Just wondering how much you and dc spend on dp and vice versa?

bluedolphin the amount isn't important.

Christmas isn't about spending money.

Spend what you can afford, don't worry about what others spend.

whatever we feel like. Max £150 each, and usually much less

I spent £24 on ds (2yr), £50 on dd (4yr) and £29 on dh.

I would love some £25 shoes from dh for meee!

£50 tops per child (usually about £35-40 + stocking filler type things). They are 17, 15, 13 and 1.

About £20 each on the kids and about £40 on each other-grown up gifts just cost a bit moregrin

TBH me and dh dont really buy each other much,we spend about £250 on each of the dc (theres 3 of them) and maybe £20 on each other, we usually buy ourselves something in the sales (bought a new sofa in jan last yr,this yr it will be a new car )

We usually set a budget depending on how flush we are feeling and we have to buy a couple of things to open. This year its £30 as we have recently had to buy a new laptop.

We are also each buying £30 of pressies for DS (9months) so that we have more surprises - did this last year when I was 6 months pregnant (as we had not bought anything at that stage) and it was really nice.... and worked out well as he was born at 33 weeks and I spent all of January in and out of hospital

DH would like me to spend nothing. But have spent about £14 on some useless crap I hope he'll like. grin
