I have 28 people on my Christmas list and managed to keep my spending under $500. And everyone on my list is getting VERY nice things.

 LOL Right? I am laughing, but it is more of a nervous "Oh my god we are so screwed when shit hits the fan" kind of laughter.

I wish we had $1000 saved back lol...we ran into money issues and barely could spend $350 on the kids this year. We had planned on saving back $1000-1500 for Christmas. Oh well, maybe next year. Lol that is still like $140 for each person. Make it stretch. You can always make it up to them on their birthdays if it bothers you.

 If it's an issue, don't exchange gifts with your husband (assuming that its 2 adults included in your seven).  You should be okay.  I only spent 130.00 for my son.
