Re: Any other families doing this?

Yep. DH and I bought a camera last month because ours broke. We can't afford to buy gifts for each other now or anyone else really for that matter. So the boys will get just a few things.

I will also get one of my sisters a gift. I have 7 siblings and for the past 20 years we have had a name draw. We select one name each year to get a present for just one sibling. It's worked out great! We don't have to struggle to get everyone something. But I have never been able to afford anything for my nieces and nephews, I may handmake something small, or regift something like-new to the littlest one.
