This is what we do, although sometimes it is hard to stop with books. Santa generally brings them one item as well, plus their stocking. DH and I are pulling away from gifts, although we do plan what we need/want. He wanted some TV/computer system this year so he is getting that for a milestone birthday around Christmas and Christmas combined. He also needs a new winter coat, so he is shopping for that. I don't really need anything right now, but we need a new vacuum hose, so I think that might be my "Christmas gift." We do fill stockings for each other, though and help the children to choose something for each other and for the other parent.
