That is exactly what I do--add it to the list and ONLY give gifts on birthday and Christmas. We give each child 1-2 gifts for birthdays and 3 (like Jesus got) for Christmas. Usually spend $50 for birthday and $100 for Christmas for each child. Our spending limits we have are by choice, not necessity.

We don't gift to anyone except our kids, our parents, and DH and I. Same thing--by choice, not necessity.
