$900 for 4 kids?

I am thinking about spending around $900 on all four kids for Christmas. I really hope I don't go over this amount. I hate when my savings gets too low. 

But that will put both little kids at around 8 presents each (give or take) and a couple stocking stuffer presents (small ones I like to put in the stockings)

Then both teens will get 3 to 4 presents each and will each get a $100 gift card. Their presents will be stuff they either asked for or stuff I know they want/like. 

Does this seem reasonable?

More than reasonable by my standards, as long as you can afford it.

Some moms exagerrate so much. How is 900$ not enough for 4kids? What the hell do you buy them to spend 900$ on them. Its like me saying "ohh is 10000000 enough for my two kids?" What the hell. You know what enough or not. Stop asking us. And if you wouldnt spoil your kids so much you wouldnt have to go over tour budget. 900 is more than enough. Some kids dont even get nothing .

I'm just asking.  I feel it's a bit much actually.

And my kids don't get anything during the year except for necessities... If they want something, we make them earn it (even the younger kids, they have extra chores to do to earn an allowance). They only get birthdays and christmas to look forward to each year when it comes to getting stuff from me as a gift.

See, neither teen has really told me what they wanted. Maybe one item each. So I have decided to buy the item they each want (which is inexpensive thank God), and a couple other little things, then give them money to go shopping with. Who doesn't want money? lol

Yes but I hate gift cards they are so unpersonal. I would skip it and buy them a few extra presents.
