Well the adult children did not get anything. We spent for christmas about 50 bucks on grandchild. He got 2 CARS toys and a really cool helicopter. DD chose a hand cream and a hand sanitizer for her brother (adult) who likes to wash hands alot. My mom sent me a winter coat and electronic monopoly game and gave bf a 50 dollar gift card even though she isnt too fond of him. For us it depends on occasions how much we will spend for gifts.
Grown kids..$20-$30...Grandkids..Most anything they want and I can afford
Thanks for answering. I usually give our son and his wife about $50 and now my DGD is grown with a 2 year old so for Christmas I sent her $150 for both of them. Her birthday was yesterday and I sent her $50. I just don't want to be cheap but don't have a lot. DH is retired and I'm disabled so we're on a fixed income.
After we were grown and married my parents bought us one gift each and didn't usually spend over $50 per person if that much. We were always happy with what they gave us but told them many times it was our turn to buy for them. We didn't have a lot of money growing up but always have lots of gifts under the tree. Lapcounter, you got some very nice gifts. Thanks for your input.
My kids are 25 and 27 and it depends. It depends on what we want to get them really. We usually give cash for birthdays...sometimes $100, sometimes more. One year we bought our son new tires for his car for his birthday...one year we got him a smoker to smoke meats on.
We got both of them laptops for Christmas one year. This past Christmas we got them each a Kindle.
During all the Christmas posts I saw time again how "Christmas should be for kids". Well...they are still MY kids.
They both have good jobs but wont usually buy themselves anything they dont need. So we buy them things WE think they might want. They are always grateful.
Chirstmas Kids only about $60 per child.
