Also I think there is pressure of a sort when people ask what you getting them, after listening to how much they are spending on their children, even at this young age.
I have been looking on eBay this week at Duplo sets for Alex as he really likes the set he had last year, and I have been wondering whether to try and get some fire station or police station sets on there, but I have my doubts. I feel a bit weird buying second hand things for a present, but don't really know why, as you can get so much more for your money and something like Duplo always looks in good condition.
So just wondering, how much do you usually spend on your children on their Birthday/Christmas presents? Have you ever saved money by buying things second hand for a present?
I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions.
