Do you have typical gifts you give out for Christmas?

For example, do you give shirts to guys, jewelry or Bath & Body Works items to women? Or do you just do gift cards?

I try to mix it up, but sometimes, I choose the easier way and buy generic things.

  • I lean heavier on gift cards as the years roll on. It's hard enough to keep up with what my own kids want, I don't want to lay a guessing game with other people. It's easier to get them a gift card and let them get something they truly want or need. Now, if I know the person well (kids, husband, mom, close friends) then I will get them something if I have an idea of what they want.

  • More gift cards than anything. It is just too hard keeping up with 5 million people.

  • I try to buy for the person and their indvidual likes, wants etc.
    My children always received a book, a game, a toy, a creative item and an outfit. All were geared to that child but all had that theme. I am not saying they did not get more than that but that was the basis and sometimes the end.
