How much do you spend on Christmas Gifts? I set aside 500 and  I will probably have to add another 200 to that.  Christmas is expensive!

Usually I spend about $1200 on Christmas gift for the 5 people to shop for. I usually go the cheap cheap on my sister and brother in law. They always give the sheittiest gifts so I don't spend a lot on them. This year we pulled names so no individual gifts for each person in the fam... just one gift from whoever pulled your name this time around and luckily I pulled my brother in laws name lmfao BIL's gift<$50

aint nobody getting shyt except for my momma and my elderly aunt

I normally do not have any type of budget.  i buy others what i know they want.  I really do enjoy watching folks open my gifts and their actions show they are genuinely grateful/happy by what i brought.  I have brought shoes, ipods & ive even given a laptop.

Man I got my little sister some Beats for Christmas and she's already in my ear about what she wants for Graduation.
Everybody is is gonna suffer bc of her.

Well except my nephew Pee Pee I'm still getting him the Dr. Seuss book collection .

All the older folk gifts will be adjusted and amended.

I'm buying my bro a laptop...that's like 90% of my budget right there (I'm looking for a good deal), I plan to go half with mother for the rest of my family.
Maybe $500-600, if I can get a good computer cheap (less than 300).

i dont usually just set aside an amount.. 
it just depends on what i have, what i feel like spending, and who i feel like spending on.. 
My bday is close so im usually buying things for myself. 

last year i only gave like 2 ppl gifts. 
but this year i will get something for my aunt (40 max, idk what..) 
my cousin (she doesnt have a limit, she wants boots and bath stuff) 
my little cousin (40 max. she wants a skateboard.. i will also get her either kneepads or lip glosses.. idk about the gloss though cus she wanted my fav ysl glosses and now she doesnt even know where they are)
my gram (she has no limit.. but idk wtf im getting her.. i dont have time to make a wig happen, im thinking botox)
i will probably get my other little cousin some dunks or jordans.. 
and i might get my other aunt something.. thats it.

I spend alot, but I put it in the budget during the whole year. I have a huge family and it's expected that everybody buys for everybody. I'm no mad though. I love shopping for them.

I feel like I am spending a lot but its really not considering I don't do birthdays.  It just feels extravagant to spend so much.  The people receiving the gifts will be happy so that's all that matters I suppose.

Now, if i can just think of what to get my mother I will be all set.

This year, I don't have a budget but it's going to be pretty lean. I'm just buying for my husband and my niece, and his 3 nieces and nephew. His nieces/nephew might get monopoly or some ish like that...all their presents end up at the pawn shop. Last yr we got them a Wii...2wks later their father pawned it Cry

my niece, idk what I'm getting. I'll probably spend some money on her, though.

Ooooooh their daddy woulda had a well-whipped ass. I can't stand people who take others' gifts for their kids for their own benefit.

Anyway, I get so few people gifts, that I don't really have a budget. I'd rather just get them something I know they want. Luckily none of them have ever asked for anything more than $100, except my mama, but that's understandable.

I think it's just kinda hard for us close to Xmas bday ppl to get good stuff cus everyone has to most likely buy several gifts.. Along with two+ gifts for us..

yep

I was wondering why you don't list your siblings as well

they don't get gifts for christmas...i do buy them/give them my old stuff year round so they never feel deprived/left out. i just gave the little one a pair of uggs like 2 weeks ago.

im the present giver. mre is bad at it. his gifts are practical...like stock. sigh. throw in a trinket sir.
