re: Gifts for xmas

I usually prefer actual gifts over gift cards. I especially like when they get me something unexpected

Re: Gifts for xmas

If youre shopping for kids then I would ask the parents what you should get, that can avoid getting them a present someone else got and I think most children would prefer a present to open rather than a card with coupons or gift cards inside. On another side though, my brothers kids love getting gift cards because they are getting to that age that they like to shop for themselves. So in either scenario I would talk to the parents and ask them what they think their kids would rather have.

Re: Gifts for xmas

Yes, I talked to her and she said that my timing couldn't be better because they wanted to get him a foosball table. He watched that cartoon "Underdogs" about foosball and he loves foosball now. :D I like that, it is always good to have a foosball table around :D The only problem is that it won't be a big table for foosball but smaller one. You, know the one you can put on the table, it has no legs. I mean, I am ecstatic I don't have to think about that anymore which is great. :hbg:

Re: Gifts for xmas

Heeeeeeelp! What does L want for Christmas and her birthday (2 weeks after Christmas!)? We have everything... balls, ride on toys, puzzles, books, colours, blocks, stacking cups, duplo, cars, toys, clothes, bedding - we've asked for family things (Annual passes to local places, games etc.) from some people but others want to get her things for just her, and not money (we're saving any money towards climbing frame type thing for all 3).

She doesn't need any more personalised things (She got loads of pictures, teddies etc. when she was born). So far, we've come up with a tea set (but even then, J is more likely to play with it, so might be a better present for him).

Any ideas, oh you of 3 (or more) children?

Re: Gifts for xmas

I'm getting my nephews a RetroPie. It's a game console that emulates classic game consoles. So there are thousands of games you can play on it.
They are 12 , 10 and 6 years old. And my sisters boyfriend is 45 , and he i think he will play with it too.
Trust me , I'm a locksmith
