I ask because I'm thinking of upping the amount we spend on each grandchild. As they grow older, it is getting harder to find gifts at the price point we've been using. In a couple of cases, we have grandchildren who are saving their money and buying things for themselves that are at a price point that is much higher than we would spend. That makes it sort of difficult to think of a good gift, ya know.
I'm not asking 'should' as in demanding a gift or demanding that the grandparents spend a certain amount. Space was limited. All I'm asking is, if you had your way, how much would the grandparents to your children spend on your child? Do you like to be the primary gift giver / provider? Do you appreciate that the grandparents are in a position to significantly help out with big ticket purchases?
