Depends on all sorts of things. I'v got three kids and that is an absolute max for us, although less is more likely.
#2
i have 4 boys we aim for £100 but usually goes over!!!
#3
depends on what they need/want I suppose. £100 does seem alot on one hand but in todays society what can you buy them for £100? An xbox, wii or PS3 all cost way more. As they get older the stuff they want costs more.
#4
it's your cash

I wouldn't personally

Jeremy Vine's kids are only 2 and 4, so I guess £100 is plenty enough for him.

He'll soon change his opinion once they hit ages 6 & 7.

spent about that so far on my 3 year old.
But most of that has been from buying the odd thing here and there over months..rather than waiting a week before christmas.

Yes, my two and four year old are easy to keep below the £100 level, but the 10 and 14 year old are a different, for starters the 14 year old is getting a laptop, because she needs one to complete her homework , that has cost more than £100.

It's not the value of the gift really is it, it's meant to be about the act of giving and reciving and the love and thought you put into choosing something.
#13
£100 is fine if you can afford it, about right for me.

Radio 2 presenter (Jeremy Vine) just stated that £100 is too much and £50 would be more appropriate. Personally i thought £100 was a small amount to spend on the kids, what do you think?


Who cares what Jeremy Vine thinks?

I happily spend about £250 each on my kids at Xmas. I couldn't give a monkies if someone believes thats too much (or not enough).

If I said spending less than £200 is being tight - would you take any notice of that?

[COLOR="Purple"]yh right.. tell that to a teenager!!![/COLOR]
#16
My parents always had the rules of us that they would give us max £100 in cash/vouchers OR up to £200 for a proper present like a bike or something.

I told my 5 yr old daughter that last year when we tricked her and pretended she only got a pair of slippers. She started her hissy fit then, and finished it about July/Aug :whistling:

i've got 3 kids and they all want a DS for crimbo - £100+ with cases protectors etc.
and then theres the stocking fillers - board game, selection box, couple of wee things etc
and mine are all under 9
£100 is reasonable

It's Dec 25th. Same time every year. Duuuurrrrr :whistling:

i spend about £250 each on my 3.cant really afford it but dont have any family,so no-one else will buy them anything.its all about opening the presents not whats in them,so kind of feel i have to spend this much to give them the ''wow'' factor.
#26
£100 is gay, £250-300 is about right, for kids under 5 £150 is about right.
#27
I will generally buy something they want for around £25 which is from me and hubby and put under the tree (last year one wanted a recorder and book for £15 and one wanted Dr Who set for £30). Then I buy them the Santa presents which I do from June onwards - unfortunately this generally works out at about £50 per child. I do think people spend too much on Christmas but having said that it is getting more and more difficult to keep within a sensible budget!!

Most children don't tally up what is spent on them - it's not about the money - it's christmas and it's a time for families - whether that is corny or not it's what I think!

I prefer to make their birthdays more special.

It neccessary as long as you can afford it. I would love to get the kids loads of things and think they will more than happy with what they are getting. Some other may think that all that money is way over the top - but like I said, most folk like spoiling their kids.

lol, how old are you.............
#31
OMG, I feel better now, we have spent around £400 each on our two lads (9 and 12) and was just debating if that was about average. I save up all year round as we buy for another 20 people as well as the boys. We are not particulary well off and I would never go into debt but what can you actually get for £100? They are both getiing Ipods and they are that price alone! :santa:
#32
depends on what ur gonna get them.
You cant buy games consoles for under £100.
My girl is having a laptop this year - to help with her school work. I'd much rather pay more and get her something she will have plenty of use out of, rather than a plastic toy for £50 that will end up broken or unused.

But then i've only got the one, so i can afford to. It must be difficult with more kids.

Agree with other comments, totally depends on the age, you can get piles of stuff for £100 for a 3/4 year old, you cant get much for a tennager with that.
Having said that it depends what you can afford and what they want/need.

My 2 are 14 and 9, last year i sepnt a lot on them, but it included a laptop each what they needed for school and they were told in no uncertain terms they have to last 3-4 years at least.
It actually worked out well as neither really want much this year, will probably spend a couple of hundred each on them.

I'm 17, and my parents work it on what we've had throughout the year for birthdays and stuff. £100 is probably the max they spend on me and my brother who is thirteen. I don't get a lot anymore, I haven't for the past few years because theres nothing I want, and ever since started working I don't value presents as much, its more of the thought.

I work, go to college, run a business and am currently helping turn around a failing gaming business atm. As you grow older when you don't really want as much, depends on who you are and it'll probably change when I go to uni lol. Personally I prefer to buy stuff myself with value as I know I've worked for it then, rather than beg my parents to buy me something.
