Our oldest son got married this year to a girl he had been dating on and off for 8-9 years. Our youngest son had been dating a girl for about a year. Is it necessary to spend the same amount on each of them for Christmas?

Gift Giving
by: Ms P Etiquette

Hello Poni,

The length of time you've known someone is not the benchmark for gift spending. I assume you have separate relationships with each of these women. Let that be your guide. Give each a gift that you feel they will really enjoy and that is within your budget. Whether or not these gifts are of equal monetary value is not really relevant, but your feelings for each other is.
