  • We will spend probably around $50. We just get a kids a few little things right now since they have a lot of grandparents, aunts and uncles that spoil them like crazy. We usually get them art supplies, books, and one bigger toy (around $30 or so)

  • This is our first x-mas with our daughter...and being our only child, I know my hubbie with spoil her....I would rather be a little more frugal but I know we will spend at least $200 on her gifts...and I am purchasing an education saving bond for $500......I don't want her to grow up believeing that x-mas is only ablout receiving....I want to teach the value of money and that x-mas is about is a time for family, love and giving of self.

  • About $200 each. Last year I went all out because my husband was deployed and we had more money. They trashed their toys within a week.
