yeah. we don't have a whole lot of money so I got her a set of 700 tc sheets for her bed and I'm thinking of getting her an entertainment book and a framed photo of the kids. I don't know her very well so I never know what to get her and dh is no help at all so if she doesn't like it at least I tried. lol

Yep. She's addicted to Fredericks of Hollywood signature fragrance so I get her a small one for her purse on her birthday and a large one for home on Xmas... She couldn't be happier and I'm happy she's so easy to shop for lol

Yup. They actually expect us to. Whatever. I always make calanders Of the kids for all grandparents andy brother and sister so they get one of those. Not that ive ever seen them hang it anywhere. And usually just gift cards to movies or stores tthey like.

 My in-laws live 3000 miles away and we only see them once every 4-5 years so I make them a yearly scrap book with all our family's activities, especially the kids activities. I also make them a DVD of any videos I take of the kids through the year. DH gets them a gift card to Trader Joe's since that is their favorite store to shop at. They send us one big family gift...this year it's a game table with air hockey, pool and ping pong.

When they were alive we'd get FIL different candies. He loved any kind of candy and never shared! LoL we'd get MiL whatever she asked for. It was usually clothes of some sort. I wish they were still here. They never got to meet dd2

Im making and canning pumpkin butter and salsa this year to send families. If we get one side we have to do it for the other to keep things equal I think.

Yes and lots of times I make them something.

 They aren't in laws yet but yes always have, always will. This year...his Mom is getting a clock radio or something..what she wants..his Dad is getting a new tool box for his truck (we're all going in together), and his Step Dad is getting something for his truck..I think a grill guard or something. (We're all going in together on that too).
