I don't know if it's a case of culture or just my family but when we were children, we would get 1-3 presents at most from our parents (as far as I know anyway) with one main one and then something smaller.
The value I don't think mattered so much but I don't think they ever spent £200 on either of us (although in the 80s £200 would have been worth more than now).
I believe the main reason though was that we spent every Xmas with the whole family and presents were received on Xmas eve (Santa visiting us in person and all) so you'd have a pile of presents anyway (Grand parents, uncles and aunts etc.).
One year blankets were put on the floor in the large hallway so the kids could get their toys there and play because there wasn't enough room in the lounge.
