What would you do with his gifts??

So my stepson blew off Christmas with the family (he's 19) several of us messaged him telling him time, place, asking if he needed a ride, etc. and he ignored everyone... well now we have a pile of gifts and no idea what to do with them... he won't even give out his address so they can be dropped off (I believe its bc they're into drugs) The only address we know is his girlfriends parents, but would it be super weird to drop gifts off there?
Would you hold on to them til he contacted you or some other option I haven't thought of?

Honestly, I'd return them. If you're holding on to gifts other people got for him, return them to the giver and they can decide what to do with them, and return whatever you got him to the store.

I would return them too. Or just stick em in a closet for next Christmas.

ya there's stuff from BIL, and MIL as well... with us its a few gift cards and toiletries so no worries on them getting re-used, but I just feel incredibly sad about it all

We're holding my 18 yr old DDs gifts hostage until she visits. She lives a few states away, and blew off an opportuniity for someone to bring her here for a few days. So no, we will not ship her presents to her, she can come and get them!
