  • $500-$1,000 depending on our budget that year!

  • It varies. I don't spend as much when they are young, because they're easy to please. My 4 month old will be getting just a couple of toys - probably $25-30 total. My 2 year old will be getting around $100, but that's only because we are getting him a train table. My 9 and 10 year olds we will be spending about $150 on each. My 13 year old I'm not sure about - he has autism so it's more about what he will want rather than an amount. Probably around $100 for him.

  • it's not really how much you spend on your child at xmas its more what you get your child just remember your child loves you whether you spend hardly anything or a great deal of money. Love is stronger than money xx

  • I have one child and our budget is $100 I want him to grow up knowing that Christmas is not about the gifts.

  • About 150$ per child, and I have three! It all depends on what they really want, and what they are into at the moment.

  • We have a budget of $300 for all 3 kids, for ourselves and to buy the supplies to make the in-laws and my mom gifts. We usually only spend about $50 on each child, $50 on each other, $25 on the tree and $25 on the supplies for the other gifts.

  • It varies each year.

  • They get 3 gifts each. All of their birthdays are within 8 weeks of Christmas and they get clothes, toys and other junk throughout the year.
