  • We spent around $150 on our son this year. Usually we aim for $500 including son, hubby and me, our parents, grandparents, and the 15 other relatives we buy for each year.

    Trying to come up with cheap ways to buy for everyone is always interesting. I shop through out the year just so i can hit all the sales and clearance I can.

  • I would say about $600 or so gets spent on my son and we probably spend about $200 on each other.

  • $10 freaking bucks on our son. We'll spend about $200 total- and that's for 12 people, shipping, Christmas cards, and fuel to get to the in-laws.
