I really don’t want to be lumped into the Black Friday or Christmas shopping crowd so I always do all my shopping right around November 1. We spent probably the same amount on the grandkids that we do every year but yeah, I buy them clothes and stuff. We do absolutely no adult shopping and haven’t for years.
My husband and I haven’t gotten each other a Christmas gift since the birth of our first child. (well, he will put Chapstick in my stocking... I go through that stuff like crazy!). The only adult we do shopping for is the kid’s Aunt (well, technically she is a second cousin to them but acts like an Aunt...goes to their birthdays, Godmother to the kids etc). Since she is really the only extended family that involves herself with the kids.. we do cherish her.
