    No need for calculator. They'll be on their phone/ipad/watch.
    Books are great though, you can never have enough books

    600 quid on a kids christmas present. either i was really hard done by, or people have a LOT more disposable income these days. might as well shut down all the threads over on the politics forum regarding low wages and rising cost of food etc, everyone must be flush as fuck!

    We never have a budget as such for our kids. We buy them what they have asked for and don't get hung up on spending exactly the same on them - they end up sharing things like games and consoles anyway. I would never worry that we had spent too much or not enough on them.
    This year me and the Mrs aren't getting each other anything. We are always that busy on Christmas Day that we don't open our own stuff until Boxing Day. It's all about the kids anyway in my opinion.

  9. Nope, it will be primarily used for gaming. Input lag (the amount of time it takes for what you do on a controller to be shown on the screen) can be an issue.

    You're right, but I bet your kids wouldn't tell the difference.
  11. I've only got the one, I dont make the same mistake twice. :p

    Buying him something that I think is shit because he doesn't know any better doesn't sit right with me.

    As it is I got a good deal on a 4k HDR TV.

    They won't give a shit either way. Obviously up to you though.

    cuddly toy each for the kids which they're too young for and think she wants to get them a couple sensory light toys. Be less than £100 each. Got her some perfume which she bought herself :lol:

    I leave the actual spending on the kids to her so I daren't ask, but things soon add up.
    I do have some input into what they get but I'm in charge of the spends for house and cars.

    I've spent pushing £200 on her. I might take some of it back...

    Wow, I thought we spend more than average on our kids. Some lucky/spoiled kids around :lol:
  19. He will care, he's going from a 22inch that's not HD to a 43 inch 4K. He'll be chuffed to bits.
