When you are shopping for Christmas gifts for your children do you set a dollar amount for each
or a specific number of gifts for each child?
I don't my kids are pretty easy in the things they usually want for Christmas. I do a lot of the little things they like usually thing between 10 and 25 dollars. Then I get them one big gift something they have wanted and may or may not have put it on their Christmas list. This gift I usually hide and trick them into finding it some how and sign this one from Santa. It is a fun thing.
Thanks lilibees I find this to be the challenging part of my shopping. Christmas morning is pretty fast around here but once they start comparing notes is when I here the questions of why so n so got more gifts. Actually quite irritating when so n so's gifts cost half of what the others got. Hoping to hear advice on keeping everyone pleased. LOL like I can ever do that!!
I can not answer the question in full as I only have one child (makes life easy), but I know my mum always looks to spend the same on both me and my brother, even though we are both grown up now.
I usually set an amount for other children in the family though, aiming at £15 but spending no more than £20 on each child.
It is difficult to please everyone, but I think as long as the christmas spirit is there and people get what they wish for (within a little) then everyone should be happy.

Have you reduced your spending on Christmas gifts this year because of the economic situation?The news does not seem to be improving, so how much impact has it had on your spending for Christmas? Are you shopping less, or buying from cheaper places, or does it not matter at all?
