  • Most yrs, I don't, I usually just spend around $300 on the kids (2 boys). This yr, I've been out of work since June, so I don't have a lot of money. I actually only have about $150 to spend on them. But, I did some research and price comparing, and got them quite a bit for that small amount, and I think they'll be pleased.
