Christmas Gifts? Adult kids with children..
Hi all - its kind of a new dilemma for us - with all the grandchildren and my DH and I on a fixed income - while a good income for us (pension, SS, and PT work - we are fine) Christmas with all the dear grandkids and adult kids - the Christmas season is a little overwhelming financially.

So, that being said - we are planning to get the adult kids a beautiful hand-made item from Costa Rica (I went there earlier this year) and then get each grand-child a couple of nice gifts that will be specific to their age and interest.


The adult kids usually get us a substantial gift card to a online market that we absolutely love and can use.

Are we on the right track? What I like may not be what they like...

Thanks for your thoughts..

Buying gifts is so hard!

Many in my family are limited income. When grandchildren came along, it was okay to buy for the kids and skip the parents. I don't know if anybody minded this. I didn't.

I would love a gift from Costa Rica! As I get older, I really appreciate the little things.

Our kids (DS and DDIL's) are great! I think they will love what I picked up in CR. But, we have to put the emphasis on the kids versus the adult kids.
I think our sons understand this..
