    If you look at my forehead, I have "SUCKER" written on it. I spend around $30.

    I spend $20. Unless they are my dd best friend and there is something particular they'd like and then I might go to $30.

    We also do a homemade card and wrapping paper from the $2 shop because otherwise the present budget gets blown.

    I do this for his close friends, but this little girl invited the entire class (very nice of her). She and my ds rarely play together.

    I spent $20 not including a card.

    That's enough right??

    Ditto.

    And I buy $1 cards and wrap. I'm not spending an extra $10 on Hallmark stuff that will get thrown out.
