  • I only have one but we've got him about 30-35 presents so far. And we decided to spend 40 on each other. And 5 on everyone else, besides my younger sister, we spent 60 on her.

  • As my son got older the most expensive each present became. When he was younger he would get several now that he is a teenager I let him get him 1 $200-$300 present then I will buy him clothes as the rest of his presents, like sweatshirts and jeans.

  • We got our 15-month-old son about 10 presents. He will be getting soooo many from other family members we figured he wouldn't need too many. I think it's already going to be way too overwhelming for him!

  • I spend the same amount on each kid but they do not get the same # of presents. They are different ages so of course the 17 yr old gets less quantity b/c his gifts cost more money. We spend $200-$300 per child. I would say the little ones end up with about 15 gifts from us and about 5 from Santa.

  • My one year old son has two "Big Gifts" (A Child's electric keyboard piano and a learning laptop), a couple shirts, and then he'll have his stocking stuffers. Right now his has Christmas related Rubber duckies. I will add in some bath toys and a couple of his favorite toddler treats then he's done. My daughter is only going to be two months old at Christmas, so we got her a few onsies and that's it.
