  • Yeah I think it helps the kids learn about giving and being generous. At some point they'll start picking stuff out themselves and even using their own money they earn.

  • My husband never buys me a gift from the kids, but I usually take the kids shopping with me and let them pick out a gift for him.

  • Yes we did when they were babies, but as soon as they were old enough, we each took them shopping to pick out a small gift for the other one.....sometimes we would make gifts with them.

  • Yep. Every year.

  • Starting at about age 2, we'd each take the kids to the dollar store where they could search the whole store to find a gift for us (me, Daddy, Grandpa, etc.) from them. It has been absolutely hilarious and a highlight each year to see what they come up with. For instance, one year my daughter bought my brother a pink sequined Santa hat =) So, technically, not we don't get eachother a gift and sign it from the kids...although we have given cards "from the kids" since they were born.

  • He gets me a gift and then takes the girls to get mine. I get him a gift and then I have the girls pick out a gift from each of them.
