    Default How much do you spend on gifts?

    Except for children, I spend very little on gifts. I have spoken to my

    friends/family and we have agreed not to exchange for Christmas and

    birthdays.

    For special occasions such as weddings or showers I spend about

    $50-$100 depending on how close I am to the person.

    For children I spend $20-$30 for birthday/Christmas gifts.

    Default How much do you spend on gifts?

    what I spend usually depends on the person, and whether I have extra

    money to spend. In August, I have 1 nephew, and 2 neice birthdays,

    plus we had a brand new baby born in the middle of July. Anyway, for

    those 4 children, I got:



    1 Disney Princess "Perfume" bottle collection, on clearance for

    $4.99, then marked 50% off that- so $2.49. This is for 1 neice.



    2 Wiggles DVD's from Big Lots for $4.00 each, plus 1 Disney

    Popscicle maker and a set of Thomas the Train wall stickers both

    from Dollar Tree for my nephew, so $10 on him.



    1 Disney Princess "lava lamp" nightlight on clearance for $2.50 at

    an outlet shop, and a Bratz mini handheld electronic game on

    clearance for $5 at the same store for another neice.



    For the brand new neice, I found an adorable outfit on clearance at

    Kohls for $2 for summer next year, and a mini-carebear on clearance

    for $3 at n outlet store.





    That's about average for what I spend on kids- around $10 at most. I

    try not to buy cheap stuff, though, just items that are cheaper than

    they normally are. By that, I mean I'm not going to go to Big Lots

    and grab the toys that fall apart after 1 use, I'd rather spend the

    money on the stuff that's made with quality parts and what not. I

    just make sure to hit clearance racks often.





    For Christmas this year, I already have 1 blanket for all 3 of my

    children, made from soft fuzzy material (not fleece, softer, and it

    doesn't get yucky like fleece does, can't think what it's called),

    as well as a pre-school "mp3" player. It has this HUGE cartridge you

    slide into it, and HUGE headphones- on clearance for $5.80 today.

    The blankets were each $6 at Big Lots last month. A bit early, but

    by Christmas, they won't be there, and I had my pick of colors- red

    for my son, deep purple for my daughter, and bright pink for my

    younger daughter. The headset is for her, as well, because she LOVES

    listening to music.



    For adults, we all have sort of a rule (outside of parents)- don't

    buy for me, and I won't buy for you. None of us can afford it, so at

    most, we exchange cards. With parents, we always get them gifts

    anyway, and they do the same. But siblings and friends... well, we

    wish each other well, and focus on being able to pay bills and

    stuff, instead of finding some cheap item the person won't want

    anyway.

    I put an end to gift exchange with friends years ago, it was getting

    to crazy! But I think I'm going to start what my mom suggested.



    Have a friends Christmas gathering dinner. All we really want to do

    is spend time with each other so I plan to start doing this!

    Christmase theme and if you're to broke to suppy dinner, make it a

    potluck...the important thing is that you are enjoying each others

    company!
