Where is the fine line?

My son's father and I are not in a relationship other than parenting. I want to get him a Christmas gift without crossing any lines. I love him, but he has made it clear that he doesn't feel the same. Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

  • You could take your son somewhere like Kiddie Kandids (studio that you leave that day with the pictures) and get him a nice frame for it? I would think a picture of your child looking adorable would be great and respect lines.

  • You could send a nice fruit basket that he could share with other people. That's a gracious gift that's pretty benign. I think it's nice you still want to get him something.

  • How about something cutesy so you can say its from his son?

    What kind of gift did you have in mind?

  • I agree with AmaliaD. I wouldn't do it either.

  • Hmmm well I would just leave him alone. But if you insist on getting something then send a food basket or something that isn't a personal gift. If you want to send him something with your kid in it that would be nice as well.
