Should my live-in boyfriend's family buy my son a Christmas gift?

My 11 year old son and I live with my boyfriend and his 12 year old daughter. We are going to his family's Christmas celebration in Chicago this year. Is it wrong to think that his parents and immedate family should buy a small gift for my son so he isn't left out during gift exchange?

​This is a conversation you must have with your boyfriend before visiting his family. More than a matter of etiquette, this is a basic family issue whether or not you are married. Do this for yourself and for your son. Now is the time to set proper boundaries in your relationship since it involves two young children.
