Christmas Gifts

My nephew, who lives in a different state, moved in with his girlfriend. I have never met or spoken to his girlfriend. Is it rude to send him a Christmas gift and not her?

Gift Giving
by: Ms P Etiquette

Dear Aunt,​

​Gift giving is personal and varies with each situation. Are you comfortable excluding her? Perhaps it is customary in this relationship to acknowledge only the nephew? ​If he hasn't introduced the two of you, then it is not poor manners to send one gift. However, a card to him that extends holiday wishes to her as well would be thoughtful.
