    Depends what my Mum wants as to how much I spend. This year she mentioned some CDs so I'll probably get them and some other little things, maybe about £40 total?

    I spend as little as possible (sometimes nothing) on my mum because we don't get on.
    I never know what to get my dad so I don't usually get him much.

    Like £3 each.

    I'd love to be able to spend more but I have no job and no income so am permanantly broke. If my relatives give me money for x-mas, it has to last the entire year.

    Yeah my mum always wants something really cheap, last year it was seeds :rolleyes: . I buy her something good and then buy her the cheap gift at the end, but my little brother is so tight. I always feel bad.

    £5-10 each. My mum would get annoyed if I spent any more on her .. "I don't want your money while you're struggling to pay rent blahblah"

    I always push the boat out more for my mum when it comes to Christmas presents, usually get her about 3, a couple of cheap ones and then a main one which will be about £100.

    $50 each I guess. I'm terrible when it comes to picking out gifts though!

    I usually spend about £20-£30 on each parent and about £20 on my brother and sister each. Most of my Christmas money goes on my boyfriend's present though!

    I usually spend about 20-25 maybe 30 each on them, I'll probably up that to 40ish this year though since I have the money, that's if I can find stuff to buy for them! I don't have any brothers or sisters to buy for so that helps, but it's my dad's birthday a couple of weeks after so it's reeally hard to find stuff to buy for him!

    I only get them one present and spend about £15 - £20. I know they deserve more than that but I never know what to get them!
