holiday gift question- teens we hardly know

Dec 11, 2012 - 3 comments

So we are going across the pond to see my dh family for christmas- taking 1 year olds on an 8 hour flight- doesnt that sound fun!!!  Anyway- his best friend (who I dont really care for) has 11 and 14 year old girls.  SO my DH  asked him what we might bring them as a little gift- he said Polo or Abercrombie hoodies!!! REALLY- he never even sent a card when our girls were born and we are supposed to take each of his children $70 hoodies- REALLY????  Now- am I over-reacting bc I dont like the guy- or is this unreasonable.  What do we do?  I am not even spending that on my own nieces and nephews- well I am if we are spending that on friends kids!!! lol

I think a gift card to either place in an amount you find suitable would work just fine!  :). That's what I would do anyway....

unreasonable... I don't even spend that much on my nieces.  I don't know your financial standing but 70 dollars on a gift is way too much.  I would say a 20 dollar gift card.  itunes is good.

I would go with American Eagle LOL. They are the same in my eyes as Abercrombie and they have SUPER sales this time of year! Or just a GC for the amount you want as well.
I dont spend 70.00 on anyone on my list aside from my little family now(DB and DD), so I certainly wouldnt spend it on someone elses kids and especially if you arent close
