Anyone else giving the same gift to everyone this year?

I'm so tired of the stress that has started to come with Christmas around here. One sister has everything. Two parents who never like anything they get, two nephews who want nothing but money. I'm always struggling to stay in a budget and running all over the place. This year I finished right on budget, bought everyone the same thing and I feel awesome. Anyone else do that?

I haven't even started yet but I really hate the idea of having to buy gifts for other adults. I just like to keep it for the kids

My parents always insist that we don't have to get them anything, but I always do. I haven't found anything yet, though. I will probably get both of my sisters the same thing.. whatever that may be lol

That's how it was here, but then the kids all became adults, and now we're back to buying for everyone. I've brought it up over the last few years but my parents and I seem to be the only ones who don't want to buy for everyone.

All the adults are getting alcohol and the kids are getting fun bath sets.

No. We stopped doing sibling gifts years ago. We usually pitch in for a big gift for my mom and my nieces are pretty easy. Usually it's all Amazon so no running around.
