$300 per kid is reasonable, I think. They get one big gift and about 4-5 filler gifts (to make the tree look full).

Some VERY good friends of ours asked how much we spend, and they are close so I felt comfortable sharing. They then proceeded to criticize us for SPOILING our kids, and then went on to say that the wifes parents get everything on their kids x-mas list... they don't spend a DIME!

Fucking good for you! But don't bash me for BUDGETING!

Geeze! I wanted to smack their faces!

I dont tell anyone how much I spend on anything...on here or in real life. I dont care how close I am with someone.

I was raised you dont talk about money....how much you have or dont have.

We got 15 gifts for each kid and spent more than $300.

 Good lord, it's bad enough that people become so materialistic during this holiday, there's no need to turn it into some kind of competition on top of that.

My parents use to spend around 1000 a piece on my sister and I.. they started saving directly after Christmas so they could give us a good Christmas we would get 1 big gift several medium gifts and about 15 small gifts. Its something I plan on doing with my DD next year this year and last year we couldn't really afford to do much of anything
