My dh and I do not have children. However, we have many nieces and nephews ranging in ages from 8 to 18. Now for a confession… We have difficulty with gifts for them. It’s like, “and” or “oh”. We are not rich and do the best we can. This year we had three graduating. We bought a book for each of them, found quotes for each child, wrote a couple of loving thoughts, and put a 100 dollar bill inside. We did not receive one thank you verbally or in writing. We have no ideal if they liked the gifts or thought we were cheap. They received cars, ski jets, etc. We cannot afford more without going in debt – which I am unwilling to do even for myself.
I would like to knit gifts for them for Christmas but don’t know if they would enjoy the gifts. Any thoughts?
