How much will you spend on Christmas this year?

This is asking how much you or your household will spend on Christmas gifts this year. Of course this is an approximate estimate since the season is still in high gear.

There is no "I don't know, ask my wife" option on your poll.

$300-$500. Ingredients for cookies were under $100. The girl and I were planning on a new InterMetro kitchen rack anyhow, so I bought it as an early holiday gift for her. It's more than we'd usually spend on Christmas, but it's something we needed instead of just superfluous junk.

My family and I agreed that we would limit the amount of money spent on gifts would be $40.00 per person...or something like that.
