    Here’s a thought, why not not just give money, like on Chinese New Year? Except it’s done on Christmas.
    -
    Works for anyone who wants to make things easy on themselves and avoid shopping on Christmas and people who don’t know what to get others for Christmas…
    -
    At least that’s what some of my relatives do… I mean, it works for me!
    -
    After getting the money I would hunt for the stuff/present I want and if I’m lucky, I get it at a Discount on Sale and STILL have some money left to save or spend as I choose.

    Eh Joan, they’re below the age where they can yet have liquor (absolute necessity to make flip even marginally drinkable).

    Or we can get Nasty and like “No Presents this year…?? Prepare for a WHOLE (next) YEAR OF VINDICTIVENESS… and there are FIVE of us!!”. Still thinking about that “Nog”…??

    Holly holding the baby—what is she thinking? Holly could lead a conspiracy to withhold the baby for more presents!!!

    When I was a kid the presents were opened by 10:00 and we were bored with them by dinner.

    I think she’s messing with them now. It might have been a serious conversation before, but now she’s just having fun.

    If people did that the economy would collapse. Christmas is when most merchants make their nut for the year.

    Quick stop at Clancy’s and a pint or two (or three) of “Nog”? Chrismas shopping never looked so good afterwards!

    my step sister gave my mom money for Christmas once. Mom was never so insulted in her life that this person could spend no time on choosing a gift for her. I would have taken the money! LOL

    If you gave my grandmother a gift, she’d say she already had six of “those” and would have rather had the money. Of course if you gave her money, she’d be insulted because you didn’t take the time to get her something. A gift card was the worst, because she would have to go (sigh!) all the way to whatever shop it was to spend it. Never happy.

    Money for a gift makes a lot more sense than some trinket that a person doesn’t need or really want. I certainly wouldn’t be insulted if someone wanted to give me money. The more money they gave me, the less insulted I would be. ;-)
