Re: S/O do you buy for more than just your own family for Christmas?

We used to by for everyone, and I mean EVERYONE
his parents
my parents
his 2 grandmas
my 2 sets of grandparents
my aunt
5 of his aunts
1 of his cousins
his 9 siblings and their 2 spouses
our 3 nieces and nephews
my 4 siblings

So that was 35 gifts aside from each other and our kids

We still buy a lot, but have cut back and do gift exchanges with his 5 oldest siblings and spouses and my siblings, so that reduces 11 gifts to 4 (2 from each of us) and we draw names for his aunts with his older siblings so each of them gets an aunt each year.

It's still a pretty crazy number of gifts though
