    I think its a lovely gesture on his part, but understand it might have made you happier if you could have bought them together, as a shared thing. However, how about putting some of that money in to savings for her, then maybe get her a few small gifts or a pretty outfit? Shes only little so doesnt need a lot to make her happy

    why can't you just buy her more stuff to open at your moms house? I don't think I understand...most people would be thrilled if their child's father cared enough to buy the baby tons of pressies for Christmas...

    hey hun i think it was nice of the FOB to do that, what if you ask him for a couple of the gifts so she doesnt feel left out in the morning? or buy her some little things.

    has she got a walker off her daddy? I would buy her something that will last for quite a while and some nice clothes. You could just buy some little bits for her to open then save alot of the money for the sales after christmas or put it up towards her birthday presents

    That was nice of you FOB to do that, but understand how you feel at the same time. The nice thing about this time of year is that many stores put things on sale and you can get some real good bargains.

    Oh, one more thing, buy her some things for when she's a bit older. That way when she gets to that stage, she'll have things to play with. Ex. Ride-on toys, ball pits, etc.

    I'd get her an outfit for the day and ask OH for a couple of gifts for her to open in the morning to spread it out over the day. Save your money and hit the new year sales for birthday prezzies for her and put them away ;)

    Instead of worrying about buying more.
    Why dont you say to FOB....can we share the presents you've bought her, half for your mums, half for his, and then you say you'll put your money for her in savings...
    so you've both bought the presents and you both put money into savings for her.
