Actually Mystery I'd rather tell my DH family what I'd like because that solves the problem of having to find a spot in the garden for a large , plastic Mrs TiggyWinkle.
but like UnscaryMum, I'm digressing too.
My DS1 ( 11 ) much prefers money because then he can save up for expensive items he knows he wouldn't otherwise receive. I usually buy a smallish present from his brother and sister and then only give him 20 pounds ..but as he's chuffed to bits with that I don't see the need to increase it !
His sister who is only 6 likes to go to Bluewater or a big town near us and choose lots of girly things as part of her present ( the rest will be toys chosen by me ) so I probably spend much, much more on her. That's my fault though because I could quite happily spend , spend, spend on girls things....boys are a bit boring !
