Christmas Shopping

Hey ladies. Just wondering how much you spend on your kids each Christmas. DS is almost 10 months old so this is his first Christmas. He is also my first kid. I spent about $170 dollars on him (not including a $50 dollar donation to Toys for Tots). Just wondering what everyone else spends/spent.

  • I don't keep track. I just buy what I want to buy. My dd is also ten months old. I don't think I want to know the dollar amount lol.

  • This year my DD is going to be 19 months at Christmas, so its the first one she will be able to enjoy and participate in...
    And yes, we spoil our little girl. We have already spent close to $800 on her Christmas presents, and we arent done yet. We have been buying her presents all year. With every paycheck, we buy her a toy or two... and we save up some money all year, so we can blow it all on her toys, and have them stacked to the ceiling on Christmas morning. :)
    But thats just us, and what we are capable of doing right now.

  • uhhhh that's a lot! My daughter was almost 1 on her first xmas and turned 1 right after xmas. She played more with an empty bottle of sprite then with any toy anyone got her. I've probably spent $40 and that's more than I even wanted to! My dad told me the other day that she is 2 and won't remember what we bought her so why buy so many things? It made a lot of sense to me. We got her some books and puzzles but I hated all these random toys people bought her that she played with once and just cluttered our house. No more senseless toys in our house!!

  • eh...we've spent around $120 or less our two year old this year. Power wheels 6 volt quad $40, vtech Kiddicam $19, Pop up play tent/tunnel $14, jammies, slippers, couple other small things. Oh and Shrek 4, she loves the shrek movies. I don't think we spent quite as much on her last year. Actually I don't even remember what we got her last year. A lot of clothes, some books, and some very small toys I think. This year MIL has spent at least $120 on her as well though, plus whatever she gets from my mom, my Dad, my grandparents, etc...spoiled ass kid. geez.

  • When my kids were little we spent about $100 each on them..I have 3 children. Now that they are older they want more expensive things so it really depends on what they ask for. This year we spent a little more because DD has been in and out of the hospital and we missed our vacation so we used some of that money for Christmas.

  • um... I don't really know?! We kinda just bought stuff here and there. We definately didn't go over $200 though and most of it is clothing because she's only 4 months old, she's not gonna remember any of it, and she needs clothing for in a few months when she outgrows what she's wearing now!
