  • probably about $100 but it will probably be much less this year. We already bought a $40 kitchen as her big gift and I really don't think we'll spend more than another $40 on her.

  • Every year I say not as much this time but I always end up spending about 200 each. My kids are 2 and 3 and so I try to buy big things because they have every other toy you could imagine. I've already spent 200 each this year and I'll probablly get even more before xmas gets here.

  • This year we spent about $250.00 on both boys, The baby we only bought her a cabbage patch and a few rattles because she wont have any clue whats going on anyway. We usually do about $400.00-$500.00 a peice but this year $ is tight. They wouldnt even have gotten what they did but I had my shopping done in September before things got tight for us.

  • We have 5 kids to buy for. The 2 older ones are greedy and picky right down to colors and counting pages in coloring books. No matter how we've tried to teach them that gifts are not what Christmas is about it's still hard. This year though they have a new thing coming. It has always been tight $ wise no matter what is going on in the economy. This year though I'm buying little things from the dollar stores and that's a $10 limit per kid. Then they will each get one big gift. And it is not all going to be the same for each because they are not the same. $ 25 limit for that. That makes 11 gifts at only $35. Our kids age range from 13 yrs- 6 months.
