  • about $600 for our 3 kids then my friends 3 kids, and several friends and my dh. I havent finished the gifts for family because i havent gotten the photos back yet so they are all getting theirs late but they are okay with it so ill probably spend another $50 by the time i pay for the photos, frames and postage. Our family isnt near by they all live out of state so we all mail gifts late lol it seems to be a tradition for all of us now.

  • Less than $200. We bought gifts for 3 of our kids, 3 great-grandparents, 2 sets of parents, and family gifts for our siblings.

  • Over a grand. Between my 3 kids and the 2 families I adopted (they had 6 kids total) lots of money went out this year. BUT knowing we were able to make the holiday's merry for others was worth spending the extra cash. Can't wait till tax time when I can bring some grocery gift cards into my kiddo's school for the families that are still struggling after the holidays are over with.
