    For me it depends on the person and how much I have to spend. Usually I usually buy for:
    - My boyfriend: 50 - 100(=$70 - $145)
    - Our dog: 5-10(=$7 - $15)
    - My parents, brother and sister: 10-15 p.p.(=$15 - $20)

    However there are years in which I find it very hard to stay within that budget. If I see something really nice and it costs more I usually buy it anyway.

    Now wait a minute, Susie. Just because every child can't get his wish that doesn't mean there isn't a Santa Claus.

    I'm like you, ikey2, I don't have a budget. Yes, I should, but I do layaways and try and pick up things through the year, so that helps.

    LOL....I like your style, Kimmy. While I don't really stick to a budget, I try and make things equal with everyone.

    I don't really budget either. At all. I pretty much just start buying stuff early in the year with a bit of the extra money we've got; I'll take a few dollars here and there and buy a present for someone, stick it in my stash, and forget how much I spent!

    Usually I spend about $1200, but as this year is the first since I split from my husband I'm bugeting for half of that. The hard part will be to not go over board shopping for my son - I want Christmas morning to be as normal as possible for him, but it'll be hard to not over compensate.
