that there are places like Wilko/supermarkets/cheaper places that are selling some lovely Christmas gifts, yet you know that the people you have to buy for are too snobby to appreciate it, even if it was really nice? Every year we struggle with sil/ils because they have the cash to buy what ever they want, and we find it hard to get them things they will like and appreciate. Yet, no matter how much we spend or how much thought went into choosing it, we get the same ungrateful/uninterested comments. Every year we joke about getting them a 'we donated x amount in your name to x charity', but haven't got the guts. This is why i love kids, they are so grateful at xmas, they don't sit their checked where it came from or how much it costs... i'm stressed and haven't even started shopping yet!
