    We usually agree not to exchange gifts and 1/2 the time he buys something for me anyway and makes me feel like a dick. :fil:

    I got my sister a couple of gift cards. She will usually buy me a Star Wars calendar and a gift card for Walmart or Amazon.

    Buying gifts instead of gift cards for her usually results in a return on her part

    No, not for years.

    If my brother had a kid, I'd buy presents for the kid. Same goes with my best friend, but she doesn't have have children either.

    Nowadays that's the only people I'll buy presents for....kids involved with my immediate family or close friends.

    Nope. If you're over 18 and not in college you don't get shit from me. That goes for nieces and nephews, too.

    I get my sister something, because she invites me over on Christmas and she's local. My brothers live far away and we don't exchange gifts. Our gifts to each other is not having to deal with the madness.

    I've never seen so many people who don't want to give gifts. It's really weird. It's a time to celebrate.
