How much do the grandparents spend for Christmas on your child?

I am just curious. I see alot of questions about how much we as parents will spend. How much do your children get from grandparents? Is it the same as you spend or less? Or more?

  • I'm answering anon on this one b/c I know it's outrageous, but so far my parents have spent about $1,500 on our two girls and they're wanting to buy even more. DH and I had set a limit (for ourselves) to spend about $500 on each girl. I've tried talking to my parents about this, but it never ends well. I'd rather them put the money to their retirement.

  • I think my parents spent about $150 on each kid this year. My mother in law spends what she can.

  • Well my mom just ordered my kids their xmas gifts. A table and chair set for my son, and an activity seat/booster seat for my daughter... it totaled $150.00.. Last year, they sent a $100 gift cert for my son. My IL's sent hime a box full of toys. We're not really big on gifts, so our parents usually spend more than we do on xmas.

  • I spend alot on my kids for christmas and my parents and inlaws spend alot. Their "real" paternal grandparents dont even send a christmas card, which is why everyone else goes a bit overboard. Id say about $100-$150 a child.

  • Usually about $100 a kid but this is a bad year for both sets of grandparents and I have told them not to worry about it, they will still send something it just won't be as much.
