    DS.
    My parents, sister, brother, sister (joint with her hubby) & niece.
    MIL, FIL, SIL (joint with long term b/f) & BIL.

    Gift prices can range from $20-$75 depending on person & whether it's a joint gift.
    (Eg: My mum is happy with something homemade by DS but MIL prefers an actual store brought gift)

    The kids
    Each other (maybe, not every year)
    My brother.

    If we are seeing DFs mum and partner we'll get them a present as well. We don't normally see his sisters at Christmas time but if we do it's kids only. Same with my Dad, if we see him we buy something.

    Christmas is pretty much all about the kids in our family so far.

    Husband, son, mother, father, siblings, nieces, inlaws (so parents, kids, siblings again) couple of friends, wishing tree donations.

    They day my family tries to do secret Santa or only buy for the kids is the day I scream and throw an tantrum lol. I do not understand why people say Christmas is just for kids.

    This year I've decided enough is enough! If he wants to buy gifts for all his family he can do it all himself, if he doesn't do it, then they can go without. (I know I'll cave on this, and will end up doing all the shopping ! And then go and line up for hours at Australia post with two screaming kids to pay a small fortune to post gifts to the other side of the country.. Gifts that people I don't like won't appreciate, but ohh well, it's the thought that counts, right?!)
    Don't do it. I decided one year that enough was enough, Christmas is the same day every year, it's not a surprise, and if he didn't get organised (for the kids here and overseas) that they would miss out and didn't get a present from us (they probably wouldn't have noticed). Now I sit back and his presents (including his work secret santa) is his responsibility. Job done!
