Oh teh nooooes! Some years I try to get all the shopping done before Thanksgiving and other years I refuse to think about it before then. I don't know what kind of year this is yet!

I don't even have any ideas for Christmas

I would really like to get away from all the presents from the grand parents but just don't know how. We as a family gave up one present each to adopt a family last year.

You could ask for fewer/no presents or only practical stuff. That's what my grandma did. She doesn't have the room for the stuff and prefers just cards with new pictures and family to visit. Asking for that is not a bad thing to do at all and they shouldn't get offended or upset or think you're weird. My grandma was straight up about it. She just said no presents and that was that. We may have to do the same thing this year because we are running out of space from all the random stuff Lily gets outside of her birthday and Christmas from her grandparents lol.

I can't think that far ahead.

No one in our extended family is very gifty thankfully, we like to have fun with it but don't go overboard.

Our kids get 2 gifts, 1 from us and then we draw names and sometimes we'll do a family gift for all of them. I think they're all getting new ski helmets this year because they need them, and that will already add up times 5.

The grandparents go way over and they buy junk to buy/give junk.

I am think of asking for a small present per child then if they have to need to do more, put money on a movie card so the family can go to the movies or on a hotel card so we can take them for a stay over night in the city and waterslide. Something along those lines.

Ask them to invest in activities/Memberships. Zoo memberships, museums, gift cards to local fun places.
