  • I'm going to try and keep it somewhere in the range of $75 to $100 this year I think.

  • $200 but I suppose this number is going to increase when he starts asking for cell phones and mp3 players..

  • We have 5 kids including our son-in-law. We can easily afford $500.00- $800.00 for each one, but we never spend that much. Everyone can afford a different amount. You just need to go over your budget & set an amount that you can reasonably afford without going into debt or cutting into your living expense money.
