I have 2 nephews and 2 nieces to buy for and won't have any more to have to buy for. I have always spent whatever I have wanted on them and that won't change just because I have my own kids now. I much prefer to buy them useful things that may cost a bit more than buy them cheap crap. My sil has been the same with our boys.
When it comes to buying a present for friends kids I usually spend $30 on a gift.

I aim for approx $20-$30 value each. That doesn't mean I spend that much though - if I can get something that is usually $30 for $15, then I will get that, and won't bulk it up with extras either.
I am too poor to afford to spend anymore than that.

We try to stick to as close to $50 as possible, sometimes just under, sometimes just over and this includes card and wrapping/giftbag. This is for friends kids, nieces/nephews, birthdays/Christmas except for my 1 niece who lives overseas and I haven't got to meet her yet, I spend around $150 including postage (postage it like $40!) for birthdays and Christmas as it costs too much to post too many things throughout the year

I have two nieces that are four this year, one niece that will be one this year, and two nephews that just turned seven and three.
Last year we spent about $40 on each of them except our youngest niece as she was only four months so I made some little summer outfits for her.
Everyone said we got them too much stuff but I enjoyed spoiling them.
We get everything at the mid year sales to save a bit of money.
We won't be spending much this year as we have another bub due in January and need to save up a bit.
