I just spent $500 this past weekend on my dd's 12th bday. But it did include One Direction tickets.

Depends on what they ask for. We only do a huge party every other year too. I spent $100 on gifts and $150 on my sons party in jan.

When they were two years old we spent less than a hundred for sure.

Now we spend between $100 and $200 on birthdays. That includes a family outing like to the zoo or bowling type stuff.

I spend anywhere between $150-$200.

They also have to choose between a party with friends or a big gift.

We have a party at the house every year for the kids and spend anywhere between $150-200 I would say including gifts from us.

I really don't know as far as gifts because her birthday is February 1st so we just buy birthday and Christmas gifts together and then choose which we will use for which.  I know this year it is around $150 at least for gifts because we got her two Lego Friends sets, A Go-Go My Walking Pup, and other things.  If you're including party this year the rental of the place is $100 and then we will be doing food, cake, and ice cream for everyone.
