First Christmas with two kids...

Do you get the same amount of gifts and comparable to each other for each of your kids??

This is my first Xmas with two kids and I got them both two toys each and one article of clothing each.

We have a big family so I know they're going to get many more toys.

How do you handle it if you have multiple kids??

I give myself a budget for each kid, then I make sure they have the same amount of gifts to open.  This year I was WAY under budget and they still got an awesome amount of gifts.

No idea how other people do it, but if I ever have two kids (I have one at the moment) I will probably spend an equal amount. Asking for different things is fine, but I will not allow one kid to have 500.00 for Christmas and the other one 150.00. We'd have to be able to afford both of their presents while not jipping one of them.

But, for example, let's say your budget is $50 per kid. Do you get them each one gift that equals $50 or would you get one a $50 gift and the other five $10 gifts?? Know what I mean??

I don't really worry about it. I feel like it evens out in the end.

Since our baby is only 5 months, I spent more on the older kid.

Hey it's my first with two kids too! :) I'm spending the same amount on them. My dd is 4 and my SOs son is 2. They're both getting one big gift (little workshops) a learning game, a few random toys, and some clothes :)
