I know it's after Christmas, but I would like to start saving for next Christmas now so the expense is actually planned. The thing is, I'm not sure how much to budget. I way over spent this year-we didn't go into debt or anything but I still spent too much when all was said and done. I love buying people gifts but I'd like to keep the frenzied spending to a dull roar from now on. So if you don't mind financial questions, roughly how much do you spend per person on Christmas gifts?
