  • The only way an IOU is acceptable is if you have already ordered the item and it hasn't arrived yet. You may put a photo of the item in a box with an IOU.
    Otherwise, no!

  • I've never heard of an IOU for Christmas. You mean, like "I'll get you something later"? I just don't get it....I didn't understand your lat post either.

  • Not really. If your family agreed before hand not to purchase gifts that would be one thing, but if it's common practice for you to exchange with everyone and they just didn't buy for your kids, that's not right. In hubby's family they just don't buy gifts for each other. All of the kids will get gifts for his mom, but they don't for their siblings or any of the kids.

  • I dunno as long as it wasn't like my kids grandparents I don't think that would bother me... or them really. Even if it was the grandparents I think as long as they had warning(Like knew we were going over for Christmas but that they wouldn't have anything to open that day) it still wouldn't really bother me.

  • how old are the kids? But seems wired to me. If they 15 and up then maybe.
