Today, just out of interest I decided to tot up how much has been spent so far on this year's Christmas gifts/expenses and 2 Dgc birthdays..
We have 4 offspring plus partners plus 4 grandchildren.
3 siblings, a couple of friends where it's a token gesture. 6 nieces/nephews.
I have not included gifts between DH and myself, going out for dinner with friends rather than exchanging gifts, or any Xmas food shopping.
DH does a lot of major Xmas shopping with me and if I get any on line, I ask his opinion so he is 'in the 'loop.'
After totting up just off the top of my head, so some minor stuff may not be included..... I asked DH what he reckoned we'd spent so far. DH reckoned £700. It actually came to £1280. In my heart I feel this is a bit much.
I've said to DH about suggesting to family, us plus 4 offspring plus partners make 10 adults......that we do a Secret Santa but I think DH doesn't want to appear to be bah humbug.
Does anyone else know how much they've spent or likely to spend?
