  • I don't really pay attention, and neither do they. They are just excited to get their stuff. I figure if I don't point it out, neither will they. And a lot of the toys they get end up being community toys anyway.

  • They will get one or two gifts for Yule each, one or two gifts for Christmas each, and they will also get a "shared gift" for each holiday as well. We don't really pay attention to what we spend. And we do our best not to focus on the gifting aspect of the holidays as much as we do the family aspects...

    Plus this year they are getting a baby sister...

  • This year it will be 3 gifts each 2 from us and 1 from Santa. I'll spend about 40.00 on each of our five kiddos

  • I have two kids, each getting 6 things. The amount spent on each is different, a 5 year olds toys are more expensive then a 1 year olds. So about 220 between the 2.

  • this year is tight so we have set a 50$ limit for each kiddo. however many they get with that is it. my 12 year old just wants a mall gift card, so that will be her only gift from us.
