In my family, we do the small things from Santa. Santa brings new panties/underwear/boxers, new socks, Poke`mon cards, CD's, DVD's, little Hot Wheel cars, lip glosses, dolls, legos, nail polishes, toothbrushes, cool toothpastes, new CD ear buds, you know...the small things that they would need or want. Oh, and for older kids, deoderant, new shower supplies, stuff like that. But most of all, Santa brings candy, and it's not the cheap candy...it's the "NAME-BRAND" candy because that's the only time "he" knows that my kids never get a lot of candy.
And then for under the tree, it's the clothes, shoes, guitar (oldest DS asked for one), large-type toys, jewelry boxes, etc... But this year they are getting 2 things each under the tree...Oldest DS is getting 2 DVD's and the guitar. Next 3 are getting jeans/shirt and 1 toy item/or something they need, and 2 younger ones are just getting 2 small toy items each. That's it. That's all I can afford.
