  • Probably $10 on each. Mostly stuff from the dollar store. My husband lost his job over a year ago and has not found a job yet so we have to be careful with our money. Luckily my kids are still little so they are happy with small things. We might get them some clothes from thrift stores because there are things they need but we won't spend more than $50 all together for everything.

  • we only have one child right now, so we arent to big on making a limit. Personally I want to get him one present from me and dh, and one from santa. But dh didnt get alot of gifts when he was a child, so he likes to get our son tons of toys for xmas and bday.

  • $10 on our son, $10 on each of us...
    I think it's going to be a great Christmas though :)

  • IDK... I was hoping to spend a lot, but we just don't have a lot. So a little I guess it is. LOL

  • We spent about 200 on our daughter. We are going to Texas to visit family for Christmas, so we figure she will end up with lots there.

  • Like $85. The only reason we are spending that much is she really needs a new car seat, she's practically out grown her infant one, so we got her a car seat on layaway. I know she's only 1 and won't care, but I figured she'd have fun trying to unwrap the big box and have more fun playing with the big box. LOL. We also got her a few other things like a bath toy for $3, a few new clothes from the consignment shop and some books from the $1 store.

  • About $300 for each kid and my dh and I will each spend around $300-$400. They will also get about $300 each from my parents and about $100 from my mil. I'd say another $300 total from other family members.

  • Don't know. LOL He's one, so it will be something small. Some sort of toy that he can play with. All of his clothes are hand me downs from cousins, so i don't see the point in getting more clothes. We might get him another set of PJ's. But I don't know how much we will spend. It won't be over like $40 though.

  • We usually spend around $150 per kid and dh and I usually don't buy for each other. If we do, it's nothing major. Just some something.
