Should I not buy my daughter so many Christmas gifts due to COVID?

I know this is a tough year for everybody, especially for kids, since lockdown can be such a big hit to them. I’m already buying Christmas presents for my 4-year-old; she’s my only child. And, as I do every year, I buy ahead of the holidays to avoid the higher prices, etc. I’ve gotten lots of backlash because of this. People insist it’s a bad year financially and that I shouldn’t be getting more than one present for my little one. Mind you; we have the rest of our necessities covered. I’m a working mom, and I just budget and plan ahead. Do you think I shouldn’t get my girl her usual number of gifts? I feel so bad now.

Get your child what you want, and tell everyone else to mind their own.

What does Covid have to do with how many gifts you buy your kid? If you can afford it do whatever you want.

You should do what you like. But instead of buying materialistic toys, your daughter might just enjoy the true meaning of Christmas. And spending time, reading, making sweets, playing simple games w/you than all those materialistic items.

If you’re able to who cares what people think? As a parent you shouldn’t be so easily swayed by others opinions and should be able to think for yourself.

You are doing the right thing, so don’t listen to anyone else.

I think it’s your business based on your finances. It’s no one else’s business. Everyone has different circumstances whether we’re in the middle of a pandemic or not. Do what you want for your family!

This only really applies when it comes to Santa.
Get your child whatever you want, from you. But if you participate in Santa gifts… maybe don’t go all out. Just a few, especially things she needs. Socks, underwear, etc. kids that are less fortunate might think they were bad or Santa doesn’t like them, because either kids got more or cooler things. What you get your child is up to you, but if you’re planning on putting “from Santa” just think about the other kids “Santa” is sending presents too as well.

I will be getting more than one present for my child. It’s no ones business what you get for your child if you can afford it. Don’t let anyone else make you feel bad.

I am really starting Christmas shopping right now as well. With the covid going on I bet during the holidays it’s going to be hard to get into stores to shop because of maximal capacity inside stores. We will have to wait outside. Whoever is bashing you is probably just jealous and can’t mind their own buisness. Do what you want with your child and your home.
