What did you buy and what did you spend on child's 1st Christmas?

I am trying to determine how much money to set aside for Christmas. This will be my daughter's first Christmas and she will be 11 months old at Christmas. Did you go all out for your child's first Christmas? Did you do stockings for them? What did you use as stocking stuffers? What did you give as gifts? I know it's early to be planning for Christmas but I don't want it to sneak up on me. Once Labor Day passes you blink and its Halloween then Thanksgiving and Christmas.

We bought our son a little car that grows with the child,first he could sit in it and push buttons (he was also 11months old) then we could put the wheels on but with side protection and now its without the protection and he still uses it.He is 2and a half now.It costet 79swiss franks.We didnt have stockings.Other family members gave him clothes.Our son was more interested in the giftwrap then anything else:-)

My child was younger for their first Christmas. We didn't have a lot of money and I decided that the baby was our present and our gift to the relatives we were visiting for the holidays. My family bought some clothes and baby toys. They grow so fast that I wouldn't invest in a lot of toys unless they can grow with the child for several years.
