So every year there is always a financial dilemma on how much to budget for the holidays. I have known families that budget as high as a few hundred per kid, or simply go with one large, expensive family gift. How do you budget your holiday gifts? Per kid? Per number of gifts?
Last year I made a Chanukkah basket with 8 little presents-1 for each night. I think everything in the basket came to a total of $25-30. Then we probably spent an additional $150ish for presents around the Xmas tree. I usually spend about $25-30 on each nephew for Chanukkah.
