Who buys the gifts for OH's family?


I always end up buying the gifts and writing the cards for my in-laws, even last year when we weren't getting on.

It's the same for birthdays, it's me that sends the card or buys the present and if I don't do it then they don't get one.

Even if I remind DH every day for weeks in advance he still forgets.

So who does it in your family?

It's mixed really, I usually end up sorting out cards because OH won't write them to friends etc and I usually end up wrapping most of his presents because well... you should see the state they end up in! But the past two years he's bought them himself for his side, we'll see what happens this year haha

I do it. dh is crap at buying gifts for family. Occasionally he buys for fil if he has seen something though. I don't mind though because now that we (sils etc) decided just to buy mil/fil and the kids I enjoy it. I wouldn't enjoy dh buying for the nieces. this year we're going out together BUT I'll still pick the pressies

I pick all the gifts for both our families, as my OH is poop with things like that, but we use our joint money. x

My OH is useless. He literally does nothing for christmas. I chose, I buy, I wrap, I organise, I plan on visiting, I cook Oh and I tidy

Wish my OH wasnt such a 1950s man.
