What's your Christmas budget?

What's your dollar amount budget limit for this Christmas on gifts? And how many people do you have to buy for? I have to buy for 14 people and for close family (5 people) I'm spending about $100 on each person (a little more on hubbie) and for not so close people $50 each..

  • We have two children and spend about $250 each on them. My parent's get $100. FIL gets $50. We also have about ten other children to buy for and they get a $20-$25 gift. except for my 1yo nephew, we spend about $50 on him. After that, we spend about $100 on each other. I'm sure there are two or three more, but that's the main list. I also do a lot of homeade gifts and goodies!

    I have a huge family and in the past we've drawn names ($30 gift). This year, it's just going to be about the kids.
