I have a question/concern about Christmas gifts for my nieces and nephews...
In past years, in addition to getting each niece and nephew a book (that I sent thru Barnes and Noble, which does a terrible job of "wrapping" and charges a lot for it), I also sent a movie theater gift card to brother's and sister's family, enough for the entire family to see a movie, have popcorn, candy, soda etc. Everyone loved it, told me how great it was, kids loved it, etc. (Both brother and sister do not take their kids to the movies all the time, like I do, so this is more of a "treat" for them. sis has 3 kids, brother has two, so that may be a factor why.. )
This year, I'd like to only send the movie theater gift cards, as everyone seemed to really enjoy those the most. (The main reason is it's expensive getting the movie tickets AND individual gifts..)
So, I would send one card to sister's family, and one card to brother's. Everyone would get to go to the movies.
Is this appropriate, sending a "family" gift, considering I've given the kids individual gifts in years past?
Thanks for your input!
P.S. I have one daughter - my sister and brother usually send her a gift - usually a couple of gift cards from each. I, then, take her shopping up here to use them.
