A handpicked collection of the best Christmas gifts
How much should you spend on a Christmas present? That's not an easy question to answer. There are lots of different factors to consider yet no fixed social rules to help you decide. Other gift purchases are often slightly easier to gauge. For instance, an engagement ring is traditionally supposed to cost at least one month's salary. Unfortunately there are no similar guidelines when it comes to Christmas presents.
To help you navigate the tricky Yuletide period and it's associated gift buying dilemmas, the Present Spotter team has put together our own set of budget tips for you to use. Simply follow our three golden rules the next time you go Xmas shopping and you won't go far wrong.
Your total Christmas present budget will obviously depend on how many people you have to buy for and how much disposable income you currently have! As a very rough guide your total spend should be around one week's salary. This should be enough to get some nice gifts for your family members and closest friends, but if you have several young children to buy for then Christmas may cost a little bit more.

2. Individual Spend.
You now need to decide how you should divide your budget between each individual recipient. Again, this is only a suggestion but Present Spotter recommends an equal split between each close family member and then 'everyone else' as an extra 'person'. So, if you have £100 to spend it's £25 each for your wife and two children. That then leaves £25 to split between your Mum and Dad, brother, sister and best friend (£5 each).
3. Stick To It.
It's all well and good putting together a set shopping budget, but it's still easy to end up spending a lot more. The best way to avoid this common mistake is by not making impulse buys. Give yourself plenty of time and don't rush into anything. It's much better to go away and consider each gift before making your final purchases later.
We hope you enjoyed our budgeting tips and that they help to take some of the stress out of your Christmas shopping this year.
