    My dd is getting a much needed bike, so we are spending all up about $250 on her, my son is more like $50... But they don't go short - they will get about another 10 presents from other extended family members. It's so gluttonous we prefer not too add to it.

    Santa brings practical gifts, something they need. So about $20.

    We buy a combined kid present, usually around 200-300 and we put it on laybuy this year it is a tramp, another year it was a swingset. We also give a smaller gift each which would be between 50-70.

    On my phone so can't vote, but probably around 1000 each child (2 kids, DSD1 who is 15 and DSD2 who is 5).
    The past 2 years we have gone over board with presents, but we start buying as early as march/April and putting stud away so it doesn't feel like you have spent to much. We do need to calm down though. DSD1 has about $300 worth of clothes alone that were bought at my partners tax time and put away.

    This will be the last Xmas we spend this much though, as I am due in Feb.


    sent from my iPhone, so apologies for the typos!

    We go a bit crazy at Christmas, i've spent at least $500 on my DD and it will all be coming from Santa. I will tell her as she gets older that we help Santa with the presents so she never thinks we don't get her presents for Christmas lol but right now she's only 16 months so she doesnt quite understand just yet!

    You know it does sound huge but I also know that my parents used to spend at least $500 on my sis and me (each that is) at Christmas. I know one year I picked a $700 CD player and still got quite a few other gifts to open....we also got presents from each other (me to my sis and vice versa) plus grandparents, aunty's, uncles etc. Seriously, Christmas was THE BEST and I'm not a spoiled brat just because I was spoiled at Christmas and either is my sister!
