Christmas Gift Giving!!!

Answered 1 year ago

With Xmas just around the corner, I am trying to figure out what gifts to buy my extended family, but I have no idea! Does anyone else have this problem?

I know the surprise factor is nice, but all things considered with COVID, I want to make sure they are getting what they want or actually need.

I actually want some specific things too but hate to ask!!

How do you all handle this?

Wow.. i can't believe it's the time to think about it already!

We do that stealing white Christmas gift exchange where everyone buys a gift under $50, take turns opening up a present and have 3 goes stealing a present.

It suits our family because there's always one in the family that...

- Spends too much - so we feel bad we have given a gift that's meaningful but low costing

- Someone who buys wacky stuff for everyone and the present gathers dust.

- someone that doesn't have that much money to spend on everyone. Which is OK but they feel obliged to

- someone who doesn't see the need for gifts (me)

So this game for the past 4 years have worked well and helps all family situations! We spend money on the younger kids tho (3 of them).

Our family use an app called Elfster which is an easier way of handling Kris Kringle. Everyone downloads the app and then has a wish list. The app allocates who is buying for who. Works out well.

We only do kids in my family as in my kids, ny neices and nephews and younger siblings. Cousins and their kids stopped as its too expensive. I think its about time together not gifts maybe give token gifts, calenders, socks, gag gifts chocolates.
