Usually whenever I set a budget it tends to go out the window once the stores open :D
But I'll probably spend close to $500, I don't really need much for tech or any big ticket items. On BF my sister and I usually grab stuff for my younger siblings from our parents and I don't even what to know how much they spend on BF!!

$1500, but if there are good TV deals, $4000-$5000.

No budget plan yet but we'll have $3-4k available to spend.

Looking for a 42"/47"/50" LCD HDTV deal - that's about it for the big$ items

I don't have a set amount. It will mainly depend upon what the stores are offering. I really don't "need" anything, but I'll probably drop a couple of hundred at least.

We don't have a set budget for bf but we do try to get all of our christmas shopping done that day. With smaller kids and the need for a sitter we try to get all done in one day. Our budget for everyone this year is probably around 1250-1500 and we buy for about 15-18 people. Hoping to see some good techie deals as well as clothes. Our oldest seems to go up a size about every six months!

You spend $1,000 each on 15-18 people, that budget would kill us!

That would break us too Pokerdad! That dollar amount is the total we will spend , not the amount we spend on each person! We generally spend 25-50 each for friends and extended family. Our present to ourselves and the kiddos is usually season passes to kings island and cedar point. Our kids get about 150-200 spent on each of them. Thus our total of 1250-1500! I'd love to have enough cash floating around to spend 1,000 on everyone, but, alas, it's just not meant to be! LOL :D

It all depends on what deals are out there, and what gifts I need. I don't have a specific budget for BF, just for individual Christmas gifts.
