    My birthday is coming up and my husband has asked me what I wanted. I'm a bit stumped for ideas!:rollsmile: I thought it would be a good occasion to invest in something useful but nice. What were your favourite useful presents? and what is on your wishlist?

    I was thinking about the annual discussion on how many presents, what type of presents, the questions that come from the answers, and how people feel the need to defend the way they do things, especially when it concerns their children. I think Christmas brings out tradition in people. They...

    So, apologies if this topic is already around here somewhere, but is any one else NOT buying Xmas presents this year? My Dh and I are seriously considering not buying presents this year at all.

    I am so sick of having a birthday party for my child (now 7 years old) and having him receive sooooo many presents from his friends that generally either break, get lost or are never played with. I also hate handing out goodie bags filled with junk and candy. What a waste of money. Who needs...

    I really really stink at wrapping presents. It's not as bad as it used to be. However, it could be better. It's those odd-shaped presents that I either a) don't have a secondary box big enough for or b) doesn't come in a box at all. I had trouble with at least half of the presents I had to wrap...

    How does everyone feel about giving "necessities" or more practical items as gifts? I often will buy something practical with an impractical twist for the kids for Christmas. For example, I'll include a new toothbrush and toothpaste in their stockings, but these won't be the usual ones that I...

    I usually handmake a portion of my Christmas presents each year after seeing something at a craft show or a picture in a magazine. I haven't been inspired yet this year. Does anyone have any good ideas for Christmas presents? I don't crochet or knit- so those ideas are out. I made photograph...

    We usually spend $100 per child, but occasionally we go over budget like last year when my hubby decided to surprise us with a new computer(thankfully not a computer from the store but from reduced priced partsfrom my cousin) so it didn't break us but I wish I had known so that I could budget it...
