How much?
The holidays are coming, and that means gift giving.

Assuming you have the following people to buy for, how much do you or would you normally spend on these people.

If you don't usually buy for them, or don't have the following to buy for then how much would you?

I hate X-mas shopping with a passion, plus this year I won't have my "girls" to do it with or for me. Jesus's birthday is a pain in the backside. Why can't we all just take him to TGIFriday's or Dave and Busters. Much better than fake trees and crappy songs and wrapping gifts... and all you Q's down in Q-ville with your ring-ting-tinglers and walla-kazzoos and...


I do like fruit cake tho, so there's that.

I try to match the person with the right gift.  Not so much a dollar amount.

Dont have a spuse or g/f this year (again) but usually give what they want, my youngest son and grandchild being in CO is kind of difficult but the oldest is here with me, usually get something necessary or educational. Friends I usually get someting they need or dont think of buying themseves, usually around $15-$20 a piece depending how close our friendship

 It's all about the kids for sure. I'll never forget, like 10 years ago this bookie I knew said "my kids' Christmas all depends on how I do on this one football bet." Sad and hilarious at the same time.

 I'd say that you and I are more like $35 friends :)

With the exception of my little sisters, I plan on again proposing a deal with everyone else: Don't buy me anything, and I won't buy you anything. I hate shopping, don't need anymore crap, and am generally a complete scrooge who barely tolerates Christmas, so the less I have to participate, the better.

The kids get something nice. Everyone else gets what happens to be left on the Bargain Table as you walk into the Walmart. Ho, H

i'm not buying presents this year...  i did it last year, soooo....  =D
#13 | 1350 days ago

I can't believe so many of don't buy yourself something for Christmas.  I usually buy a new outfit and maybe a new gown or pjs and robe to wear  Christmas.  Spent much more on the kids and grandkids when they were little and at home.

I get what I can. I don't have a cap, per say, but, I also don't spend more than my means.

 I usually ask my nieces and nephews, love ones and friends  what they prefer to receive as gifts on Christmas and I  try to give them what they wanted.
