And how many kids do you have? What ages?
I'm spending about 100 dollars on Christmas for my two kids and that includes my oldest's birthday on Dec. 9th.
My children will be two and 5 months on Christmas.
I have been called cheap (I prefer frugal lol!) but look at all I got for them so far that is with in my budget! I got my 5 month old a Drop and Roar Dino, A alligator xylophone, and a v-tec learning ball. I got my 2 year old a rug with roads on it, a little tykes workbench, a bunch of battery operated tools, some kitchen tools (play microwave, coffee maker, and blender), plastic food, and a DVD. I have 20 dollars left on my 100 dollar budget and I'm not sure I will be getting anything else.
Our girls are two and almost four. This year we are thinking $1000 to $3500 depending on if we go with a playhouse or not. If not then it will be $1000 to $1500 each.

at those ages 100 is pretty good especially since you probably have more toys then you know what to do with lol.
mine are older and we average 200 per kid but i dont spend it all at once i buy all year long, i have a crap load of bakugan in my closet i have been buying on clearance, pj's, legos, and anything else that i can find from their list. I still need to pick up more PJ's everyone gets new comforters this year and probably a few new games for their wii and the leapsters (i wait for the xmas sales for those). I can tell you as they get older it gets harder to buy inexpensive but my kids know if they get something big it is probably the only thing they are getting, they understand the cost of things so they don't complain, and they even love when we do combo gifts that they share like this year they will probably get rock band as a combo gift.
