I get them a shutterfly calendar each year of their grandkids. I may add amazon GC as well since they are prime members and always buy stuff off of it.

My dad doesn't want anything, he has enough of everything. I make him a big tin of Christmas cookies and buy some German holiday treats.
The other parents are gone.

Nothing. I am not going home this year and we stopped exchanging gifts because it became exchanging gift cards. It’s a waste and we don’t need more stuff. I also cannot afford to get them anything at this time. My legal bills are adding up.

Nothing - it’s become this exchanging of gift cards amongst all the adults so we put a stop on that a couple years ago. Kids only. Us adults can buy whatever we want for ourselves, whenever we want.

Yep. I'm on a mission to stop Christmas gifts between adults. Would make life easier and less stressful. I buy anything I want when I want it

Ugh, they are the hardest. I bought my dad some clothes. He was diagnosed with stomach cancer and has lost a lot of weight. Chat Icon But I also got him a calendar with photos of my DD each month since she is literally the thing that keeps him going, plus I figured it would be a good place to write down appointments to keep track. I also had DD make him a framed sign that says "World's Best Grandpa... Hands Down" with her hand prints on it.

My mom I got a sweater and a new house for her North Pole village that she was eyeing when we were out shopping.

I usually get them a smaller individual gift each, and then a gift card to go out to a nice restaurant. They are hard to buy for.

This year, I got my mom a bleacher/stadium seat thing, because she comes to watch all of my son's baseball games (and other sports) and the bleachers are super uncomfortable.

My dad is harder - he can often use new clothes, so I may just buy him a few shirts. Last year, I think I got him nice new slippers.

I usually give a new school pic of my son in a nice frame, and my sister gives them a photo calendar of her 2 kids and my son.
