    Prob spent $500 all up on Santa (throughout the year) for two kids, so about 250 each.

    ETA misunderstood 2nd option - you meant how much spend on pressies from parents. $15 each - got them a new dress each. Santa gets all the credit in this house.

    Around $400 for 3 children this year. Previous years I have spent more and less, depends on what they want/need and how much $$ we have available.

    ETA - I should add, all presents come from Santa in our household. They have plenty of time to grow up, once that happens the presents will come from us.

    last year between santa and us we spent $4.(second hand trike)

    This year Santa has got DS a scooter ($115) and some stocking fillers (around $50) and we got him some train tracks $50.

    We don't buy toys any other time of the year, apart from b'day.

    We spend roughly $300 per child. However this year DD1 is getting a concert ticket which cost $140 and that is not being included as part of her total, so probably $450ish on her all up this year.

    And it was only just her birthday on the 13th! Oh to be a kid again!

    ETA - our gifts are all from Santa
