Survey: N.D. grandparents spend a Benjamin on grandkids at Christmas


According to one survey, North Dakota grandparents spend an average of $118 on their grandkids at Christmas.

And they’ll do so until the kids turn 20.

That’s according to a data survey by financial website

The younger the grandparents are, the more they spend on the grandkids.

Nationally, grandparents between 35 and 44 years of age spend an average of $344 on the children of their children, while grandparents 55 and older spend $179.

And, nationally, grandpa tends to spend more than grandma on the grandkids at Christmas: $244 versus $202.

While $118 is nothing to sneeze at, it does put North Dakota grandparents in the bottom three spenders by state (translation: We’re kind of cheap when it comes to holiday spending for the little ones).

Only Wyoming and Nebraska Nana’s and Popa’s spend less on their grandkids than North Dakotans.

Oklahoma grandparents, on the other hand, spend the most on their grandkids at Christmas: $339.
