Giving Presents

Did You Get or Give More This Christmas?

It's hard to put a cost estimation on presents sometimes, because the thought and effort that goes into picking or making a gift can be priceless. The thing is, you don't want to go overboard with buying something that's too expensive or the recipient might feel obliged to return the same favor. And, you have to factor in your personal budget. Therefore it's always safer to go with "experience" gifts, which include handmade coupons for things like a girls' night out or offering to cook meals. Handmade presents are a good choice as well.

But what was this Christmas like for you — do you feel like you gave more than you received, or do you feel that you received more than you gave?

We definitely gave out more gifts than received. It's been this way for a long time.

I'm not sure. PROBABLY gave more than I received. My husband's family gave me a lot of great presents and hubby and I gave them good presents, too (I hope.) On the other hand, my side of the family gave us absolutely ZILCH. Not even a card, not even a phone call (I had to call first) but I know they're struggling when it comes to money, so, that's OK! It did hurt a little, though, 'cause since they never explained, I don't know if the lack of gifting this year was due to lack of funds or just plain old being mad at me for whatever reason? So I guess yes, overall I ended up giving more than I received.

It's about even. Everyone I give something, gets me something as well.

I got more than I gave. My family agreed to a family gift exchange but two of my aunts decided to get all the grandkids a little extra gift. Also, my grandparents went a little overboard this year.
