    how much will you spend on 2010 Christmas?

    How to choose a correct gift for your kids at the 2010 Christmas.
    Christmas has been one of most famous and important holiday for western country people. Why does Christmas so popular, especially to the youth. The reason is that kid can get gifts from the Santa Claus or we may call it father Santa Claus. Though the period of getting gifts from Santa Claus has passed away for years, I would like to share some of my experience on preparing gifts for children.
    When my boy was 4 years old, he love fairy tale very much so that I bought a series of Fairy tale books with a huge red stockings packaged. But when my little princess was four, she started to want some beautiful clothing, so I bought her a princess dress which was so beautiful.
    Ten year later, my 14 years old son asked me for a motorbike because their age want something new and powerful, but I can’t do that. He was too early to have such ones, so I prepared one psp instead. He got crazy on the psp game later and the result was I didn’t protect him well. But when my little princess got 14, she asked her mother for an GUJI bag, my darling only gave our young princess new apple tv phone. This time we didn’t worry about my daughter become crazy about games ,but she started to chat and date with the cellphone. My princess give her kiss to another male not here daddy any more.
    Now my kids are grown-up but they are still asking me for the Christmas gifts, which is also my favorite thing to do cause kid are our princess and prince. But now, both my kids are at college which makes me very happy everyday.
    If you are a parent, choose the right gift for you kids is very important. And sometimes, you don’t have to care too much about the correct gifts but the habit or the teaching from perents.
    Just enjoy the giving of Christmas gifts.
    If you have some problem on this, we can share with you, I hope all of you can have a happy Christmas on 2010.
    For my kid, I open an gift store, here welcome all of you to visit my store. I will give you the right advice on choosing the gift.

    It's pretty big - certainly a good time for retailers in shopping malls.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    How much we spend on in the end of the day comes down to what the product is... If the kids wants games you can expect to pay R600+ for a game, if it is music you will look at about R300+. Electronics like mp3 players, camera’s video cameras and mobile phones you know it is going to be between R600 to R4000 “depending on your budget”

    If it is clothing it can run from R400 to R4000 easy “depending on your budget”

    But Christmas is really a big thing for here in South Africa.

    Thanks, Dave
    As you know, chirstmas is really a good time for all and it is also a good time for all to go shopping to satisfy themselves.
    It's a good chance to extend the selling, BUT our promoting speed hasn't catched up with the needs.
    Maybe, next year, we can take use of this one.

    Why not set the ipad as you christmas gift which is also what you spend on this christmas. Or talk to your Santa Claus who may give it to you if you are still at the gift-receiving-age.

    There's an age limit on receiving gifts from Santa?

    2-3 days...maybe more.

    i will be making wooden gifts again this christmas.

    i have been collecting scrap wood to make everyone a gift...one year everyone got duck boards...

    this year...i will be making a variety of wooden gifts for family and friends.

    if anyone doesnt have family or friends...send me a pm with your postal address and i will make a christmas gift for you and post it to you.

    if anyone like myself has more than they need...consider people who are less fortunate than yourself and try give someone something no matter how small it may seem to you...it will make your christmas more enjoyable.
