    Santa $100-150 per child.

    Us - $0

    Every couple of years budget will shoot up to accommodate a big purchase, a trampoline or wii for example.

    Santa - a budget up to $250 for each child (we have 3) but we don't have to reach that, we just don't exceed it, well not at the ages they are yet anyway I have no problem making it more than that when they're older and want more expensive gifts.

    I also have 2 Nov babies and a Sept baby and our birthday budget is around the $100-$150 mark but this year one Nov child was $50 and one was $75. Sept child we spent about $200 on for her birthday this year. It really does just depend on what they're asking for and as long as it's not hugely over budget or something we don't want them to have (like a tv for their room, or a game console etc.) then we're pretty good to go.

    Santa up to $50
    Parents up to $200

    So about $250 per child but that includes their daddy's money and they still give them extra presents.

    From me around $150 per child - maybe a bit more.
    Santa, so he tells me, spends around $80 each.

    He tells me lots of things when he's drunk. The man can't hold his grog hey. That's what you get when you normally only have elves to drink with I guess...

    Santa - about $60 each, sometimes more, sometimes less.
    Us - depends on what they're getting as to how much we spend. Eg: this year I spent $150 max on DD2, $200 max on DSS and probably closer to $300 on DD1, but last year DSS had a lot more spent on him, DD1 not as much and I spent about $100 on DD2. They get 4 presents each from us and I work out what I want to get them based upon what they're into and what I think they'll like, so the amount I spend varies from year to year and child to child.

    No Santa here! DS and DD are too old.

    We have spent about $400 per child... But I totally blame DH because he can't control himself! Sometimes Im left wondering if some of his ideas are more for him
