I have this 'discussion' every year with my wife. me: 'we need a couple more presents for the kids' her: 'what, we have plenty, stop wasting money' me: 'hmmph' this year although I'm having trouble thinking of stuff for my 9-year-old son, it still feels like we don't have that many. I think we have about four presents each, including <£10 stocking fillers and the most expensive being about £20 (Jessie doll from disney store). I remember coming down to a table full of stuff when I was little. Its not how much we spend, more about the number of things to unwrap. So, how many presents roughly do you get your kids? Any issues finding a balance with your other half?
