Does he buy the gifts for his side of the family?

His mom is the only one that we buy for. His siblings get baked goods from me. My mom is the only on my side we buy for as well. The rest of my family gets baked goods. But usually I ask him what he wants to get his mom and I buy it on Amazon when I am shopping for him.

We do a gift exchange.

Yeah, I used to make an attempt with his mom's but every time he insisted she wouldn't like any of my ideas so I gave up. It's probably just as well, she doesn't really seem enthusiastic about most gifts.

His side is all gift cards-so I usually get them.
The only gifts he does are for me-I give him a wish list to choose from.

He does. Of course he forgets people so I have to write down everyone’s name! This year, living overseas we are just doing our little family Christmas. Neither of us have time to go out and buy gifts for everyone then take it to our only post office on base. It’s a madhouse, lol!

I usually buy all the gifts, for both sides.

No, I usually pick out everything for both sides of the family.

We usually pick them out together.

We discuss together what gifts we want to buy, but ultimately I end up purchasing them.

I buy for everyone. He isn't the greatest st picking out gifts but he does mean well. I took over after our first year together. He gave me a necklace (I don't wear jewelry) and the itchiest sweater I have ever owned. I now pick out my own gifts and everyone else's. LOL It makes everyone happy this way.
