I hate this part. We only buy for our Godchildren (We all pick godparents from our siblings) I have the most Godchildren to buy for and I try to spend $10-20 each but those with less Godchildren spend more on each one. It makes me feel like I am not doing enough but I can't afford to do more than that.

Re: How many gifts for Christmas?

every year we do 3 gifts each child, this does not include there christmas eve pajamas that they get each year, or stocking stuffers. This year on the other hand we have less money than ever so we did 2 gifts each that were pretty cheap but not junkie cheap.

Re: How many gifts for Christmas?

Last year and this year we did one combined gift and one additional gift each.

This year we are doing stockings too and we are putting things like toothbrushes, toothpaste, maybe a Barbie outfit for dd and some hair clips and a little person for ds, probably fill the rest of the stocking with cuties (little oranges). My kids love those.

Dh amd I don't always exchange gifts but this year I bought him a gun safe for his hand gun.

We write Santa a letter and ask him to bring us 3 gifts each to honor the birth of Jesus and remember the 3 gifts he recieved from the 3 wise men. We also ask him not to give mommy and daddy stockings and instead give our stockings to a family that needs a little extra this year. Those things together save us money. We also have a family wide agreement that we only buy the kids gifts.

Oh I like your idea of putting cuties in the stockings. My son loves these too.

If you have a dollar general near you they have been having really good deals. We're in a similar money situation. Certain toys are half off each week depending on the color tag and they have name brand stuff like hot wheels and Disney. Plus an added bonus you don't have to deal the the mall craziness.

My kids are getting 2 presents to share and 3 presents individually. Dh and i do not buy for each other.

To share: a keyboard and stand, just dance disney for the wii.

DS: dvd Hugo, 7 pack of superhero little people, crayon rocks and handmade coloring book (from The Crafty Bandita)

DD: ball popper elephant toy, 7 pack of princess little people, new pair of wool longies (knit by me)

Both sets of grandparents go WAY overboard, we usually return what we can and donate some. We let them pick a couple to keep.
