This year will be Oliver’s 2nd Christmas. He’s much more active, aware and interested now than he was last year so to me it’s our 1st real Christmas and we’ll be in our own home this time (with our own tree, eeeek!)
I had started buying Oliver’s Christmas presents in August last year which I now think is absolutely ridiculous, I went completely overboard and bought him so much stuff he really didn’t need and that was without everyone else’s presents. My mind set this year is to keep it minimal, but how minimal? What is enough for a 22 month old?
I feel as if I could be on a thin line from not buying enough and buying too much and it’s a tricky situation. Maybe I’m over thinking it but as I’m not used to having such an important little man to buy for, I don’t know how to go about it. We’ve bought him 1 present already as Matt loved it and it’s personal from him to Oliver but I’m also stuck on ideas on what to get him.
I’d love to know if any of you have a budget/a plan that you stick to for Christmas or birthdays as I really do need one so I don’t over buy. How many stocking presents vs. main presents? Ahh, all of this for one day!
I hope some of you may be able to help a tragic over thinker in her time of need.. Please?
