    $15 worth in her stocking, about $100 under the tree. I've been buying stuff gradually since March so it hasnt been an issue.

    We dont worry about cost. We try to limit to 4 presents. It hasnt worked well this year (DS2s first xmas). DS1 has 10 this year, DS2 has 6. We've spent approx $500 (i think Santa has $100 of that)

    I guess DS gets a few secondhand toys throughout the year with my mum working at Vinnies. I try to keep them for Christmas, but DS is so tall and smart, he can see and get everything anywhere.
    Again, Im blessed he's only just 2. He doesn't know who Santa is yet. I haven't been brainwashing him with everything Christmas and Santa over the last few months like a friend of mine did with her 11 month old. He knows exactly who Santa is and what he does best, giving presents to little kids

    Our kids get a stocking stuffed with goodies from Santa that costs about $50 each, except DS1's which was about $100.
    The stuff under the tree is from DF and I and we spent about $600 on each child except DD2 who's just a bubba and came in at about $200.

    My kids don't get anything at all throughout the year, except a small gift for birthdays so we go all out at Xmas. Plus they're older now so it's more expensive stuff like mobile phones, iPods etc.

    I think we spent about $500 all up on both kids, which is the most we have ever spent... They are getting a lot for that though.

    Hmm, I don't know the exact figure, really. DD1 I think we spent about $300 on as us, not much as Santa. DD2 we didn't spend that much on, probably $150 as us, and again not much as Santa.

    Both kids will get a stocking from Santa full of toys, books, swimmers, clothes, pj's, craft stuff etc and I probably spent $100-200 each. I just can't help myself!!

    This year we also bought them a cubby from us which cost $530 including postage. We probably wouldn't spend that every year though.

    This year DD is getting a trampoline so we spent a little extra. We put it on layby in the toy sales in the middle of the year. So its slowly been paid off.

    I spend another $90 on DD. (All up my shopping was $150 for DD, my niece and nephew)

    This is probably the cheapest Christmas so far! We are trying to save for baby plus all DD wanted was a Necklace........

    really thats is.... I ran like 30 other things by her and she didnt want any of it. So i just hope she likes the stuff we got her.

    Santa = $20 (3 wooden peg puzzle boards, 10 cars - all found on sale)

    We are Hindu and don't 'do' Christmas but we will be spending the day with nephews so wanted him to have something to open as he does understand the concept of presents ... He'll also be spoilt rotten by family ...
