 I'm sorry. At least your baby will get gifts from grandma.

how old is your baby?

Babies don't need gifts. Wrap up some diapers if you are so concerned. And the adults in your life surely understand you are a teen mom and not a millionaire.

The only one stressed is you. I am sure none of the adults in the family are expecting you to go shopping for gifts for them.

i know how you feel! i'm sure your family understands!! this year is the first year we were able to give my daughters a GOOD christmas. this is my oldest daughters 5th christmas, we financially struggled for a long time and i didn't get anybody any gifts.... besides it's not like your baby will remember. and plus there is always next year. :]

 Next year make sure to sign up your baby for Toys for Tots or other similiar programs.

My baby isn't going to have any presents from her dad and I. I gave her life on Monday, I think that's good enough for this year. Lol. It's not like she needs anything. She has more than enough clothes and toys and diapers. There is NOTHING else a baby needs.

give your baby an empty box and a wrapping paper roll (the cardboard part).

i bet it will go over better than any store bought gift lol.
