Re: Any other families doing this?
On my side of the family, no one has exchanged gifts in a long, long time. Od DH side every year my BIL and SIL request that we only buy for the kids because money is tight. That's fine with me - it takes the pressure off of gift giving and we can have fun picking something special out for our niece. SIL usually specifically asks for a couple things, but this year I got her a personalized bag and two new outfits as well .
