I reached 'peak stuff'years ago and really don't want any more stuff. I'm always very grateful though and really do appreciate the sentiment. What do I then do with all the stuff?

The obvious thing is to donate to charity in the new year

Any food gifts (biscuits tin etc) you could give to a food bank

Any wash sets take the items out of boxes and take to a food bank or a local women's refuge

Send them to me, I'm hunting for raffle prizes grin

Seriously though, give them to the school for tombolas etc or churches for their shin digs. Or a charity shop or eBay if they're worth selling. There will be somewhere who will be happy to take them.

Who is the stuff from? Can you agree to stop giving presents, or to only give token things, or food? I'm sure most reasonable adults would understand your position smile

That's a good idea, food bank and woman's refuge.
