I’d say I have about 10 to shop for and that’s because my family does Pollyanna (adults and children) every year when we have our annual Christmas party.

Immediate family: wife & (now) 3 kids; extended family of a few sisters and parents. There's always a few things we get for friends and teachers and donations, too.

 

10-15

Hubby

2 sons

My dad

2 sisters and their families (8 there)

Gift exchange at work (1)

Secret Santa here! (Love this!)

I'll be finding a gift of some kind to give my friend who stops and picks up my son and drives him to school every morning. I work at the school but leave way before he has to be there and I really appreciate her doing this for us.

 

So it looks like about 15 or so, but will probably end up being a little higher by the time all is said and done.


Sometimes the thoughts in my head go for a walk out through my mouth. This is rarely a good thing. :no:

Only 10 or 15. We only do kids outside of our household. Our extended family agrees and is happy to save money on adults.

I only shop for a few. DH, my daughter & son in law, 2 sons, my MIL and 2 friends that are like family. DHs family is horrible about the holidays and I don’t even bother to join the gift exchange they have. It’s not worth the grief.

My 3 kids (around 100-150 each)

My son's fiance (around 20)

My other son's girlfriend (around 20)

My 10 year old niece (around 20-30)

 

We will also buy/make a little something for my dad.  It is going to be a hard Christmas this year because my mom (his wife of 42 years) passed away in August.  This was her favorite time of year so it's gonna be hard.

 

We usually buy for:

my FIL & MIL, my sister and BIL, my BIL and his wife, and our nephew (he is 16) but this year finances are extremely tight so not sure if we will be able to get them a gift or not.  We might just make homemade Christmas ornaments and make cookies or something for them.
