I'm curious, (OK, nosy!) about who everyone gives gifts to each year? We have a lot of threads going about buying gifts, receiving gifts, making gifts, gift ideas, etc. but I thought it might be helpful to share your gift giving plans with everyone and if you'd like, a general idea of what types of things you look for (age ranges would be help here). This year we don't know if we will be able to give gifts in person or if things will have to be mailed depending on the COVID-19 status in December. For example, here's mine: DH - Vic - so.hard.to.buy.for! Tools, a couple of clothing items, and anything I see him eyeing when we are out shopping. DD - Sophia, age twenty-something - always has an Amazon Wish List going so I can get an idea of what she'd like from that. I gave up giving her things I THOUGHT she would like and stick to what I KNOW she would like. This year she has new riding boots at the top of her list. Nephews - teenage boys - Visa gift cards - I gave up on Target or Amazon cards and just give Visa cards now - my bank doesn't charge for them and they can use them anywhere. DSis and BIL - we don't exchange gifts although I'm thinking this year that I might get the whole family (DSis, BIL, two nephews from group above) a large LEGO set. My sister let it drop that they have been enjoying working on projects as a family. They get a lot of snow so a nice set would be a fun way to spend a few days or a week or so together. Neighbors - retired - We're closest to two of our neighbors so I bought them each a box of chocolates last year, will probably do something similar this year. Neighbors - family with two under-ten boys - A family down the street has adopted me while Vic is gone - they stop by every so often with homemade cookies or a loaf of bread - last year I bought a game for the boys and some candy, will also look for something similar. Co-workers - We have a policy in place that forbids gift-giving over $10 so gave them each chocolates last year. I dropped a lot of hints to learn their favorites and they were all very touched and surprised I knew their tastes so well. Service employees - $25 each to trash collectors, landscaping crew, hairdresser. Mail delivery person - Last year I totally dropped the ball here when I found out that you can't give gift cards to postal employees. I knew you couldn't give cash but I didn't realize that the regulations forbid gift cards as well. I left it so long, my regular mail lady was off work, so I need to figure it out for this year. It has to be $20 or less. That's my list, as much as I'd love to have a big family, it does make it a little easier on the budget for the holidays to have a smaller one. I know many of you draw names which is a great idea especially for adults.
