Just after some thoughts on my present list for 3 y/o DD.
While I love Christmas and think it's a magical time for littlies we are really concious of teaching her to value what she receives. I also don't want a house full of junky toys or to set up expectations that she will receive stacks and stacks of presents each Christmas. Here is what we have planned for her;
A mini micro scooter and helmet as her "big present".
- 3 x books
- 2 x tops
- 1 x jeans
- 1 x cardie
- drink bottle
- fairy wand
- pack of knickers
- wooden play food
She has also chosen a special Christmas deco for the tree and will get new pjs on Christmas eve (our little family traditions).
So what do you think? Too much or not enough? Any suggested items to add? Money is not really an issue as we only have one and I keep seeing gorgeous stocking fillers but am trying to keep myself in check! My parents used to go massively overboard at Christmas with enormous santa sacks filled to the brim and while of course it was fun I'm not sure we ever really appreciated it.....
She will also receive presents from both sets of grandparents and 3 x Aunties / Uncles / Cousins.
Would love to hear your thoughts and what you have planned for your kidlets!
That's plenty (particular since she will receive more from family). And a good selection.
If you were going to buy anything else, I'd probably go a fairy tiara, to match the wand.
My girls love their wands and tiaras - get used SO much.
ETA : We tend to do small Xmas and big birthdays. What you are giving a bit more than what we are giving DD1 (5.5 yo) and DD2 (who is nearly 4)
