We celebrate holidays with my mom, my cousin’s family (including her daughters), and my Uncle (the grandfather of my cousin’s daughter). My mom and I have always bought nice gifts for the girls. My son is 4 years younger than them and ever since he was born my uncle has completely jipped him on all holidays. Today he brought the girls very nice Easter gifts with several toys and outfits. He gave my son a mesh pool chair he had obviously pulled out his garage.
For now Nate is too little to notice or care. But what will I do as he gets older and has to sit and watch his cousins open all these gifts in front of him?

I forgot to mention he brought eggs to hide and made a point of making sure I understood they were only for the girls, not my son. So they went in the front yard and had an egg hunt while we sat in the house. The 6 year old came in and offered to share her eggs with Nate since he didn't get to hunt. I actually started to tear up I was so upset.

I would stop going to family event..When a family member asked why I wont go I would tell them.
He might think sense your son is not his grandchild he does not need to buy things for him.
