Christmas Budgets


Registered Member
I was curious how much people spend for Christmas. I enjoy shopping the day after thanksgiving for deals and I would say I usually and and all spend about 500 bucks on Christmas gifts.

Thats a respectable sum of money. I usually go $200, but this year things are going to be extra tight. Actually, my family and I are going to celebrate Christmas after the fact because theres a local auction around where I live that sells new items at rock bottom prices. This usually happens after Christmas, because everyones already spent all of thier money.

I usually get people $15-20 gifts, which amounts to around $200 or so.

generally it ends up amounting to >$100. I buy gifts for my close family, and maybe a joke gift or two to friends.

I usually spend $100-$200 all together. I should start getting on top of things as Christmas seems to be sneaking up again...

I would say about $200 but I might get cheaper this year cause I just had to get my car fixed and thats never cheap.

On average, my annual christmas budget is usually around $500. I usually do try to seek out a good deal here on there. I also do try to treat myself to something since it's the end of year if my budget allows me to.
