I would love to know if you give a gift from you and a gift from Santa or does everything come from Santa? I have always put from Santa but recently in my friend group it has been bought up and discussion had around one gift should be from you and one from Santa. I would love to hear some feedback on what you do in your house?

  • One or a few little gifts from “Santa” and the rest from mum and dad. Breaks my heart thinking kids go to school and got a laptop from Santa while others got a pair of socks.

  • My kids wrote letters to Santa with their wish lists, we got as much as we could from Santa from those lists. Big ticket items were definitely from us

  • This was our first year where both kids understood Santa. We decided the big ticket item was from us and Santa got them small things

  • Every family is different and we all have our own way of doing things, and this is why I think there isn’t a right or wrong answer on this question. Just do what is right for your family and don’t worry about what others are doing :)

  • This varies depending on your family’s culture and habits. I think just one gift is enough.

  • Two gifts from Santa and rest from us. We try not to make it expensive.

  • i just one to teach how precious that gift. personally i feel that if there are more gifts then they tend to no appreciate it.

  • One or two gifts from Santa. The rest from us.

  • Santa brings one medium gift, the rest are from the parents.

  • We spend about $200 pp. We never made the division between gifts from Santa and gifts from us as parents

  • Every family is different and we always keep Christmas low key and there is no going overboard with gifts.

  • We give our kids presents from Father Christmas and from us. Each family only needs to do whatever they feel comfortable with.

  • Santa for the big gifts and parents for the stocking stuffers.

  • I never followed that rule as such. Only our youngest still believes in Santa and she has a developmental delay. I always told my kids that Saint Nicholas is a man that truly lived, a generous man with a heart for the poor and that with Christmas we live in his spirit…so Santa is kind of real

  • i personally do one every year. this will keep them exciting and keep the toy or the gift carefully.
