It totally depends on the year. Some years have been much more generous than others. We try to limit the number of gifts per child to three each plus a stocking. Both sets of grandparents are really generous, and it would be really overwhelming if we did more than that. But the expense of each of those items varies. It's interesting, because I've noticed that the kids are equally happy when we spend a little as when we spend a lot. I think that sometimes parents put more pressure on themselves to go over the top than they really need to.
we spend about 1000.00$. we start buying things around october.
Well I don't have many people to buy for anymore....
