Christmas Gifts when does it stop?

When do you stop buying your niece or nephew gifts? what age? my niece is 16 yrs old and I figure after she graduates that's it. I remember only getting gifts as a kid under 13yrs old and no more from my Aunt's & Uncles.

  • Whenever you can't afford it or don't want to. I will continue to buy for my nieces until I can't afford it.

  • If they're not close to you,I'd say when they stop coming to family gatherings.
    if you guys are tight,I say NEVER!

  • Jaja. At like 15 my family stops giving gifts.Lol. There are about 57 grandchildren, so that is a lot of presents, so about 2 years ago all the older ones stopped getting gifts..

  • I think it would depend on the number of children are involved. If there are a lot then it can be quite expense then I would say 12 would be a reasonable age. But then if there are just a few then 15 seem like a good cut-off.

    Or just give a family gift to where everyone benefits.

  • My aunts still buy us gifts. When we all got married it changed to a token couple gift. We buy them gifts now, too.
