My wife’s family and my own are polar opposites when it comes to gift giving and special occasions. My family believes it’s not the cost when it comes to gift giving, but the thought and effort put into it. On the other hand, my wife’s family is more concerned with being there with said family than any gift giving at all.
Whether your family growing up, or your family today, which one are you? The conscientious gift-givers or one of those who value time with family more than any gifts?
