Yes, we exchange gifts with both our families. It depends, sometimes we buy clothes, electronics, sometimes sporting equipment for FIL (skis, fishing gear) or earrings for MIL.

I used to...I would look and take hours trying to figure out the best gift. Then in the end I was told "We have SO MUCH and need so little!" and the next year I was told that they gave their gift to the office because they didn't eat that kind of food! OMG! I was so shocked and hurt! So now my husband buys their presents - I'M DONE with that! Not to mention, they NEVER give us anything! not even a card! So it's over, and I will save that $$ to spend on my children!

I always ask around Thanksgiving what do they want for Christmas. They usually request wine, Chinese beers (father in law loves them), various foods. Nothing too difficult.

Absolutely! Fil got 24 gourmet K-cups
And mil is getting a lighted pill/mint box and an adorable purse sized screwdriver set... She is the ultimate craft/ fix it queen... The type to say to her husband as he pulls out the table saw, " go to the grocery store. I'll handle this !"
I thought a frilly looking purse sized screw driver set would tickle her to death
