My son and his wife have been married a year and a half. This year they have asked to not exchange Christmas gifts. They are 23 my son and his wife 20. That they are at a point like we are that we have everything we want or we can get it when we want it.
I am OK with the idea. Just I have a 22 year old daughter that will be coming home from college for Christmas and she still wants to exchange gifts. Which my husband I want to too.
I have doubled checked with my son and his wife to confirm no gifts and that we will still be getting his sister something and I don't want them to be upset or feel she is our favorite. She did not ask to not do Christmas or neither have we.
Christmas Eve the three of us and our son will get together for dinner. So, no pressure should be had with not having gifts to open.
Christmas morning it will be our daughter and us so that is when we will do gifts. Which will just be a few things but something. So, they won't be left out. We may see them that day but they should be at his in laws. So, I feel it could go well. It is just different.
Its great at such a young age they want to focus on time together, we will go see Christmas lights etc together. And Christmas Eve our family.
Its just different.
