    Advertisements
    Do you and your SO set a budget on how much to spend on one another for Christmas? If so, about how much?

    we always say "only $100" or some number in that ballpark, but he always goes WAY overboard. I can't complain though!

    I make significantly less than him. He usually gets one big gift and little things, about 500$. DB spends too much. Too too much.

    Well, this is our first Christmas together, so were dealing with this right now actually. He made me agree to keep it to about $100....then told me the thing he's getting me cost a LOT more than that. But I make a lot less than him, and have a lot of bills, so I might just end up sticking to that $100 limit...for one of his gifts.

    We have yet to set a budget. DB always spends way more of me, than I do him (due to our difference financial situations). I really want to get him some awesome gifts this Christmas!
