  • My son is 16 months and has only had 1 birthday, but we went way over board for him, I was really excited because it was his first one. We spent about $300 on gifts and about $600 on the party. Not counting what he got from grandparents, aunts and uncles and friends. Next year I vow not to spend so much.

  • I usually spend around $60-$70. My daughter's bday is in the summer and it is really hard because we go on vacation during the summer.

  • Maybe $200 to $300, but that doesn't include the party.
