Question Speaking of Christmas...

...how much do you spend on DH/SO? Do you set a limit for each other or is it a free-for-all??

We set a $20 limit for each other each year. We figure that we've done lots of fun things throughout the year together, so we shouldn't go all out on just one day; but it's nice to have SOMETHING to open on that day, so we set the limit.

We also get inundated with gifts from family (many of them monetary), so we each take a little of that cash and buy something that we'd like, then put the rest directly to debt.

it varies..... dh never buys himself anything, so I use christmas as an excuse to splurge on him. Last year I spent about $300 on him

DH always goes overboard for me at Christmas.. He uses his *fun* money that he gets for working Saturdays. I tend to keep my spending on him under $200.

This year we are thinking we will just get a new TV for our bedroom and that will be a joint gift to ourselves.

I would say $300.00? It all depends on things. I try and buy him things he wouldn't think to buy himself. It gets harder and harder each year to do that. I love watching him and our DD open their gifts.
 


2 yrs ago he bought me a remote starter for my car and had a print out for the whole thing all wrapped up in a box with a Toyota symbol etc. I was so happy I couldn't believe it. He actually was able to surprise me. When we bought our van I really wanted it put in, but we decided to skip that since we got everything else. Every time I click on my car from my house to turn the air or heat on I smile. How stupid is that?

He is Jewish so this Christmas thing is new to him even though we've been together for 10yrs. He is now getting better at holiday shopping and listening to what I say. Last year he went to my friend and ordered a ton of scrapbooking stuff that she knew I wanted. (She was Creative Memories Consultant).
