Do you think this is "cheap"?

We have zero money to spend on gifts for family this year.

We got cheap family pictures done at Walmart that will be ready to pick up on the 20th. I thought I could frame one for MIL, FIL, and SIL and give that as a gift--but DH says its too cheap and it would be better off just not giving anything (I don't think they will be getitng anything for us this year, as we told them just to get something for the kids).

What do you think?

I think thats a nice gift and they for sure would want some pics of the kids. Get nice frames or you can even add some scrapbooking around them to doll them up

We had to do exactly that last year.  In fact, I didn't even do frames for them...just the pictures.  Sorry you are having a bad year!

No, it's a great idea! Remember it's the thought that counts.

I think that soudns cute. That is what my DH got me for mothers day last year when we had zero money. I loved it. I am in the same boat as you and think that i am going to steal you idea.

My husband wouldn't want me to do that either.  He thinks that we shouldn't give out pictures unless people ask for them.

 Men.... *shaking head*  I am sure your family would LOVE the pictures in a frame.

I don't think it's cheap. Plus people know times are tough. My Uncle and Aunt gave that as a gift one year and everyone enjoyed it just fine.
