If you have more than 1 child, do you spend the same amount of money on each for Christmas or give the same # of gifts?

I try to do both, but I have found that since they could count, they always noticed if one or the other got more gifts, so I focus on making sure the # is equal.

They get the same amount of gifts, and I strive for spending roughly around the same amount, but it depends on how obvious it is (my oldest is getting some reigns for her horse that are $40 and no one would know that's twice as much as other daughters saddle bag)

I try to do both also. I budget the same amount of money for each and try to get the same amount of gifts.

I try to make sure the amount is the same for all. The girls I have to make sure they have an equal amount of gifts because if I don't DSD will either brag thereby upsetting my DD or get upset because DD got more. DS usually gets more than anyone but with my family the youngest one usually does.

They have the same amount of money spent on them all. They never seem to notice if one has more than another, but I do try to keep the number of gifts as close as possible.

I try to keep it even. I had some trouble this year because Natalie got a mobi-go and and Arianna wanted a Flip video camera and that'd put her over.. so we found a version cheaper.
