  • I spend way to much through out the year and double that during xmas, I probably sadly spent atleast $350.00 on my 4 year old..

  • It depends on the year and how old the kids are. Last year we spent $100 on the two of our toddlers combined and $100 on our oldest who was 10. This year we are spending about a $100 on each of the little ones and $150 on our 11 year old. We are only able to do that because my dh got a great raise a few months ago and we have more money this year.

    Two years ago we spent $20 on the baby, $40 on the 2 year old and $60 on the 9 year old. It just depends on the year.

  • We spend quit a bit on our boys, but it does vary from year to year. I would say we spent 500.
