This year I really cut it down. I was able to get a few gifts each, plus stocking stuffers for under $200 each. I did the want, need, wear, read idea. Ended up with two wants really, plus a santa gift. But everyone is getting two full outfits and PJs for the wear. I can wait for them to open their reads, got some classics.

100 for toys
100 for clothes per child.



My budget's always been 100 for toys every year then I spend whatever's necessary for clothes.

Around 300. I think we went a little overboard...but as long as she's happy, I'm happy lol :) But she's getting a ton from our families,and I have no idea how I'm going to fit it all in the house...I've been slowly getting rid of old toys she doesn't use anymore, but still lol

Quoting Bogey Woman:" I don't really do a dollar amount, my son gets one big gift and then a ton of smaller ones. Though if I had to ballpark it, I'd say I spent about 150 on him."


I dont do dollar amounts either, i had to add it up. lol. I asked him what he wanted and he mainly just wanted items like new boots, a new cowboy hat, spurs for his boots, a bb gun, etc. He didnt ask for ANY toys. So I got him those items and then some toys that i knew he'd like even though he didnt ask for them. i also got him bb's and targets for his stocking to go with his gun.

Tea sets are awesome, My daughter got one last year, and she's been playing with it ALL year, almost on a daily basis. :)

An unlimited amount, there's no set dollar. We just buy them whatever we want. DD only has 3 gifts that total $500. DS1 has more gifts that total $300. We bought DS2 2 gifts, but spent under $100. Not including any stocking stuffers.

Don't feel bad, we spent less than 50.00 total - people go way overboard, it's ridiculous.

You don't try to keep their gifts even? Do they not get upset by one getting more than the other?
