I just read this other post and a mom was saying that her inlaws always but cheesy gifts for them, that made me think, damn am i the only one that didin't get anything from the inlaws or family? my husband dosen't speak to his family so it's expected and my side of the family hate each other. I feel bad for my kiddos though they don't have any family so to speak but my hunny and me

We get $200 every year to buy individual gifts irritating a family one.

Sorry you didn't get anything

1 mom liked this
I never get gifts from anyone, husband included. the only people who have ever bought gifts for my kids is one of my aunts. my parents would but they are struggling financially.

 We don't really exchange with the adults. My dad did send us $100 like he does every year, and that was nice to get.

 MY mil always buys for us an so does my mom....  My husbnad claims Im getting a late gift because they what he wanted to get me was out of stock. He has also been off work for the last week an been a hermit in the house . SO we will see when he goes back to work if he comes home with a surprise... if not Il ne some what up set since I wasnt actually expecting any thing an no he has my hopes set high. so we will seee....

I received a really cute 'Family' candle holder/picture frame from STBMIL. &a $50 gift card from my dad. I don't ever expect anything.. and normally don't receive anything, this year was the first in 7 yrs I've got anything.
