Every year my mother-in-law and sister-in-law go crazy, buying my DS anything and everything, plus overboard on things for my husband as well. Last year we had asked to keep everything at 1 gift, but they did not listen, and I felt embarrassed. 2 things are going on, number 1 we don't want our son to think Christmas is about getting presents for yourself, and I am talking like they get 25 gifts! And we can just not afford to give in turn, and honestly neither can my mother-in-law, I want to be really clear on limits this year, my DS goes nutty to get there, and it is not sending the right message, ANY IDEAS to do it and keep the peace?

Well it sounds like you already told them, just try to tell them again. Your kid isn't going to think Christmas is just about gifts if YOU teach him what it's really about. If they truly want to spend money like that let them.
