  • every fricken year we do this secret santa thing only because one inlaw wants to do it, so at first we had to spend $50 on each person so that's $100.00 because me and hubby share our money so i used to make my own homemade things like a fabric picture frame, homemade fragrances, and such but now its like $25 dollars we have to spend on them and last year instead of homemaking anything.....

    (cause i caught the drift no one likes my homemade things, every time we pick a piece of paper with a name on it, everyone switches and says "they have money, it'll prolly be something good!")

    i went and bought an inlaw that variety pack of Curve perfume, made everybody christmas tree photo bulbs. whether she liked it or not, those items that come in baskets and are all joined as one are the best i can do now these days.

  • Gift cards are always good. They are not personal at all.

  • This is why I hate gift exchanges - you end up buying a gift for someone you don't like. I personally have refused to be in the "family gift exchange" , made for some mad family members but I didn't care. I would have to agree with Jquevara and do the gift card or the old stand by of mugs, calender, lotions, bath stuff etc...
    Good Luck and have fun

  • Okay so I buy nothing for my Sil(husbands sister)...she is a bitch and I don't like her. I am not obligated to buy anything for anyone. So I say buy her nothing, its not her right to get a gift just cause she is a in law. With my brother and sil, I had bought them things year after year, Gift cards and stuff. Well after several years of getting nothing in return, I stopped getting them anything too. What really stopped the gift giving was a couple of years ago, after they recieved our gift, they sent us a pickle christmas tree ornament...I was done. So maybe a pickle ornament would be a nice gift for someone you don't like! Haha
