Do you and your siblings buy birthday/xmas presents for each other? How about your other half and their siblings?

No, we don't, except for one BIL (husband's brother) who lives close and buys for our birthdays.
We don't buy for my brothers or sisters or DH's younger brother who lives in Ireland.

Yep! All gifts are adressed from DP and I, so we don't have to double up buying gifts for everyone.
My brother usually gets a $50 giftcard of somekind, I put more thought into my sisters gift but that's just because she has more interests then just Xbox
We also buy for DP's sister and brother. Aswell as eachother and both sets of parents. That's all the adults we buy for, though I usually bake/craft other little gifts from grandparents/aunts/uncles etc.

We definitely do , partners too, DH,s siblings ( or parents don't!) they just buy for kids but since we have had DS , he ( me !) buys them something as I think it's important to teach him to give presents , not just get them

Me and my brother.....Birthdays, always. The last few Chrismas's's's's we decided to cancel eachother out and not buy anything, but I still get him something small and he hates it. Made him a hamper last year and he said "right thats it, Im not believing this 'we arent buying presents this year' thing you keep saying because every year you get me something and I feel bad. B***h." LOL
DP usually gets his sister something for both but we didnt do Xmas presents last year as everyone was pinching pennies.

Yes I always buy a present for my sister for birthdays and Christmas and she does the same for me.
We (and I mean me as DH is hopeless at buying presents) used to buy DH's sister a Christmas present but not birthday as she would never buy him anything. But we don't have contact with her anymore so won't have to buy anything.

Birthdays - Nope, never. On both sides.We do buy Xmas gifts but we have a family agreement that all gifts are charity donations. We usually buy the Oxfam gift cards.

For Christmas, My immediate family does a $50 Secret Santa. Us kids will get our parents a birthday gift. Last year when DS came along (and each of my siblings had babies too) I asked that no one buy me or DH b'day presents anymore but we'll buy for the babies instead.
DH's family is his responsibility For both birthdays & Christmas ;-)

I have four siblings and only my youngest sister lives in the same state so we buy her a present. Df only has a sister who we buy for also as she lives close by.
I'm sure if my siblings lived closer we would
And we always buy presents at Christmas as we all get together for family xmas
