    I am guessing I've spent about $300ish on each kid.
    We have halved our income this year so they aren't getting a usual big/expensive gift just a lot of stocking fillers ( they have 25-30 individual gifts each)

    It will be weird for them to not have a big gift on Xmas day:/

    From us they're either getting $30 movie gift voucher & lollies each or a board game & lollies each.

    Writing it down like that I feel slack😞

    Total is about $800 but thats for 2 big lego sets($100ish each) plus smaller sets. Also bought a wii plus 4 games(games were between $60-$90 each), dvd series he likes, nerf gun, angry birds board games, clothes, swimmers and a pool(still have to buy swimmers, pool and clothes but everything else is currently on layby which i will pick up closer to christmas which will prolly be christmas eve). Also just need a chocolate stocking, new art stuff like colouring books and paints etc

    I spent way more than i wanted but i am happy with what he is getting and he will def be kept occupied over the holidays while i work.

    We don't spend too much on chrissie, maybe $100-$200 max? 1st Christmas DS got a jumeroo which was $170? And last year he got small things. I think just some clothes and books and a couple of toys.

    This year I'm hoping to turn this cabinet Into a little play kitchen can't wait to get started! it's been raining a lot here in Sydney and I don't have a garage to work in. This week is sunny but DH needs to help me and he has to work don't even know if I'll get it finished or not

    About $500 between the two younger ones, although I put a layby on mid-year and pay it off in installments.

    I give my big girl cash, usually $200 or so.

    About 250 so far, including a big $150 present. I'll probably buy a few more little things

    Mm we don't have a set amount.

    This year DS is getting buzz, woody, duplo (120 total) + smaller things for stocking 100-150.
    DD is getting activity table, alphabet abacus & fp talking mirror (60 total) plus smaller things for stocking 50-100.
    They are also getting a little paddling pool as a joint present.

    So all up around $500.
