I received two gifts in the mail yesterday for my daughter, one from her grandparents and one from her uncle. We have been estranged for quite some time now. The relatives live locally, but we are not going to attend their Christmas party. I hadn't planned to send gifts, but the uncle has a three-year-old son. Should I send him something now? What about the grandparents? Should I acknowledge that the gifts have been received?
This is why the holidays are so hard for me. Unexpected gifts appear on the porch from a family who hasn't treated me or the ones I love well at all. Then I have to figure out how to respond. It's giving me a bad case of the Christmas blues. Honestly, I wish they hadn't sent anything.

I'd send the Grandparents a thank you note from your daughter & I'd send the uncles 3 year old a stuffed animal.
