20. "And what do the nieces and nephews think?" In response to Reply # 17 Mon Dec-22-14 11:52 AM by TheAlbionist
Think back to being a kid... you'd rather have a bit of paper that forces you to shop in a certain store... or something awesome to unwrap and play with?
If you can't find the time/commitment to buy proper presents, give cash so they can get whatever they want. I aaallllways had a gift card that I'd have to sell to my parents (i.e. a shop I didn't want anything to do with) or one that I'd find 6 months after the fact that had expired because I didn't need anything from that particular shop in time.
Neither are replacements for actually spending some time and buying an appropriate present though. It's Christmas, not Mammonfest. My family would side-eye me to death if I turned up with 10 minutes worth of gift cards for everyone. Really shows LOVE!
