my kids are both toddlers and they are very vocal of what they want us to buy for them hehe. I do try to buy what they want as long as my budget would allow it and we find it fit for their age. Most of the time we just bring them along for them to choose on their own in the store. Yes, we are training them in decision-making at a young age. Good thing is that my kids are the understanding type, they don't throw tantrums if we tell them that a particular toy is out of our budget or is not good for them.

I try to get them things I have heard them say they wanted, but its hard because they rarely play with anything ( I find it weird considering the oldest is only 8. you think they would love toys. But they don't play with them. they would rather fight with eachother.) My step son told me last week everything he wanted for christmas and the funny thing is everything he mentioned, he has! So it's hard to buy him what he said he wanted when he already has all that he just don't play with it.

I do try to get my children what they want for christmas. I'm pretty good at picking christmas gifts. I listen throughout the year to what they like and what they talk about. money is tight this year so i can't get them everything i would like to, but i think i do pretty good. mine are young enough they still believe in santa so i can pick stuff off the santa list to get them too.
