we live on a pretty tight budget so we buy for our 3 kids, 2nephews, 1niece, 2 godchildren, & my parents(hubby's are deceased) we use a strict budget for all but our kids, we do get them whatever possible. brothers, sisters, friends we just have time together & lots of food. we usually have to buy all the food & if any baking is done, we do it. if you add up the candies, cookies, 6 & 8 course meals for 15+, & beverages we spend way tooooo much!!
