Mr B and I aren’t doing gifts for each other because there’s not enough cash left over after doing everyone else’s gifts (unless I get a surprise work bonus) so will just do stocking stuff.
I bought all the chocolate for kids’ stockings on Sunday so just need to pick up some small bath bits, a chocolate Santa each and new pants (as is tradition).
Biggest kid is easy to buy for this year - her list is pretty much all squishmallows and other cuddly toys so will get one off her list, she’s having a phone and case, minecraft strategy books and fleece blanket, a songwriter notebook and a toy sloth.
Kid 2 is harder this year. Thinking the vTech camera with green screen so she can pretend to be a YouTuber… squishmallows, a ventriloquist doll/teddy, moon boots (?!). Will get them to write their lists the week after next so I/Santa can get on with it.
Signed them both up for HyperJar cards so will load some cash on those for them to get started with.
I’m making a blanket for my brother’s new house which I probably won’t get finished in time for Christmas unless I spend every free second on it between now and then. Other brother I’m thinking theatre vouchers because he really wants to go to a show but his gf hates musicals so thought we could go with him when he chooses something.
My parents are a nightmare and I’ve no idea what to get them other than the usual calendar with pictures of the kids which is another tradition. In-laws are Mr B’s problem!
