Nance Lee Mosquera, 51, and her husband, Vini, 31, live in Minneapolis.
Cost: $1,200

Nance Lee Mosquera: Christmas will be all about the accessories to go with the motorcycles my husband and I bought in August. We both want to get quality leather jackets with reinforced elbow patches, and my husband wants to get a custom kickstand. We've pulled back on our travel expenses because of the recession, so we got the bikes to make weekend trips. My husband bought a 2009 Harley-Davidson for $10,000 marked down from $14,000, and I bought a used 1996 Honda for $2,500 on Craigslist.

NEXT: Holiday party for friends
