Do you ever feel cheap when you find out your gift is way less that the inlaws gave your kids? what about other people?

well so far my son and dil greg and shannon got a new fridge and stove. Jess`s family will go all out too. cant wait to see what they get. i had a 100 limit per kid. feel so cheap now

to me Christmas time you get together and enjoy each other and have a small gift limit.

Jess`s parents gave them several big gifts last year. one was finiahing the wiring and gyproc in the upstairs...not cheap. they hired a guy

Both familily were given farms...lived on them ...no home payments...taxes 200 a year. each also has jobs away from home and farm. never had divorces to pay for, child support of serious medical troubles with kids. we were behind before we started

I got the girls sterling silver chains with stering silver heart lockets that they can put a picture in. no inscriptions. without the writing they were supposed to come in time. They were like 60% off.

Tomorrow i get the boys chains i got them at 70% 0ff. they are the silver chains with lazer cut balls(4 ) on them. thought they could all have matching ones...a brotherly thing thay can all have from me

I feel that your amount is fine Glenda. You give what you can afford.
