Do you and your SO put a spending limit on gifts for each other?

My husband and I set limits on what we can spend on Christmas gifts for each other. Last year it was $25. This year it is $50. I feel my husbands actions, rather than gifts, show me how much he loves me. One Valentine's Day I got a Love Letter. It was the BEST!!....... So, do you all set a limit? Or are you a the-more-he-spends-the better-it-will-be type of girl?

  • No, we just shop for whatever we know the other wants and needs. We don't go nuts but we both enjoy gift giving.

  • We set limits. This year we put 50 for each of us as well. It's just the two of us we both have everything we need and don't see the point in spending a ton of money for one day. We're thankful to have each other.

  • Since when been married we haven't brought each other gifts for Christmas. It dosen't bother me I rather give then recieve. We always spend our money on family.

  • Sort of, we don't buy gifts for each other, so I guess you could say our spending limit is $0.

  • We set limits of zero :) Every year, every holiday, every birthday. We only buy for the kids and we periodically surprise each other throughout the year with stuff for us.

  • We don't exchange gifts. He knows if he buys me something it better be what I want, like or need.. or it will go back orbe wasted. And the same goes for him

  • We exchange gifts but don't worry about the price limit. I can't imagine not getting him something for Christmas!
