Around $100-200. Now that Schapelle is older I buy her something big, and little things as stocking stuffers etc.
Evie and Sloane will only be a few weeks old, so I'll probably just get them a few toys and clothes. It's good when they're to little to understand

I always end up going over board though, I set a budget and then break it every year.

This year we are on a REAL tight budget so my parents help out as "Santa". We are probobly going to spend about $100 on Justin and about $50 on Makayla which would be from us and when we go over my parents house there will be TONS of presents from Santa waiting for them there. We feel bad that we can't spend much but this year with me staying home to take care of the kids money has been tight.

Alot.... More than I should, but Christmas is so big to our family. Brailey probably won't get that much this year though.

Each daughter (there's 2) gets about $100 worth of "good" gifts (with teenagers, its usually something expensive)...then they get a bunch of smaller gifts like stocking stuffers, underwear, socks, etc...

I think by the time I'm done, I usually spend around $200 for each kid.

I love my 3 girls and little boy:

Mom to Jessica - 19 yrs old, Amber - 18 yrs old, Sebastian - 2 months

I don't really have a set amount per child, I usually try to get them the same amount of gifst, rather than the $ amount. As for my twins though, they are only 5 months old so I only got them 2 or 3 things this year. But my older 2 kids got a lot more. I spent probably around $550 total on all 4 kids. Next year will probably be more since the twins will be older.
