I am trying to get a jump start on Christmas, especially since 3 of our daughters have winter birthdays. Their birthdays are 12/22, 2/8 & 3/4.
I will wait on most things for the older girls since their choices will change as they see stuff being released. I know some video games, movies & such I will get.
I am going back & forth about getting them MP3 players. We would have gotten them iPod Nanos but do not like the new design, we have an older generation that we love. I am not willing to put out over $250 a girl for touches. We do have 2 iPhones that will turn into touches but we will not want them carrying those around with them.
Our youngest will be 1 in early March. The problem is after your 4th girl you run out of things to get that you don't have a version of all ready. I have a few things on my amazon list for her. Our oldest will be 12 1/2 by Christmas & just at that awkward stage to buy for. Our soon to be 11 year old still wants to be into things that I feel as getting to be to young for her. It is not that I want her to grow up to soon I just want to get things that will grow with her.
I have talked to my sisters & they said our brother wants a PS2 for Christmas. I guess his ex wife threw his away or something like that. We are looking into getting him a used one from Gamestop. I am using my points from Myview survey site to get a $25 gift card to there to put towards it.
I am saving my change to cash in at coin star for amazon codes for my sisters & mom. I also know we will take our points from our debit card & get gift cards for my dad & in laws. That just leaves my sister-n-law & her husband to figure out.
My mom & FIL have late Dec birthdays too plus my dad has a late Nov birthday. That time of year hits hard. Starting in early Oct until March we have 10 birthdays not including all holiday spending.
I also have to make our 6 stockings. DH is the worst to shop for. He is one of those people who basically wants for nothing & gets what he wants when he wants it. I am the same way. I do love makeup, books, bath things, movies & video games though. That gives me lots of choices for my stockings. I end up getting DH things I know he will use (hair gel, body wash, gum, tylenol & such)
