christmas gifts wrap up

December 28th, 2019 at 04:33 pm

DK got lots of small toys from my parents. They also got gifts from a few other relatives So they were good. From us? 3 stocking stuff toys each between $8-12. Pikmi pop, curlylocks, and LOL ball. Then they had the build a bear I get them every year $75/each, Lego Advent $30, and a big toy from Santa $20 (shopkins) and $20 gift from us (shopkins and calico critter) and weirdly socks and blanket. That does not include the cirque du soliel show tonight or any other activities we've done. I guess with everything I've spent $300 or so on each kid. Which is a lot considering it didn't seem like a lot of gifts. Of course it wasn't things but show and building a stupid bear was ridiculous. I did get the $75 bear for 40% off buying the gift cards from costco at $60 for $100. I forgot the mani-pedi for each $15.

Anyway I'm hoping to teach the kids appreciation. It's so hard when you have so much. When I have more time I'll write my thoughts on the kids paying their way and rant on retirement.

What did you spend on the holiday? I did spend more than that with my parents, eating out, the show, etc.

    I haven’t crunched the numbers but I spent exactly what I had budgeted for. $700. Mostly on my annual game night party

    I usually spend a lot at xmas but we budget for it...I usually buy the kids and hubby a couple gigts and then some of $500 thing we do when the kids got a bit older was to do experiences together as a family...could be the zoo, a day out doing anything we all got to choose something...could be a scavenger hunt..makes memories and they didnt end up with so much crap

    We save for ours by using a Christmas Club. Between the two of us, I think we spent around $1000 for gifts and tips.
