Just wondering how everyone does their presents at Christmas with your SO. Do the two of you get your parent’s presents together or seperately? I am getting ready to student teach after Christmas and am a full time student, meaning I won’t be able to work much in the next few months. FI’s parents are so hard to shop for and with money being tight, I asked him if we could just put both our names on presents to my family and the same with his. I wasn’t sure if most people do this also or if you each get everyone presents seperately. We are not currently living together but are working on building a house before the wedding. Thanks!! 🙂

We give presents together. We can get one nice present this way as opposed to two smaller presents. It’s a lot easier on us.

We have been giving Christmas presents together even before we were engaged. Well, that was only the first year, but still. Just easier that way.

We gift together. My Darling Husband and I started a tradition last year, which we are continuing this year 🙂 (yay!), where we get professional Christmas photos done, frame them, and send multiple out to all our close family along with whatever other item we decided to get them, always as Mr & Mrs. Kitty. Some of his distant family even asked if we could send them a photo too they liked them so much.

We gift together for Christmas. That just makes sense to me. My parents together give me gifts, I don’t get them seperately from my mom and dad, so why would we each buy them each something, that’d be too much I think.

We gift together and have for almost our entire relationship (except maybe the first few years of dating…). It just makes sense to do it that way!

Thanks ladies! Just wanted to make sure other people who are engaged do this before they are married!

We given gifts together long before we were engaged. It totally depends on who the gift is for and the budget. For family tend to get some gifts together, especially when our budgets are tight. But for friends its seperate.
