Will you be giving Christmas gifts this year? If yes, to who?
I will, only to my two little kids, since we don't really have relatives, whole family is in China
We have a large family, so we always put names in a hat and buy gifts for only the names we draw. We also have a white elephant drawing, it make for a great Christmas Eve celebration.
To my children, young adults, I am making scrapbooks of their childhood photos and mementos.
To various adults and visitors, I will be giving, ' gifts from the kitchen'......bean soup mixtures, hot chocolate mixes, various jellys.......
I refuse to go into debt for an obligated gift. My hubby and I have never exchanged Christmas gifts. We have the gift of each other!
Everyone receives the gift of goodwill...........
For my son, and possibly for my daughter as well, though she'll only be a month old by then so she really won't care much if we buy her something extra this year. Possibly something small for my moms, sisters, nieces, and brand new nephew who will be about three weeks old at Christmas. My husband and I never buy specific holiday gifts for each other, if we know of something the other wants then we'll just get it if we can rather than waiting for a special occasion, so we give each other time instead. Other than that...I'm flat-out broke and everyone else will have to be happy with a verbal "Merry Christmas" from us .
Yes, to my fiance... he needs a new hood for his BMW that he wrecked...
No. Six years ago, our youngest daughter (then 30) suggested "2004, gifts no more". We have all stuck to that.
I have a hub where I have asked for catchy phrases for 2010 and 2011, but so far we have nothing really memorable. You need a good catch phrase like that to get the no gifting thing rolling,
Thanks for your responses. Let's keep it goin. Tell me more. What else are you giving or not giving?
I would like to give a surprise gift in Christmas to my loving daughter.
My daughter loves pearls of any color in light shade. As pearls never runs out of fashion, I may choose a pink pearl jewelry which will go with white or pink dress. The whole get up will look elegant and appreciable.
hah, i wanna want to buy a watch to my dad and a handbag to my mother, i know men love watches and woman love handbags, i love my family, love my parents, and they are getting older, i want to do my effort to let them happy.
We just bought a house that we're gutting and renovating so money is really tight. I'm sure we'll give something to our son (but I haven't bought it yet - yikes!). But, as far as presents to each other - nothing major, just token presents, or gift certificates to the hardware store. :-)

Have you reduced your spending on Christmas gifts this year because of the economic situation?The news does not seem to be improving, so how much impact has it had on your spending for Christmas? Are you shopping less, or buying from cheaper places, or does it not matter at all?

When I was a kid, I loved Christmas. I was so excited I could hardly sleep. Now that I have kids I want Christmas to be about family. Not gifts. So we get each daughter one gift and ask that our parents get them one gift as well.Any thoughts on what the right number of gifts...

Does anyone know any person; a friend, neighbor, sibling, acquaintance, work mate e.t.c who is not a Christian? In the light of the Christmas mood and spirit, what gift do you think is best to share with such a person?
