My little brother is not getting anything for Christmas because my mom can't afford it.

My mom has a ton of bills that she has got behind on and can not afford Christmas. I am thinking about instead of getting my Dh a large present getting him something smaller and getting my little brother a larger gift and saying it is from my mom, his dad, and our family. Btw he is 13.

Edit:

I decided to buy him a pair of skates that are $199, which is crazy to me, but he really wants them. But they are on sale believe it or not. They are normally $300 and they are giving away a summer pass to the skate center he normally goes to which is a $60 value. I figure the pass will be from my family and mom, and the skates from santa :)

I think that's really sweet of you.  I don't have any siblings that are young like that but if I did I would do the same thing.
