We have bought a toy shopping cart, books, a toy cash register for Olivia. Other ideas I've had are more Duplo blocks, a toy purse, those hard plastic animals, My little pony, Mrs. Potato Head (we already have Mr. so DH vetoed this one), Calico Critters set.
Other ideas that we already own - doctor/vet kit, train table/set, play kitchen, easel, construction vehicles, dress up clothing
Lol, he's like my daughter-she loves shoes so I got her slippers for her birthday. She loves to stomp around in them and now she has something she's allowed to wear in the house since we have a no shoes indoors rule.

I want to get her a toy ice cream set because she asks for ice cream a gazillion times a day (she calls everything sweet ice cream) and instead of telling her "No" constantly, I will pull out the toy ice cream and say "this is the ice cream, that's all we have right now, just pretend!" I am also thinking of getting her a magnetic alphabet set.
I like the dollhouse idea too.
We're doing slippers, a toy dyson vaccum, fishing game, Barbie doll, a remote for kids (on amazon, they have 7 buttons that will be pre-programed channels), grocery cart, new markers, stickers and a medical kit.
I like doing a lot of little gifts than one big one. I do the same thing with DH too.
Tobey is getting a balance bike and a few other bits and bobs like more trains, drawing stuff, duplo
I'm going to try to follow this rule:
1 thing they want
1 thing they need
1 thing they wear
1 thing they read
Although, with it being Christmas we will probably do 2-3 things they want. And this doesn't necessarily include stocking gifts.
Their joint santa gift might be a dollhouse. DD1 wants a horse stable lego set. She'll probably get an American girl doll, too.
DD2 might really like those Calico Critters? I don't have many ideas for her yet.
I like that a LOT. Not including stocking, and probably one big and a couple of little "wants" :) Although all she REALLY wants is cookies.
I like that rule. Although it'd be : chips, diapers, shoes and a parenting magazine...at least this week that's what would fall into those rules...
Adair's would be cookies, toy organization, socks, and a book about either animals or babies. Preferably both.
Lainey's wants include goldfish crackers, gummy candy, and all other things containing sugar. And duplo blocks. And playdoh.
Oh these are making me laugh ladies!!
