    How Many People do you Buy Christmas Gifts for?

    Here is my list:

    Husband (5 gifts)
    Daughter #1 (7 gifts)
    Daughter #2 (7 gifts)
    Mother
    Mother-lin-law
    Grand-niece

    Plus small gifts of candy for the mail man and trash collectors.

    Back in the "good-ole-days" when I was working, I used to also buy for: 2 sisters, a brother, 5 brothers-in-law, 3 sisters-in-law, 4 nieces, 6 nephews, my staff of 4, 6 work friends and 2 old friends. That was a total of 57 gifts!!! I would go broke from the wrapping paper alone!

    The nieces and nephews are almost all adults now and I no longer work. We all mutually decided to cut back on gifts to siblings and friends when the economy tanked. I miss it sometimes, but not the expense!

    Tell me about your Christmas list!

    Wow - I don't know.

    I buy for different amounts each year, but somewhere around 15-20 people get gifts. I usually just buy one gift per person, but now that Lydia is born, she'll get more and more gifts each year.

    I get four in total. One each for both of my brothers, one for my mother and one for my grandmother. I send cards to extended family members.

    I buy my kids at least 200$ a piece in presents. The rest of my family usually gets one present a piece. BUT I have found really awesome candles with jewelry inside them, that will be good christmas gifts this year!!
