    This year I got mine about 5, but some of them were ridiculously stupid… like a star wars candy dispenser :). We usually do like one big gift, then a few ones just for fun.

    I got mine 6 this year, but we were on a very strict budget, so they aren’t anything really expensive. Total for all was just under $50.00. In years past, when the economy was better, we have given more expensive gifts and about the same quantity.

    I always got him 1. I prefer to get him one big ticket item vs many small gifts.

    i got him 3 this year but they are all a little pricey: Xbox Kinect, Ugg Slippers, and CoD Black Ops. This was supposed to be a “light” year too because I got him an iPad for his birthday in October, oops :/

    I may pick up some shirts tomorrow if I have time.

    All year SO has been talking about taking up photography, so I got him one big present (Canon EOS Rebel T2i 18MP Camera) and 2 smaller gifts to go with it (Zoom lens & UV Filter).  We usually exchange 2-3 Christmas presents, and we give it each other a budget.

    well, we’re on a budget this year, so he and i agreed on $50 or less on each other, so he’s only getting 2 gifts this year…the Shrek total collection and a cute ‘Survival Guide for the Groom’ book.

    I got a ton for the FH, but if you could see his closet you would totally know why.  The FH didn’t even own a belt or a white dress shirt, but I changed that.  He has discovered that he really likes to dress up alittle when he is off work and really has no idea how to shop, so he waits for me to do it at Christmas and birthdays (or when there is a really good clearance sale).  I only have the FH and his son’s gifts left under the tree and it looks like Santa dropped his whole bag here, but this was the year we really wanted it to look huge as it is his sons first Christmas since his mom has passed.

    I normally get Fiance a handful of gifts (if we even exchange at all). This year we were supposed to do stockings but I got him some actual gifts to go in there (spent about $150). I’m pretty sure he got me a Dyson! I’d like to see him try to fit that in my stocking!

    One rule at our house- appliances are not a gift for me! They are for the household!

    I don’t think he would be too impressed if I got HIM a vacuum cleaner.

    I would love a Dyson! But, I live on a military base and most of my house has linoleum flooring. As much as I want one, I can’t convince my husband it is worth it for us haha. I know some people on base that have one though… it doesn’t make sense to me – we have no carpet to vacuum! I got my husband Black Ops too haha, I’m sure I’ll regret it here in the next month or so :).  Oh, and a home theater system – which will probably make me hate the game even more.

    @julies1949: If it were anything other than a Dyson I would be pretty peeved but this is the king of vacuums so I’m pretty stoked!
