This year each child is getting one gift from Santa ($45) plus stocking stuffers.

Then from us they are each getting one toy, one book, and one pair of pajamas.

My parents bought them two things each (a bilibo and a bean bag each).

We exchange gifts with my parents, but not extended family as a general rule. I do have a cousin that I think I will buy for this year because she is just starting out on her own and has no support from her family.

I'm spending about $150 per child. I will spend about $200 on each of my parents. The kids is all coming from earned Amazon gift cards, so that doesn't affect our budget.

DH doesn't buy for me, ever, so I'm not going to bother getting him anything this year.

I'm tired of toys and clutter so I am being very, very deliberate with Christmas purchases.
