Can The Collective help with some gift ideas?
We don’t really celebrate Christmas. For us it is usually very low key with one family present, we haven’t even put up a tree for a couple of years. This year we are spending Christmas day at the home of my son’s in-laws. I am bringing a dessert to share and I want to bring some kind of hostess gift. I am not going to bring anything alcoholic. Any ideas for an appropriate gift?
Also, the family we carpool with is planning to get gifts for our kids and I feel like we should reciprocate with something. I was thinking of giving the parents movie passes and letting them decide whether they want a parents’ night out or a family trip to the movies. Is that appropriate even though I am fairly sure they will be giving gifts to each of our kids?
We are not wealthy so cost is a consideration. Your ideas would be appreciated!
