    start using the draw number system, then make them participate once out of high school - it will wean them off it, and you won't look like a dick

    I don't think I'd ever stop sending them presents. I love them to bits.

    Nothing cooler that getting cool shit for you nephews. Well, I guess if you have a son it might be as cool.

    I'm the opposite. I don't have a daughter, so I spoil the shit out of my nieces, buying them all kinds of frilly girly shit.
    Then I have to even it out and buy as much shit for my nephew. It's this whole thing. But I love it.

    My kids are the youngest in the clan. So after years of giving the older ones great thoughtful gifts, I see my kids getting last minute gifts from the dollar store from their aunts and uncles. Why the fuck even bother with it.
