How much did you spend on Christmas?

Posted by   + Show Post

Just wondering how much everyone spent on Christmas and what did you get them?

Between DH and the 2 girls I probably spent $750. Lots of crap and regret. Sigh.

So far about $30, we got dd a toy box, I gave my two best friend's canvases that I wrapped (already had those, so they were free, and dh printed the vinyl I wrapped them in). I also made hot chocolate balls for them. For the rest of the family I'm making cookies, the materials including the wrapping will probably be less than $25.

Working on lists now as I.type.... Trying to keep it under $60 for EVERYONE as money is extremely tight! & it looks like I will be able to do it! Woohoo!! A lot of it is home made so that saved a butt ton of money! Yay :)

Enough that everyone will be happy. I fill out Harris Poll surveys from time to time and recently ordered 330 in Amazon gift cards for it. They're a pain when I'm doing them but offset Christmas costs every year!

I spent under $300 for all presents including stocking stuffer.  My dd is 9 and ds is 4 and I spent maybe a $100 combined on their gifts.  Each niece/nephew gets $20 to $25 spent on them and grandparents are $25 per set.  We've really scaled Christmas back the past few years and enjoy spending time together with friends and family and moved the focus away from the presents.  My kids don't really need anything and we are so blessed that we like helping others during this time instead of overspending.
