  • 100 for each child. My youngest one is eight now. He understands the price concept. He may get 5 while another gets 7, depends on price.

  • We usually by as many gifts we can with $100.00 per child, sometimes it depends. This year we spend a little more because my DD was in the hospital for 2 months and we missed our vacation. She is still not better and has been in and out of the hospital two more times since the first time. I am not sure how much we are spending this year, it depends on what the kids want.

  • It varies from year to year depending on our budget. This year we bought each child 6 gifts and spent about $80-$90 per child including stocking stuffers.

  • We have 3 kids & spend about $400 for each child. They don't have the same # of presents because the older they get the more expensive they tend to be so the way it worked out this year the oldest got the least and the youngest got the most.

  • Now I don't feel bad ( I feel normal).... I thought I was the one who was crazy when my cousin told me she spends at least $1000 per child. I thought about $100 to $200 was about right.
