    @abricot_chat:  Haha honestly I think you’re being a bit of a scrooge, but in the end he ended up being a good guy. Since they’re family, I think you should at least send them a card with a check for their college savings account, but whether you get them that or a gift depends on how you and your husband want the kids to think of you. Do you want to be the cool aunt & uncle who got them one of their favorite toys, or the perfectly nice aunt & uncle, whose gift towards their college savings they don’t appreciate until they’re 17 at youngest, or ever?

    Can you send them a little gift/something to open & a check?  Best of both worlds :]

    How about a compromise, a small gift with a cheque for education?

    For our nieces and nephews, we contribute to a college savings account that we have already set up for each of them and then we also give them a small (under $20) gift to open as well.

    No kid wants a check for Christmas. I’d let the parents take care of the college and get them a nice gift. That’s what we do for our nephews.

    @abricot_chat:  I will give money and a book to my niece. The last thing she needs are more toys and I don’t care if that’s scroogy. Kids are way too spoiled nowadays.

    I would send them a small toy and a check for their college fund!

    @abricot_chat:  I’d do something small for each (kids love to open presents, no matter how small!) and a cheque. I don’t think you’re being a Scrooge- Scrooges give nothing at all!
