    It depends on the person. For immediate family it's $20-30. And for friends, coworkers, etc. it's less. Usually I can get a great deal that is WORTH alot of money.

    Im sure you'll give your son the best Christmas ever...
    I know its difficult, but you have to be strong and try to make Christmas beautiful for both you and your little boy..
    My sister is just like you, so, I think I can pretty much understand you..

    Generally people spend money on Christmas gift depend on their income. Now a days people are facing recession problem so i think this time budget for Christmas is going quite less.

    It really depends on who I'm shopping for:
    Son: $100-200
    Husband: $100
    Parents: $50 ea.
    Nieces/Nephews: $20 ea.
    Coworkers/teachers: $10 ea.
    Pets: $5 ea.

    Looking to spend around $700 this year.

    I may sound cheap but I bought for everyoneunder $7.00 each but I was only required to buy for the kids. so I don't care. I jst have to buy for the dogs and put money back for Roy he wants to go shopping together around the week before christmas by then I should be up and about after surgery.
    Wishing you many hot cocoa mornings and firesky nights throughout the new year!

    I can't budget, that word is not in my vocabulary. I get in trouble every Christmas morning when all the gifts are opened. My Husband has a bird. What's a girl to do? I'm a Christmasfreak in every sense of the word. I truly need Rehab!

    I also don't have a Christmas budget, it's different each year. But I don't spend much
