  • I think this year we may try for around $30-40 or so per child. They already have so much and we always go overboard then end up donating a ton of stuff to goodwill when the kids don't pay it any attention because they have too much. Between three girls, I think we may try to get bigger stuff for them to share this year rather than smaller individual gifts. That way the toys get used and not forgotten.

  • Oh, and mine are also 5 (2 of them) and 3.5. They have a baby brother who is 6 months old also but he will get baby toys. :)

  • I need to go donate some toys, but everytime I try the girls try to keep more than what they give away.

  • We have two children this year (three by next Christmas. Our third is due in February). I don't plan on spending any more then 100 for them both.

  • P.S. That's not 100 per child.. That's both of their gifts will amount to no more then 100.

  • About 2
    $250 each. It adds up quick. We get them about 12-14 gifts, as the only other relative to get them gifts is my mom. So that is why we get them so much. Between 1 big gift, 3-4 smaller ones, some books, a game or two, and some clothes, its easy to spend that much.
