We didn't really set a budget, but I think in total I spent maybe $200 on everyone we needed to buy for ( I made a few gifts this year too) I'd say that was good. We live on a pretty solid budget, so money isn't ever a stressor for us which is a very nice feeling. The holidays never really change that.

I see based on your siggy you're expecting a boy?!?!? Congrats!!! Little boys are wonderful!


We went over budget as per usual. Not significantly but $5 here and there add up. And DH went significantly over budget on my gift apparently. But I always plan to be over budget its kind of a trend.

I would have stayed on budget if I had known that one gift would have shown up in time, but because I thought it wasn't going to make it I went out and bought DH something else. I was about $50 over this year.

Overall we were over but we do that every year and it wasn't grossly so. I was a little under on a few people and a little over on others plus we had an unplanned gift come up

We were pretty well on budge, except for DH's gift for me. We said $200 each on each other, and he more than doubled that!

My DH did the same! Our limit was $150 though. And I used my Shoppers Optimum Points to get his gift so I cheated a little.
