  • I think it depends on the family budget; My budget changed from year to year, I just made sure that I could afford to spend the same amount on each child that year.

  • Totaly depends on what the kid is wanting/wishing for for their bday. I normaly get 6 or 7 things, only one big ish, the rest smaller

  • I challenge you to find a way to keep it under $30. Kids are getting so spoiled these days. It should increase with age and good behavior but at 7 years old, they shouldn't get much. I say bake some cupcakes, no gifts for her classmates, just get her some art supplies or a small radio for her gift. You have to start them off small or they'll want something bigger and better every year.

  • hellokitty: isn't it a little strange to not bring cupcakes or something to class? it's sort of a big deal....
