Would be hard to nail down a number, as the food is not much more then we normally buy (built into the shopping list over the month)
Some numbers off the top of my head for this year:
- Christmas Tree and fresh wreaths= $80.00
- 3 sons (3 gifts each and stockings) = $600.00
- Husband = $300.00
- 6 nieces/nephews = $210
- Charitable giving = I do not know a number... include every bell ringer I walk by, our Compassion children, 3 Operation Christmas Child boxes and a goat with World Vision...
We do not buy adult gifts, teachers receive a card saying how much we appreciate their efforts and that a donation has been made (a goat
) with World Vision.
I am not a gift person, but my DH and boys like me to open something on Christmas morn, so it is usually a new pair of flannel pj's and chocolate. Maybe $40.
