@alan Things get weird when you get married, start having kids, and dealing with unbalanced family trees (mine was much larger). Caught between two families, having to reciprocate gifts, when the single gal with a good career job is buying for 3-4 people and we're buying for 9-10 on a single income... that's tough. We spent a lot of years negotiating spending limits, round-robin exchanges, etc. Sister-in-law always broke the rules anyway. :)
@CarlCravens yeah. getting gifts for a near a dozen people every year sucks. thankfully i knew what to get them.
