Niece is 22 and nephew is 20. Niece is on my side of the family and nephew is on DH's side.
Niece lives out of state but stays in touch via text and Facebook. Nephew lives about 2 hours away but we have no contact with him except when he decides to attend family functions once or twice a year. Despite all the Christmas, birthday, graduation gifts we have given him, we have NEVER, NOT ONCE ever received a thank you, thank you note, text, email, anything!
I have no qualms about gifting to my niece as she appreciates whatever we give her, no matter how much it is, and lets us know. However, I am puzzled about what to do with the nephew. Would you still provide a gift or do you think he is old enough to forgo gifts now, especially since nothing is ever appreciated.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
