Who make no attempt to buy you or your family X-mas gifts,but will come around just long enough to snatch up what you got them and leave?
My BIL and his family are like this. Last year they were here 15 minutes,no lie! They even said they'd come get their gifts,but had to go right away because they had to "hit up' a couple other places and only had an hour to make the rounds.
They refuse to just spend time with us.
They threw their kids a birthday "party" in September and made us leave in less than an hour.
They're getting a surprise this year. We only bought for a select few.

Yes, my husband's family is like that. We bought for everyone the first three years we were married (he has 4 siblings, plus their spouses and at that time 17 nieces and nephews). After three years of buying for 25 people and not getting anything in return - even a thank you - we stopped buying for them. I felt bad at first, we bought for my family and not his, but his family is not grateful for anything and my family had a traditional gift exchange. I wouldn't buy for your BIL's family either, it's pretty rude to visit to get the gifts and run. Hope your family has a Merry Christmas. (c:
