AIBU to expect family presents for my kids' birthdays or Christmas. Sometimes get a shop voucher or cheque in the post but not always - DD 18th today no cards, telephone calls, 1 20 pound voucher and prior agreement that I give her 100 pounds. as they are in Euro Zone.
It still upsets me when it happens - what should I do - am I a fool to keep sending presents for the sake of their kids - really tempted to back off now DD is 18.
Who in your family do you think should send presents?
DP has about a million sisters, most of them have reproduced so far. He frequently forgets birthdays, especially of the sisters/nieces/nephews he hardly sees. He would probably be bankrupt if he tried to get them all gifts!
I have a very small family and we all do our best to give gifts for birthday or Christmas, but we still miss the odd occassion. It's not the end of the world.
