Between £5-10 depending on how it looks!

The ideal is something that has been reduced that falls nearer the £5 mark but looks like I've spent a lot more on it!

I try and buy something on offer, eg. Argos 2 for £15 or Tesco vouchers half price toys. Limit is £10 per child.

And buy bumper packs of birthday cards and rolls of wrapping paper. Tesco had a brilliant box of expensive-looking kids cards a while back, which worked out at about 30p each.

£5-10. I also look out for bargains and stock up.

£5-6. Sometimes less if it looks like might've cost £5.
On the basis that I really wouldn't want anyone else who isn't a close friend to spend more on my dcs than that.
