Hi Ladies,

So I have a soon to be three year old and a 7 week old with the same guy but we aren't together, but I usually try and get him a present for fathers day or christmas in behalf of our oldest son. Now that the second baby is here I was thinking of making him a canvas with the both of the kids foot and handprints and a nice little quote or a picture of both the kids; something crafty but then I was thinking to myself should I even bother? Some say to do so others say not to. I mean each time I give hima  gift he gets emotional and seems to appreciate it but I never get anything, people say thats how guys tend to be they just dont think like us girls but still now I am wondering if I should or shouldnt. Any opinions or advice. 

Thank you!! =)

If you guys get along and you feel like giving it, go for it. I used to when my ex and I got along.

Now I'd love to get him handcuffs and a swift kick in the nuts.

I don't see anything wrong with it. I mean as long as he's a good dad 2 the kids. I was thinking 2 do something along the lines for my son 2 be able 2 get his farther a present for christmas but that's just me I want 2 show my son what christmas is all about and later on he'll relize what I was doing for him so he'll never question the fact if I ever cared about his and his farthers relationship.

I don't spend any money on the ex, but in the past I have baked his favorite cookies for my son to give him. My son is 3 now and wants to decorate sugar cookies, so that can be his gift to his dad along with a homemade card. I like the idea of doing something crafty with handprints. It is both thoughtful and appropriate.

I dont.  Now, when they get older, if they ask me to help them pick out something, i will.  But they are only 3 and dont really get the concept of getting gifts for others yet.
