  • Well, I only have one son, and he's 3 months old. Me and my husband have bought him 11 presents, which is too much considering I know our family has all bought him a ton too! He's bound to get duplicates. Good thing he has a big toy box, lol!

  • He has about 52 gifts under the tree. We only bought him 7 things. My 9 siblings, my husbands 5 siblings and his 4 sets of grandparents bought the rest. He has 8 Santa gifts too.

  • I have an 18 month old DD and we bought her a TON of little things, and a few big things, I don't know exactly how many, but she is going to be having so much more fun with the paper and boxes, LOL. I'm not gonna lie, she is the only grandbaby so she is pretty spoiled..

  • 8...we celebrate Chanukah. They (18 and 19 years old) have rec'd gelt (chocolate coins) & a dreidel (combined it was less than $2) for the 1st, 4 bags of candy (less than $3 a bag) for nights 2-5, last night they each rec'd an antenae topper for their cars (cost $3.95 each), tonight one is getting a sports team penant & the other is getting a figure of one of their favorite Steelers player (cost...$6 for each) and tomorrow, we splurged a bit for their last night gift and 1 is recieving a homemade Pittsburgh Steelers cornhole board (which cost hubby $30 to make) and the other is recieving a home gym thing for doing situps and pushups that he's been wanting (cost...$30). We spent less than $60 on each of them for 8 gifts each.
