Do you do gifts for your brothers, sisters, mom, dad, or any of DH's immediate family? If you don't do gifts do you do cards?

Cards when I can remember for my immediate family.
His family isn't super close to us so we usually just say happy birthday on Facebook.

Yep, we do gifts for immediate family. There aren't many - his parents, my parents, and my sister & brother.

Nope. I feel bad about it but we haven't been able to afford it. Most of my immediate family & their lil families live in Australia, so it can get costly to send things over there.

No to both. We just get for each other. Meaning myself, Dave and Drake.

We used to spend a lot of time on gifts for family. But after a while of getting no thank you or acknowledgement for the gifts we stopped. We just give gifts to our parents now.

It really depends on the year/birthday here. I sent my sister a nice gift for her 30th, and once in a while I send stuff to my brother, but he is young and single and couldn't care less for a card. I send stuff to my mom all the time, sometimes to the in-laws.

I often buy online and have stuff shipped direct so I don't have to pay to mail it.

We don't even really do cards. Sometimes we do but most of the time we just call and wish a happy birthday and then we try to get out for dinner together.
