    @7-9-11bride: Last year we probably spent $500 on him, but since we have another baby on the way and are looking for a new home, it will probably be more around $300

    We’ll spend $100 or less.LOL Our baby will only be 3 months old, so the toys we do buy will be used during the yr when she gets older.LOL I plan to buy her lots of clothes as well.

    Since I lost my job, and we have family to buy for also, we will probably spend around $100. We are getting him a big toy (around $50-$60), then some smaller things. Our families will be giving him lots of presents too, so he will be fine. he only plays with a few of his toys anyways so its kind of pointless to buy lots of things he won’t play with!

    Last year, we probably spent $100 on our daughter, but she was only 6 months old.  This year, we’ve set the limit at $300, but we’re redoing the guest room as her “big girl” room, so some of that includes new bedding, decorations, etc…  

    The toys on our list include a trunk of dress-up clothes, a play shopping cart with play food, a few new books, and a play computer/e-book thing from Leapster.

    I got that for my niece the one year and she LOVED it. She was the coolest kid on the block with her Barbie Jeep. Of course we got my nephew the non Barbie Jeep as well, they’re 2 weeks apart.

    Awesome! Any riding car is awesome at that age. She somehow managed to fit 3 kids into that thing when she took it for a test drive! hahaha

    My baby girl will only be about 5 months old, so we’re not going to be going all out this year. Well, we’re Jewish, so it’s Chanukah for us. But still, we’re not going to start the 8 night thing until next year b/c she has no idea. We’ll probably just do one or two little things just for funsies. I’m sure she’ll get more from her grandparents then she will from us.

    I’m due 12/15 and we’ve spent a boatload so far on everything baby.. I have no idea what’s going on for Christmas with friends and family…. and I’m having a hard time trying to separate things I’ve bought the baby for fun and what should be an actual Christmas gift, goes in the stocking, etc..? Poor Darling Husband, he’s getting screwed this year, lol

    I voted $300ish…I have an amazing 3yr old and I we plan on SPOILING her!!! I am planning on one of those barbie cars she can drive in and then some smaller items.  I don’t care it that is ‘too much’.  I didn’t have alot growing up so to be able to go a little crazy on her makes me happy!
