  • If you have the money why not. If I had 1000.00 I would spend it on my son.

  • Depends. We've never spent more that $50-$75 on each child. Personally, I would never spend that much on 1 child but hey, whatever floats your boat.

  • It really depends on what you're getting for the $400. If that's $400 worth of cheap toys from WalMart, yes. If it's something big like a computer or a bike and a few smaller things, it's reasonable.

  • It depends on your personal finances, what you can afford. If it won't affect your ability to pay your bills, contribute to savings & give to charity than go for it.

  • It depends on if you can afford it. As long as you have that much to spend without stressing your self financially i don't see a problem with it..The thing I hate is people like my sister who spends her December rent money on Christmas presents...

  • Depends...if they are are young, then that might be a bit much, but if they are a teen or older their stuff costs a lot more so that would be more ideal if you spent that much.

  • If you can afford it I guess go for it. I don't see the point in spending that much on one child though.
