I always spend the same amount on my son and daughter-in-law. I wouldn't spend more on my son than I do my daughter-in-law.

Neither of my kids are married.  I try to spend the same amount of $$ on each of them.  I don't buy anything for my daughter's BF or my son's GF.

I have a very large family and therefore I am on a very tight budget.  I tried very hard to see to it that I spent the same amount on all of them.

I actually do spend a little less on my children's SO's than I do on my own children.  That said, many of the gifts I give my own children are "family or joint" gifts (movie passes, restaurant GC's, games), so it probably evens out in the end.

I spend  a little more on my kids.  No DIL yet, I will spend almost as much on them when I acquire one.

Have no son in laws yet. Would probably spend about the same. I am, and never will be the person that makes sure I have spent the same amount or the same amount of packages. I buy what someone needs or wants.
