The average Australian parent spends $300 per child at Christmas, with teenagers having the most expensive gifts.

According to Canstar research, Victorian parents are the most generous when it comes to gift-giving, followed by moms and dads in NSW.

Big W will be sharing the full catalog on June 6 to give parents time for the iconic annual sale.

How much do Australians spend on their children at Christmas?

A nationwide survey of 2,000 consumers’ Christmas spending shows that people with children ages 13-18 spend an average of $336 on Christmas gifts per child. In comparison, parents with children under the age of five spend an average of $250 per child. Mothers and fathers with children between the ages of five and 12 pay an average of $277 per child at Christmas.

This means that an average Australian household with two children could spend as much as $672 on gifts at Christmas this year.

The study found that Victorians trip over their children the most at Christmas, compared to mothers and fathers in Queensland and New South Wales. Parents of teenage children (ages 13-18) in Victoria spend an average of as much as $399 per child during the crazy season. Those with elementary school age children (5-12) spend $310 per child.

Parents in NSW were the second largest spender with an average spend of $304 per teenage child and $297 average per child for children under the age of five. Those with children between the ages of five and 12 spend an average of $286 per child at Christmas.

Mothers and fathers in Queensland spend the least on average: $311 per child to teenagers, $230 per child to school-age children and $207 per child to children under five.
