Re: s/o: what is your budget for DC bday present?

Wow. I'm feeling rather cheap. I have to say we usually manage to spend under $25 on our kids birthdays. And we don't do parties anymore. Just something as a family. They can decide on what they want for dinner and what cake they want.

Re: s/o: what is your budget for DC bday present?

I have 10 neices and nephews so I have to be cheap :lol:

For my DC, I spend $75 each...for the neices and nephews $10 each. I just have a lot of them. For Christmas I raise the nieces and nephews up to $15 and my DC go to $100-$125 ea.

Heck even my MIL only spends $15 on her own kids

Re: s/o: what is your budget for DC bday present?

$50 for each girl...at least that's my "limit" I think at Christmas I ended up spending about $75 on each and then bought a few things for them to share. I did good for DD's bday though, bought one small toy and a few new outfits and 2 cloth diapers.

Re: s/o: what is your budget for DC bday present?

I don't have a budget

I just buy a gift depending on how liberal I'm feeling with my money during that point in time.

Sometimes it's $20.

sometimes it's $50.

Sometimes it's $5.

Re: s/o: what is your budget for DC bday present?

We spend 200 on our nine year old and so far nothing on dd2. DD1 now has a choice does she want a party or does she want a gift. So for the past 4 years we have had a party and we end up spending 200. One year we had a princess party invited 9 girls and parents, pony party invited 12 kids and parents, tea party invited 12 girls and parents, and and ice skating party invited 9 girls. So, we never actually got her a gift and she knows that the party is her gift. This year we will have a party and ask her friends not to bring a gift.(by her choice)

MY budget- $50-100... DH's budget $300-500...... the man has serious spoiling issues- he grew up poor and wants the kids to have anything and everything under the sun. He went to TRU the other day and came home with an inflatable jump thingie for DS (you know the kind like at carnivals that the motor is constantly running?)
