2 gifts or 1?
My sister and brother-in-law were VERY recently married and I am torn as to whether I should get them each a gift or get them one "Couples" gift? I have always bought them two different gifts but I don't know if that should still be the case. The answers have been pretty much torn down the middle when it comes to the sexs.
My female friends all say that I should get them one "Couple" gift to signify that I respect their marriage, that two have become one, and all that other business.
My male friends say that I should get a separate gift for each-- those who are married say that they rarely get any use out of the "Couple" type gifts and that I should show my Brother-in-Law how much I like him (which it do) by getting him a personal gift he would really enjoy.
Normally I would just buy 1 big gift and 2 respective small gifts for them but I bought my girlfriend a bracelet from the Jewelery store which I will be paying for over the next 12 months (till next Christmas lol) and don't have that kind of disposable income right now.
So you Know'ers of Christmas, what should I do? Have any of you had this problem?
"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." ~Charles Dickens
