  • Poll: How much do you spend on birthday gifts?

    How much do you spend on birthday gifts? - chieffamilyofficer.com

    We went through a few years after my oldest graduated from preschool when we went to just a few birthday parties each year. But lately, it seems like there’s at least one party per month, and so I started wondering:

    How much does everyone spend on kids’ birthday gifts?

    If I have one of those fun Target gift cards that’s also a toy or novelty, I’ll load $15 or $20 on it, depending on the kid and other circumstances. But lately, the parties have been for kids who play sports with my boys, so I’ve been buying $25 gift cards at Lids.

    I’m sure how much you spend on birthday gifts depends in large part on your area, and who you hang out with. But just for fun, I’ve created a poll at Survey Monkey, and if there are enough responses, I’ll compile and post them here.

    Once you’ve answered the poll, feel free to come back here and leave a comment with the details you think we should know – where you live, how old the kids are that you’re buying for, what types of gifts you usually buy, etc.

    Take the poll here.
