I don't budget for it, but I like to buy things when they are at a killer price and stash them for whatever occasion is next (B-days, Xmas, etc). Hubby's getting a photo mug that I bought in November when it was free from Shutterfly, just pay shipping and some body spray I bought with a Victoria's Secret coupon in September. The kids have presents bought at 50% OFF: Walgreens Black Friday sale in November and Target toy clearance in July, etc. :)
If I don't do that, I end up rushing around trying to find something cheap and it's so much harder to pick something I think they'll like.

Budget? We're suppose to budget? !!!
LOL Just Kidding.
I really never do an actual budget,I know what I have at any particular time while shopping and buy what I can on each trip.
Frustrating asking my kids (the older ones 24-30 The younger one,6 years old is different) they always say "nothing"
Which doesn't help because they know they're getting something,I'd much rather buy them something they want or need, I don't like giving gift cards alone.
I think part of Christmas is the opening of gifts and the anticipation of what's inside that is part of the spirit of Christmas.
You get so much more joy from seeing their faces light up or the surprise of delight upon them opening the gift.
