  • Our Budget is 1500 - saved from our taxes the year before. We buy for our two kids, each other, my DH family and my family out of that. About 700 of that is spent on just our kids ;o)

  • 1000 plus for our daughter and family. We have a large family.

  • For the kids no more than 300 total or 100 a piece, we have 3 kids and 2 are still under 2 so they dont care much about gifts yet. No more than 100 total for the rest of the family. We live on a tight budget.

  • 300 for my three kids.

  • I would say we spend between $800 and $1,000, between the two kids, each other and parents/siblings. But we pay cash for everything as well

  • Ever since Our Son's first Christmas, my Husband and I have spent between $200 and $300 on His Christmas gifts. I'm sure that amount will increase after another year or two (Our Son is nearly 3 1/2 now). =]

  • I would estimate somewhere between 250 and 450 total. But we don't have a lot of people to buy gifts for.
