I saw a post in MC and thought it would be a good question here - Do you send BM gifts (cards, sweets, etc)? If you do, why?

No. Im also a bm and would be creeped out by it. My mom is the one that does cards and stuff from the kids lol

I have done that in the past as a nice gesture but I don't anymore. I guess now I feel like that's something for the kids to do for their mom, not me.

No. Can't say I haven't thought about it to be nice, but as a BM it would weird me out a little.

I have encouraged SS to make BM stuff or buy something so he could make her a card or gift...mainly cause I knew no one else was helping him out with her gifts.

When I was a SM and if SD and I baked something (cookies, cupcakes, muffins) she would ask to bring some home to BM's to share.  BM was asked ahead of time if it was okay; if was great, if it wasn't fine.  Never gifts or cards though.  And they were not from me as SM, it was made clear that SD assisted in baking the items and wanted to share the treats with the rest of her family.  I do not think BM was creeped out by that, she raised a generous daughter.

Sometimes we send her gifts fom the kids. It's been a while though.

No, but I did help SD make BM a present for Mother's day this year.

I'm BM & I have yet to get anything. BUT I don't expect anything either. And I'm sure GF doesn't expect them to get her anything either. Especially considering the rocky start we all had.
