How much do you spend for Christmas gifts ? How many people do you buy for?

( For those who DO buy gifts!) We,(hubby & I) spend the most on our son, & eachother, then, we usually buy the immediate family alittle something. Overall, we try not to spend over $300. Some years, it's been alot less. We usually buy for about 8 people.

  • Lets see. We generally do about $150-200 on our son and then about $100-150 for everyone else because we make a lot of gifts and we get things on sale early! We shop for about 7 people aside from our son. Last year we had our nephew too, this year our niece and the new baby. It will be a little harder to balance this year as we now have two of our own children to spoil. We spoil our children on holidays, I know!

  • I do pictures for most family. Thats about $100 for all and then we spend about $100-$200 a piece on our 4 kids. More for the older ones and less for the younger ones.
