    So i've been talking to a few people (teens like myself (19), and they say on average at Christmas they get like 10-12 gifts from the parents Which i'm a little shocked at, because I usually get between 30 and 40 (I thought this was normal) :confused:

    So are they just not as spoilt, or is it about normal?

    How many do you guys get? I'm curious now! It's not something I considered before.

    Wow, who knew people could be so negative! :rolleyes:

    Depends on the cost of the presents.

    If I'm getting one single expensive thing like an iPod, I'll get that alone.
    If there's nothing in particular I'd like, it's several little things, like CDs, books, DVDs etc.

    Maybe about 10. I think it was about 15 last year but I got more smaller ones. I think I'll have less this year as I've asked for a new TV so it will be that and a few pressies. I much rather get pressies than money.

    About 5-6 at most. I'm OK with that though, my parents aren't made of money so it's nice to get some gifts even if they aren't iPods or whatever.

    It would vary but not that much. You get 30-40 from your parents alone?

    Yes. But i'm not like Dudley :lol: my Dad gets the same in return though! So it's not a one way thing.

    I've got about 6 under the tree atm, will get a few small things in my stocking, not expecting much because they are paying for me to go to Berlin in July.
