    I don't count so I'll have to figure it out... lol.

    ... it was about $150 (inc. about $40 postage) for most of her stuff from Amazon from Santa.

    Then about $85 from me (2 large book sets and some bendy dolls from Etsy)

    Santa $30, actually Santa did stocking fillers this year so about $50-$60.

    Us -about $800+. We got DD a wooden outdoor play set though. It's not a normal every year amount.

    I don't have a set price just buy her what she wants/needs. She gets everything she want through th year so Christmas is just usually craft and clothes.

    crap i buggered up lol, i clicked 50-100 santa but meant it all up per child.
    santa is giving the kids $20 each to take to bali for spending money in early jan

    we've spent under $100 per child this year purely because they couldn't think of anything the wanted and i dont want to waste money just for the sake of it..
    actually just remembered my dad put $500 towards a wooden swing set/cubby/slide thingo hubs put up last night for christmas, we put in the remaining $300 so we did go over $100 each kidlet after all!

    We don't have presents from Santa and parents. I just wrap all the presents with their name on them and put them under the tree. For 3 children I think I've spent $1000 but in all fairness we don't have any family, so other then presents from us they get maybe 3 or 4 other small presents from family friends.

    And also wanted to add that my oldest 2 are not getting a toy between them as they don't play with any that they have.
    They are getting bathers, towels, sheets and quilt covers, a hand made doll each, a hand made dress each, books, craft boxes and board games.
    DS1 is getting a little people zoo which will be the only toy under the tree.

    We spent a total of $600 on our 3 children ($400 of that was a trampoline, only $200 on other stuff), so if you divide that by 3 then it works out to be $200 each from the $600 total (or $65 each from the $200 total).

    We don't do Santa, so Santa = $0

    This year, nothing unfortunately it will go to groceries as my pay has gone missing from last month.
    My parents bought him a scooter thoughT that was $19,95 and that is why I ticked the Santa <$20,- box.

    I voted for this year only. I have one child and this year she has $40 woth of things in her stocking, which includes some pool toys, swimwear, a nighty she was after, bubbles, a pack of knickers, a tub of gluten free, vegan lollies, and a small toy. From me it's about $50 which includes 4 DVDs, 2 books and a new pair of earrings. She is 8 now, but for her first Christmas she was 4 months old and got some singlets, a set of pyjamas, a pair of togs and a board book in her stocking from Santa, and a set of clam shell and a walker from me, so about $30 for her stocking and $70 from me. About the same for her second Christmas, too. But then for her third Christmas until her 8thh she has had either membership to somewhere, a trip somewhere, something big for outdoors, movie tickets, games, etc which meant she would have about $30-$50 from Santa then $300 or so from me. But what she got from me (other than movie tickets) would be suitable for 3+ kids. So it depends on what she wants/beeds at the time. We still have the clam shells, she has.a pool, sandpit, swingset, slide, bike, scooter, skateboard, rollerblades, new bookshelf, new toybox, this year there isn't much she needs or wants.
