Should we buy gifts?

My daughter divorced her husband and he remarried an old girlfriend. He and his gf had a 15 yr old daughter together, my daughter and he had a 14 yr old dd and a 12 yr old Ds, and she has a 12 yr old Ds from a previous relationship. I had just bought presents for my two grandchildren, but am feeling like maybe I should get the other two kids something also.


Should I?

It's totally your call, but I probably wouldn't.

Will all the children open gifts together? If so then yes, I would buy them a gift too.

I would. Step situations are always difficult as a step mom and a step daughter it was always hard watching my sister open gifts and get nothing. Of course I understood but it still sucked. Now if these gifts aren't going to be opened around them then I wouldn't worry about it at all.

It would be very sweet of you, and vey much in the Christmas spirit. My MIL would buy her grandson's sisters gifts for Christmas, even though they were her ex-DIL's kids by the man she married after she divorced my BIL.

You're not their grandma, you don't have to buy them anything

I just got a box from my exhusband's fiancΓ©e's mom containing gifts for my two children from her. She also sends gifts on their birthday. She's very sweet and I thought it was very nice of her to think of my children as well as her grandchild when Christmas shopping.

If I was going to see the kids all together I would. If I was only going to see those I was related too I wouldnt. Just depends
