  • No. We do a Kris Kringle so we only have to buy one gift and everyone just picks one.

  • Not usually, because there are so many and I have no idea what to get everyone. I do get something for my Grandma though, and then the rest of us draw names and do a gift exchange.

  • We get gifts for my husband's grandparents (usually pictures of the kids), my parents, and my sister's family. We also do a gift exchange with my husband's family where all the adults bring a generic gift and the kids have drawn names in advance. That's as far as we extend.

  • I think we are going to do Christmas pictures this year for our parents and grandparents, and we are buying for my nieces and nephew. DH's family doesn't exchange gifts with extended family, they usually draw names but we don't since we are not close to home. We are also going to have photo calendars made for my parents and his mom with pics of the kids in it. We don't have a lot of money this year for Christmas, so we are going more toward homemade, and we found a website that is doing buy 3 photo calendars for the price of 1. So we are going to probably do that. I am making homemade fleece tied blankets for the nieces and nephew as well as for my own kids. the girls are going to get a mini version of their blankets for their dolls also.

  • I get something for my Mom and stepdad and my niece's little boy who is 2 but that is all. Don't have the money to buy for everyone and the 2 year old is the only little one now. We do donate to Toys for Tots tho.
