We always gave each other really nice (jewelry & electronics) gifts before we had our Son. Now we save the money & the extra $ goes to gifts for our Son. Really It's more satisfying for me to see him excited & light up when he opens his gifts, he's 4 . That's a gift for me! :) Besides that we buy what we need for ourselves when we need it. I think it's smart today to save for rainy days.

We usually give gifts to each other (really, we just take $100 each and buy what we want because I suck at surprises and would rather get clothes - something he can't pick out for me) but this year, money is tight so we know there is no sense buying each other gifts. Once we get back to normal, we'll buy gifts again.
