  • We have a lot of people to buy for. Our three kids, each other, 11 nieces and nephews, two sets of parents, dh's sister and her husband, two grandparents. We also have two family gift exchanges and a couple of friends we exchange gifts with. So we spend a lot it seems.

    My guess is $500-650 depending on the year. I have been shopping for months, so we are not strapped right at Christmas time.

  • I still have not started shopping. I am going to start on the 15th and when I get paid on the 18th. I'm thinking about $200 per child, maybe less.

  • Grand total - probably less than $200 - we spend about $20 per family of extended family and about $5-10 on each of our four children.

  • Our cap this year is $100 per kid. We will probably be around $300-400 by the time we are done with everyone.
