I am spending about $450 – but the present is kind of for me as well 😉

Before we had our son and we were both working, I spent SO much money on him! Probably at least $300 every year! Now, I’ve spent about $100 on him this year.

this is kind of a silly question. Why does it matter how much you spend? Thats not really the point of giving gifts.

So far? Zero dollars and zero cents. :p

 

But in all reality, we’re doing the $50 rule/contest again this year. Both of us always cheat, but it’s a fun game to play.

I know it doesn’t matter how much you spend, but people are always curious on what is spent whether it be holidays or weddings. I love to see the different price ranges. I think it’s interesting and it makes me be like damn, wish I had that kind of money! Lol

We usually spend more, but since we have so much house stuff to buy lately, we have a $100 limit for each other and that’s what I’m spending on my hubby pre-tax 🙂

OOOH! I didn’t think about that tax loophole. Last year I just had “my parents” give him a lot of stuff. He had “the cat” give me extra stuff.

Hahaha, love the gifts from the pets.  I used to do that where I had my dog “give” him presents, now the only loophole I have is pre-tax, lol.

We are being pretty cheap this year. Mr. G is getting a Save the Ta Tas mug (by request!), which, with shipping, ended up being $20. 

He asked me what I wanted and I replied: Do the dishes and take my trash out on New Year’s eve, and don’t snore if humanly possible.

Even trade.

About $175… I might call them engagement gifts since we aren’t technically doing gifts. We decided a few years ago that instead of presents we’d book a mini-trip somewhere. This year we’re going to our fav local resort for 3 nights!

I can’t WAIT until the farthest distance between us is the other side of the bed! LDRs are so expensive… the cost of his flight here would have made for a sweet trip if we were together locally. I hate paying for stupid flights back & forth.
