Exactly! I spend more on a fun dinner that we don't get the rest of the year, a couple movies to watch, a gingerbread house we will be putting together, a couple board games to play together.....

Pattons the same way, lol. He'll forget about it in less than a month. That's why he only got a few toys. the rest is stuff he can wear / use (boots, hat, etc).

For both kids combined, including stocking stuffers....about $300. We did not go crazy this year like we did last year (last year I think we spent a grand on the kids >.<)



I spent about $150-175 on my husband, and from what I know he spend about the same on me (I know I'm getting a Kindle fire and some new boots).

They're 2, 1, and 7 weeks old.. So, nope, they don't get upset over the dollar amount.

I didn't mean dollar amount, i mean the number of gifts to open. But since they're so young they probably dont notice it.

I'm suuuuuper OCD about keeping gift number even. I wrapped everything last night and realized my son has two more gifts than my daughter, so today I went out and bought her two more little things, lol.

Thanks, its been a bad end of the year for us. It's still an upgrade from DD's first christmas though! That year I spent $5 on some books. I agree, my brother bought his 5 month old a ridiculous amount of gifts. That kid is content staring at walls lol.

LOL!
I just think that with multiple kids it should be kind of even, whether in gift amount or dollar amount. I dont think it's right or "fair" to go out and spend $300 on one kid and $100 on the other. -Shrug- just IMO though.
