Lex Gabrielle 4 Nov 2020

Christmas is a holiday that many children and parents look forward to all year. By the time the holiday season comes around, parents are already shopping and buying things to gift to their children for the big day. No matter what is going on, some parents just love to give their kids a lot of fun and festive presents for Christmas time. Some parents give a lot, while others limit gifts, but there's nothing quite like seeing your kid's smiles on Christmas morning.

Some parents believe that Christmas time is the time to spoil your kids.


While buying things for them all year round may not be the best idea, many parents believe that Christmas time is the right time to go above and beyond for them.

"We are exactly the same with our little miss four! We have so many items already in our roof stash not including an electric scooter, a frozen motorbike and a unicorn that you ride and it walks. We have also hired reindeer and snow for our front yard! They are only little once," one person added in the comments.
