My cousins on one side of the family are all 9+ years younger than me. We were very close growing up then I moved away. They've all left home, bought their own houses, had DC. I've always sent them birthday cards, but only one of them ever sends me one. I send their DC cards and money every birthday/Christmas. Would I bu to stop sending the adults cards?

Do you ever get a thank you? If not, fuck em.

No you wouldn't be unreasonable. I don't send birthday cards to any adults except immediate family. It's nice that you do it, but it's not expected, so it's completely up to you.

I wouldn't bother. I don't do any cards I'm afraid.

I don't get thank yous, I wouldn't expect it for just a card. The one who sends me a card always sends thank you cards for her DC birthday money and says what it went on, the others don't acknowledge cards/money, despite being on WhatsApp/FB.

Bin the ones that don't reciprocate or say thank you! Just send to the ones that do.
