  • I don't remember what I spent, but it all depends on what you want to buy.

  • It just depends on the gift I want to get honestly. Could be 50 could be more. For my kids first party i think I spent 120. But that was clothes, shoes, and toys.

  • At the time of my eldest's first birthday I had just left my job and we still had "disposable" cash. I spent WAY too much. I say you should spend enough on what they need and a little more for the fun stuff! With my second that's what I did. Save up for the bigger gifts when they can remember and appreciate them!

  • I have learned they wont remember a single thing about thier first birthday... It is a celebration more for the adults than the child.. I know we didnt spend to much... we also had extremely over indulgent grandparents that bought them so much they didnt even know where the new toys came from...when they are alittle older they will appreciate what you get them... plus they out grow toys and clothes very fast the first couple of years because they mature so quickly during this time...

  • It depends on who the baby is. A close relative, or a good friend's baby, or an acquaintance or neighbor. Just depends. I usually give money to be put towards college, because they usually have everything they need, and it's really for the adults.
