I have 2 kids my SIL has one, should I double her kids presents?

Posted by   + Show Post

We usually spend $50 on the kids. But because I have two and she has one, should I spend more than the $50 since she is having to spend $100 on my kids????

 If it were me....Yes.  I would spend a little more than $50 as long as I had the money.

We don't have a price limit in our family - we all understand that finances are tight and we get what we can.  For example, my husband and I are getting my nieces and nephews Chinese Red Envelopes (my hubby is from Taiwan) with $5 each inside.  Chinese Christmas for all! ;P

No, but if you have a good relationship and want to be nice you could tell her she could split the 50 between your 2 kids.

We spend $50 on gifts for each child. So, i spend fifty dollars on my nephew, and my sister spends fifty dollars on my son. If either of us had another child, we would spend fifty dollars on that child's presents too.

Good grief I've never spent that much on nieces or nephews and I wouldn't think of expecting double for my only child as opposed to my sister's and inlaws having more children.  I have never paid more than $30 for gifts and I have found some very creative gifts.   3d jigsaw puzles, even a jigsaw puzzle that once together was a crossword puzzle.  No you don't get an only child double simply because you have another child (unless that only child has multiple personalities LOL)
